We Guard Cats have not abandoned our post.
We have strategically shifted our post
No one is going to steal the outside areas of the fort now that it has gotten so chilly.
The cozy inside is another matter…
We are vigilantly guarding the warm bed and keeping it warm in so doing.
You’re welcome, Humans.

A Guard Cat is never truly at repose.
It may look as though I am getting ready for a nap but I am really guarding this computer bag.
Now go away as the guarding of bags is best performed asleep.
The perimeter is secure…
…thanks to me,…
…Guard Cat Extraordinaire.
Woofs are really all the Woofies contribute to guarding the homestead.
We Guard Cats, on the other paw, come equipped with laser-shooting eyes.
–Phelps and Darth Vader
No one survives the Rabbit-Kick-of-Death!
Not unless they are offering a can or two or three or bakers dozen of Tuna…
Get the Tuna, quickly, before I render your dominant opposable thumb inactive, Human!
The big door is finally opening for me.
I’m graduating from the Guard Cat Academy!
A thorough patrol is de rigueur.
After that, Guard-Catting closely ressembles lounging, or so says my lieutenant Darth Vader.
I’m on break.
But I’m always alert.
Always ready to guard the homestead against intruders.
Don’t worry, little daffodil. I will keep you safe from the trampling paws of the clumsy Woofies.
A great guard Cat can be sweet and tough simultaneously. For example, you can bestow a lap cuddle on a deserving Human while training your steely, intimidating gaze on the perimeter of the fort.
A great guard Cat is never caught sleeping on the job. The open mouth? It’s not a yawn–it’s a fearsome roar.
