Hera knows this. She went into the Time Out cage, and Lightning wouldn't come in after her. He'd stand in the doorway and bat at her, but all she had to do was shrug backwards, and he wouldn't follow her inside. So she sat there, like a kid playing Tag who was "on base," and glared at him, as he ran around the room.
Then she came out and jumped him when she was good and ready. Ah, cats.
