A Show of Force

My Disciples,

There has been increasing chatter recently about the possibility that agents of the Long-feared Dog Uprising are about to make a move. To show that we are ready to counter any planned move, I have ordered Brothers Henry and Oliver to make a show of force in the front window. Their show of force consists of sitting on top of the cat tree and showing off their combined 33.5 pounds of tabby fury.

OK. I have to be honest. It’s not entirely accurate to say that there has been increasing chatter about the Long-feared Dog Uprising. The chatter has been about dogs though. More specifically… wiener dogs. Ummmm… yes… the chatter has been coming from Thomas. The little guy has gotten himself all worked up about wiener dogs again, and he’s walking around the house thinking he sees wieners at every turn.

Thomas is all worked up. He thinks wiener dogs are everywhere.

So really, this whole show of force is to try to calm Thomas’s rattled nerves. So far, it seems to be working. I seriously have no idea what this cat’s wiener dog phobia is all about. Frankly, I’m beginning to think he might be a little bit weird.

  1. Weird about wieners?


  2. Definitely a solid show of force.
    Exhausting tension.
    RC suggests a nap before considering further.

  3. Well, if there is a wiener dog contingent to the LFDU, they’re quaking in their short boots now with the Brother’s displaying their combined strength! Thomas, weird? I doubt it! Then again, weird is in the eye of the beholder, right?

  4. Maybe Thomas was attacked by a wiener dog in a previous life…though we find it hard to believe a wiener dog could cause much damage. πŸ˜‰

    We suppose that just because Thomas is paranoid in regard to Wiener Dogs doesn’t mean that Wiener Dogs aren’t out to get him. The increased show of battle readiness can’t hurt anything and who knows, it might stop an invasion of Wiener Dogs. You’ll probably never know just how real the threat might have been.
    Better safe than sorry,

    Perhaps Your Guardians should purchase a nice package of Oscar Meyer Wieners and some buns, fire up the BBQ and show Thomas what a “wiener dog” really is?
