Intimidate Your Opponent with Body Language

Ever seen a cat arch it's back, puff up it's fur and it's tail, and hiss a bit - all to intimidate a potential foe?

like this?

or like this ???

I have, and it's pretty darn impressive.

even kittens do it -- wee little kitties

Ever seen a kid at bat do the same thing? I had not. Until last weekend. I didn't even notice it at the time, but my trusty Canon G9 caught the action. Oh my yes, it surely did. Take a look:
yes, folks, that is grandson TREVOR,
intimidating his opponents
Guess it was effective - they won the game.
Your smiling,

Very cute comparison with the kitty! I have to puff myself up all the time at work....little old me telling big guys what to do all the time!! I'll think of the cat and might even hiss a little too.
