On Guard

Hi everyone, Katie here.

In my continued effort to dazzle, amaze and confuse Glogirly and Gloman, I've incorporated a watchdog routine into my daily repertoire.

I've identified a specific spot on the living room rug, adjacent to the sofa they seem to lay around on all the time, as my designated guard post.

From this spot I have a clear view of all possible points of entry, should an intruder make his/her way into the inner sanctum of the townhouse.

I can sit and stare (I mean guard) for hours. I limit my food and bathroom breaks while on post to emergency situations only.

Glogirly and Gloman believe I am protecting the townhouse from intruder insurgence. Truth be told, I'm just messing with them. Even though I sit motionless staring off into space (I mean guarding) I'm able to take in their entire dialogue. It's better than any show on TV.

"Look, she's guarding us again."
"Does she hear something?"
"No. Do YOU hear anything?"
"I sure wish I knew what she was thinking."
"We can't possibly be THAT smart."
"Why does she always sit in exactly the same spot?"
"Why does she just stare off into space?"
"She's not staring. She's guarding."
"She's not guarding. She's sleeping."
"With her eyes open?"
"She thinks she's protecting us."
"Yeah, right."
Doorbell rings on the TV.
"Where's Katie?"


  1. Well, Guarding and Defending are two entirely different things!

  2. who needs a watch dog when they have you

  3. he he- - who needs a guard dog when you are on duty. You are a mighty brave kitty too - especially when the doorbell rings.

  4. Glogirly, Gloman doesn't believe you are brave but I do. I will do the same way as you. It calls " Invisible Guarding " : ) Human must learn lots of thing about cattitude !

    PS : Thanks to your mom to add me on FB : )

  5. Mom thinks it is a summer thing. It is too hot to curl up on a couch, and much of the time i lie and sleep in the very center of the family room. Maybe it is the coolest spot in the room?

    Great job with the doorbell ringing, Katie.

  6. You're a great guard! Nobuddy said you had to be a greeter too!!!

  7. The parents do not understand all that we see when staring. They do not have cat vision that sees all the little specks. Katie you are doing a great job guarding against danger.

  8. Sheesh sometimes the humans have no idea, we have a perception that they cant see aand you are obviously tuned in to a wave length. Good work.. keep them guessing.. Hugs GJ xx
