Well, here's what happened tonight when Cane reached out and touched Lester.
Note that Cane is enjoying the hell out of this, and Lester is...not.
He stuck it out, though. When a cat doesn't want to leave the warm space they've found, it takes a lot more than a mischievous greyhound touching their butt to get them to move. Eventually, though, Lester put his ears back, said "Eff this", and ran upstairs.
Such is life at Casa Jaquandor!
