Brother Henry’s Day Off

People and fur people who like The Leader Otis,

It’s Thomas. As you know, we’ve all been under a lot of stress in recent weeks on account of Leader Otis’s unexplained illness. None of us kitties have been more stressed though than Brother Henry. As The Muscle of the Cult of Otis, Brother Henry is in charge of security for The Leader. Because of this responsibility, Brother Henry has had to be hyper-vigilant while Leader Otis has been under the weather. He has ย been doing so many patrols that he has only been sleeping about 15 hours a day instead of the 20 or so that is normal for a kitty!

In order to support Brother Henry, I decided to volunteer for extra security patrols so he could have a day off. He seemed very thankful for the offer, and immediately headed off to one of the posing benches to relax.

Brother Henry decided to spend his day off relaxing on a posing bench.

I set off on patrol, which mostly consisted of my sniffing at the bottom of the front door to see if I could detect the scent of wiener dogs on the other side. Now, Brother Henry did not specifically say that I should be sniffing at the front door for wiener dogs, but I figured you can never be too careful.

Even though Brother Henry did not specifically instruct me to do so, I thought it was important to sniff for wiener dogs at the front door.

When I checked on Brother Henry later on, I saw how much he had needed this break. He was completely zonked out on the posing bench. He appeared to be all snuggled up to something, and I wondered if he was having some marvelous dream about being wrapped in warm laundry or something.

Brother Henry looked like he was dreaming about being wrapped in warm laundry or something.

Seeing him so comfortable made me feel really good about giving him a break. Perhaps I will do so again sometime soon. Not only will it help to ensure that Brother Henry is well rested and in top form as he keeps The Leader safe, it will help me continue to hone my own security skills to help defend in the event that The Long-feared (Wiener) Dog Uprising at last comes to pass. I shudder at the thought.

  1. Disrupted order is alway stressful. Coast a bit and rest!

  2. 2 cats

    Thomas you are the ideal combination in a cat, handsome and kind hearted.

  3. Aw! It’s so nice of you to give Brother Henry a rest! I hope he was dreaming of warm laundry.. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thomas, what do you have with Weiner dogs?!?

  5. You guys have to deal with Weiner dogs to?!? My sister has one and as much as I love that crazy little dog, he’s making it hard for her to take in the kittens that were born in her yard. But he’s learning to be nice. Dachsunds and Beagles are my favorite dogs ๐Ÿ™‚

    We have a wiener dog on the premises and he adores kitties, although is admittedly somewhat…ahem….enthusiastic…..with his affection. It’s good to see Brother Thomas taking up the slack and allowing Brother Henry some much needed sleep. He’s awfully cute.

  7. I can just hear him purring/snoring in that last picture. Don’t know about where you are, but here it’s been a great week to be a safely confined kitty. With all the rain and clouds, all Priestess Jen and Miss P. want to do is stay inside and let us pet them!

  8. You’re really doing well on your training, aren’t you, Thomas! Or should I say, Junior Agent T! How sweet of you to give Brother Henry a much needed break. He looks exhausted!
    You can never be too vigilant when it comes to the LF(W)DU!

  9. I am sure Brother Henry is exhausted with so little sleep. Good of you to help him out.

  10. That was a nice thing that you did for Brother Henry, Thomas.

  11. Well done Thomas for being brave enough to patrol in the daytime! It’s not so long ago that you would only take the night shift and hid all day, it’s nice to see you settling in ๐Ÿ™‚
