Whiskered Gallantry #3- Battle Cry of the Knight

Disciples of Otis,

Brother Oliver here. I am excited to bring you the third image in my Whiskered Gallantry photo series. For today’s image, I asked Sir Thomas to dig deep and show me his true inner power. I told him to imagine that the Long-feared Dog Uprising had come to pass, and that he was leading a cattalion of 1,200 kitties into battle against the overwhelming might of the mongrel horde. I said that the only thing that could rally the troops and ensure victory would be if he could muster up a mighty battle cry; a cry that would embolden all felines, and strike terror in the heart of any dog within earshot (which would actually be quite a lot of dogs since they have such excellent hearing.) I saw Thomas take in a deep breath, and then he let forth a cry that seemed to shake the very foundations of the earth. I did my best to capture that sound in an image. Here it is.

Now, as awe-inspiring as Thomas’s battle cry was, I wondered if maybe he had been holding back, just a little. So I decided to find out. I said, “OK Thomas. Now, imagine the same scene again… you are leading 1,200 kitties… you need to inspire them… but this time you look across the battlefield and you see the dog who is leading The Mongrel Horde. Thomas… it’s a wiener dog.”

His response was immediate, and although I am not a dog, even I was terrified.

That cry is still ringing in my ears. Woe be to any dog who dares stand against Sir Thomas. Especially, if it is a wiener dog.

So Sayeth Brother Oliver

    Wonderful photos of Sir Thomas. If we were Weiner Dogs we would be terrified. We like the claw showing in the second picture. Bandit, Selleck, And Their Person, Emily.

    Hmmm, this may explain our resident weiner dog’s sudden urge to hide behind my knees while I was lying on the couch earlier! Even here, across the country, he heard that terrifying cry.

    Sir Thomas, your battle cry has wiener dog’s short little legs shaking. Thank you for sharing your wonderful photos with us, Brother Oliver. You are an awesome talent.

  7. Oliver, I must admit, when you set out to become the world’s greatest kitty photographer, I was dubious. After all: no thumbs. But your photos just get better & better. As pezcita said, you’ve shown us another side of Tommy Two-Toes, or should that be Tommy One-Fang? Well done!

  8. Ok, Thomas no longer needs to be afraid of… I mean, be concerned about wiener dogs! He has struck fear into the low to the ground hearts of everyone of them just posing for that picture! yow! They’re not gonna mess with him!

  9. Whoa. That’s fierce! Sir Thomas is a force to be reckoned with. Dogs beware – you have been warned!

  10. Sir Thomas what a stunning picture…Whiskers Wired for Weiner War!
    Have a great day and hugs Fozziemum x

  11. Whoa! Look at the toofies! Look at the whiskers! He’s like a horde of bagpipers comin’ over the mountain to do battle.
