Do Cats Have Alphas?
Not really.The concept of an “alpha” comes from now-outdated research on wolves.In more recent years, researchers have come to understand that wolf packs are actually family groups and the adults that are “in charge” or “alpha” are the parents.Much like human families, the relationship dynamics of these groups vary and change over time.There is no closely-guarded position of alpha that must be maintained by force.Instead there is a large range of body language that lets the wolves communicate and cooperate.
