Disciples of Otis,
Brother Oliver here. After Thomas heard about Brother Henry’s teeth cleaning at The Bad Place, he got all excited and said he had an idea for the next photo in my Whiskered Gallantry series. Now, as and artist, I usually like to come up with my own ideas for images, but since Thomas has been such a great photo subject I decided I would indulge him this one time. Plus, it really was an intriguing idea. So intriguing, in fact, that I ended up having a difficult time choosing which image I liked best. I finally narrowed it down to two, and I decided that I would include both in my series. Without further ado, I give you Whiskered Gallantry 6-1, Fangs of the Knight!
And I also give you Whiskered Gallantry 6-2, Better View of Fangs of the Knight!
Whoa. I don’t know about you, but I totally got chills looking at these powerful views of Sir Thomas. By the way, if you are new Disciples of Otis, you may wonder why Sir Thomas has only three fangs, or even why he is called Sir Thomas. The explanations can be found in earlier blog posts. Actually, explanations for a LOT of things can be found in earlier blog posts, so I encourage you to explore the more than 1,030 posts in the archives to learn all that you can about The Cult of Otis, and our crusade to ensure that all kitties are happy, healthy, and safely confined.
So Sayeth Brother Oliver

Bravo! Once again, Brother Oliver, your extraordinary talent with the camera has treated us to an amazing sight. Sir Thomas is certainly ferocious with his fangs on display. We think we can hear the knees on the short stubby legs of the Wiener Dog Platoon knocking together at this fearsome sight. Well done, Brother Oliver, very well done!

Thanks M and H! Once again, most of the credit goes to my photo subject. Sir Thomas is a natural when it comes to posing for the camera! 🙂
What is Sir Thomas hissing at? I would hate to be the object of his fury!
The scary thing is, he wasn’t even hissing! He looks much more intimidating when he does! – Brother Oliver
Fangs for those photos, Brother Oliver! (Sorry. My dad loved puns. Apparently it’s an inheritable trait.) I well remember when Thomas lost one of his Fangs of Fury, together with, well, other bits of his anatomy. And it’s a great idea to read all the earlier blog posts; I recommend starting from the beginning. You get wonderful early glimpses of Thomas and Mama Cat, and you get to see how the Cult has evolved.
Thanks Rhiannon! 🙂 – Brother Oliver
Good Lord! With the fur around his head in the second photo, he almost looks like a Cobra ready to strike!
He is cobra-like, Claudia! Wiener dogs beware! 🙂 – Brother Oliver
Tremble Wiener Dogs, Tremble!!! Selleck and His person, Emily.
Yes indeed, Selleck and Emily. 🙂 – Brother Oliver
Ooo! Dogs of all heights and lengths are running for their frightened little lives! That is one fierce knight! Three fangs are more than enough to scare off any attempt at the LF(W)DU!!
Thomas greatly appreciates you saying so, Andrea! 🙂 – Brother Oliver
Oh, I’m scared and I’m a lot bigger than a wiener dog.
Thomas says not to be afraid, Susan. Those fangs are reserved for the dastardly wieners! 🙂 – Brother Oliver
Wow, those are some impressive fangs, Sir Thomas.
I think so too, Island Cats. 🙂 – Brother Oliver
