Jake and Bathsheba

A blog by two cats who used to live in the same house in Northern Virginia. Unfortunately, they are both no longer with us.

Man Cat Monday - Sentry Duty

Sometimes being a Man Cat means you have to shun the photographer because you have manly work to do.

Here I am on Saturday, out in the cold wind, performing sentry duty in the garden. Man cats have to pretend they don't feel the cold as they keep the world safe.

It was a good thing I was out there because a grey tabby cat new to the neighborhood came waltzing into my domain. Well, I quickly showed him who was master of THIS domain, and I chased him around the shed a couple of times. Mom wasn't quick enough with her camera because I was lightning fast.

Here he is giving me one last look as he beats a hasty retreat. I think he learned that he can't mess with Big Man Jake.

Just to ensure that he didn't return, I took up duty outside of the deck rail. The intruder did not return. I think we know who the big man cat is.

That was very important work you are doing. Good for you for protecting your yard. I get really upset when neighborhood kitties come through my yard, but Mom won't let me do anything about it. I need a mancat around!

Jake, that is very very important work you are doing. And it's a good thing you were on duty so you could chase that cat away before he could cause any trouble. That intruder was smart not to return.
