My Lacey does this to my cat, Spoozie. She will chase, bark and growl at him if he comes near me and she wants the attention. I now just look at her, tell her he was the baby first and pick him up and give him lots of attention. Lacey is very attached to me, and by that I should have named her "Velcro strip" instead of Lacey. She is a very lovable little dog but she has decided she wants to be the number one baby in my family. I just tell her no. I don't know if this is helpful to you in anyway but I thought I would post so you would know you are not alone. Spoozie might be a cat to many people, but to me he is my child. Good Luck.
