For reasons we've never fully understood, cats and dogs have had long-standing animosity toward each other. While dogs tend to use brute strength to win conflicts, we suspects cats will do whatever they need to get the upper hand (er, paw). As proof, check out this image where a cat totally seems to be holding a dog with one paw and sucker punching him with the other.

Courtesy of Flickr user a_ninjamonkey, the photo shows a cat taking a swipe at a Pomeranian in what looks to be the most hotly-contested battle for supremacy ever. According to the image's description, the animals are named Rajah and Merlin, but don't ask us which is which.

The description also says the animals are "playing," but this looks serious to us, and if the dog's surprised expression is any indication, the kitty is definitely winning.
