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 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.
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.
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.
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.
