Alpha cat?

How can you tell which cat is the Alpha cat in a group?

In our group Huckleberry only sits on the prime roosting spot when Strider is off somewhere doing his normal activities. If Strider comes back and it's occupied he just takes it without even a dirty look from Huckleberry.

Our apha cat herds the human to feed the cats when it is feeding time, owns the top roost, and every so often "plays" to re-establish dominance. He's also the youngest and biggest of our cats and mostly acts like a golden retriever. It is pretty obvious who the alpha cat is in most households as the alpha cat will attach themselves to the alpha human.
