Whiskered Gallantry 6- Fangs of the Knight

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.

Brother Henry Returns

My Disciples,

We all breathed a collective sigh of relief yesterday when the Guardians left for awhile and came back carrying Brother Henry in the portable kitty jail. He looked a bit out of it, but he apparently survived his ordeal at The Bad Place. Brother Oliver ran over to greet him as soon as the Guardians placed the kitty jail on the ground. Brother Henry said, “Brother Oliver! I am so happy to see you!” Brother Oliver said, “Brother Henry, you kind of smell like two or three different dogs and a handful of frightened cats! What the heck happened to you!?”

Brother Henry returned! Brother Oliver said he smelled like dogs and frightened cats.

Brother Henry is at The Bad Place

My Disciples,

I’m worried about Brother Henry. Oh, in case you are wondering, he’s not at The Bad Place due to his trying to get close to Mama Cat yesterday. That situation ended surprisingly peacefully with not so much as a hiss. Yes, I’m surprised too.

Henry looking strong

This is Brother Henry immediately after finishing his nap with Mama Cat yesterday. Both survived unscathed!

Anyway, despite his lack of Mama Cat related injuries, the Guardians put Brother Henry in the portable kitty jail this morning to take him to The Bad Place. It sounded like he was going to the regular Bad Place, not the specialty Bad Place where we received the bad news about My health. I heard the Guardians saying that Brother H was going to have his teeth cleaned. He was also going to have a fatty cyst removed from his tail. Even though it sounded like neither of those things was too serious, neither sounded like fun to Me, so I am worried about My High Priest.

Otis worried about Henry

Although I don’t think Brother Henry has any serious problems, I am still worried about him.

I know the good people at The Bad Place will take care of Brother Henry, but I also know that even he gets scared when he has to go there. Hopefully, by the time you read this he will be back here in My Domain with shiny, white fangs of fury to show for his ordeal. In the meantime, I think I better see if the Guardians will give Me some chicken treats. I hear those help with stress…

Kitty Close-up #11

My Disciples,

I was going to end My Kitty Close-ups photo series at number ten, but Brother Oliver has been bugging Me for weeks to post one of his photos that he says BELONGS in the Kitty Close-ups Series.  He has been an excellent High Priest and assistant body guard in recent days so I decided that I would grant his wish and post his photo as Kitty Close-up #11.  So, without further ado, here it is…

Brother Oliver's mouth wide open showing his tongue and teeth.

This is the photo that Brother Oliver has been begging Me to include in "Kitty Close-ups".

So there you have it!  I don’t know if Brother Oliver realizes this or not, but I think he might have just set himself up for a visit to The Bad Place to get his teeth cleaned.  He might be unpleasantly surprised once the Guardians see this!
