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!

This relates to:
À + qui, auquel, à laquelle = to whom, what, which (relative pronouns) -

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 !
