After hearing some suspicious chatter in his intelligence network, Brother Henry became suspicious that agents associated with The Long-feared Dog Uprising were up to something. He declared today “Sentinel Sunday” and said that he would sit sentinel duty in the front window until he was sure the danger had passed.
Now, to be completely honest, the “chatter” that Brother Henry heard came from Thomas. You see, I sort of mentioned to Thomas that I thought I heard a pack of crazed wiener dogs barking on the street in front of the house. I didn’t want to freak Thomas out or anything, but I knew if I told him this he would report directly to Brother Henry to tell him that the dogs were up to something. I knew that Brother Henry would then go into security mode and forget about trying to get Mama Cat to like him for a while. Clearly, it worked. Brother H has been in that window for three solid hours now.
So yeah, I feel a little bit bad that Sir Thomas is now going from window to window in the house, looking out and shouting, “Don’t even think about it you crazy wieners! If you get through the sentinel, you shall have a knight with whom you must contend!” But you know what? Mama Cat has been sleeping peacefully on the Tabby Tower all morning, and a little more vigilance might actually be good for Sir Thomas. After all, he must be ready to lead the charge in case of an invasion by the Mongrel Horde. It’s kind of heartening to see the courage he is displaying now, when faced with a pack of crazed wiener dogs… even if they are imaginary.
