Predecessor, villain, antagonist. Dogs the enemies of cats
The dogs bark terrorizing the cats
The cats don't put up with that
They are fierce, bloodthirsty, threatening to the dog.
Then the dogs get sad
They get somber, down, forlorn
Then the dogs and cats calm down
breezeless, peace, cool
Then the dogs fall asleep and get rest
The next day the dogs go at it again
The process repeats every day, every night, every year.
