Read my considered thoughts and opinions.
I am continuing the blog of Diamond, cat sage and haiku poet.

Yesterday I was quietly taking Lynettea for a walk on the path at the side of our house. She had sat down on the edge of the front porch for a rest, after we had been into the street so she could look at the gazanias and tell me how well they were flowering and gaze around as usual (why do they do that) and I was just standing quietly, when I saw it!

So I ran quickly down the side of the house and I didn't know Lynettea could still run so fast. She was quick at coming up behind me and yelling stop Diamond, don't get into a fight with a cat.
But it jumped on top of the fence. So I let it go. It had been sufficiently warned. And Lynettea picked me up and gave me a cuddle and called me her Protector.

Then we went in and I had some fresh crispies for my dinner straight away. She doesn't like me to get into a fight and I don't. But I have to protect my place from intruders, even if there are a lot of rough kitties living round here.

I lost a claw and got a scratch right under my jaw last time I got into a fight with a cat. My paw still bleeds a bit from time to time. I hope you don't get hurt in your fights.

Great job, Diamond! Yes, it's true ... you have to protect your home and Lynettea from those pesky intruders.

Good job Diamond. You were right in protecting your mom but don't get into fights either - it will worry her.

You absolutely must protect your hoomins and your property from strangers! Very impawtant werk.

You are good to be such a protector!

Humans sometimes don't realize how important it is to keep intruders away! I'm glad you take your job as protector seriously, Diamond.

Excellent job at springing into action! A kitteh has to prtect his territory from Evil Introoders.

In my case, I managed to repel the Human's house guest this weekend!

You are a brave boy Diamond! I'm sure Lynettea feels safer because of you.

Good one Diamond. We have to protect our turf, even if it is just scaring other kitties away so they know who is boss!
I have to do that a lot. Even with my buddies... because every so often they get a bit too close to my special kitty door and no other kitty other than me gets to go inside!

I've added you to my Buddies page so it will be easy for me to follow you (in a non creepy sense!). You mentioned you want to follow my blog. To do that just go to and go to the bottom of the page to sign up.

Cat, we can't get to your blog. The profile that you post covers the web site when we look.
