Le chat, auquel tu as fait peur, s'est caché sous le lit.

Le chat, auquel tu as fait peur, s'est caché sous le lit.

I notice in the above examples, that the sentence talking about a cat is only translated using auquel. Is 'à qui' not applicable here? Is a cat not treated as a living thing in this instance? Thanks for your help!

Bonjour Andy ! "à qui" is indeed applicable to the cat as well, and thanks to you, we've now added this example to the lesson :) Merci et à bientôt !
