Wordless Wednesday – Watch Cat

Tsunami - Watch Cat

Welcome To Wordless Wednesday At Create With Joy!

Quote Of The Day
If you would know what a cat is thinking about,
You must hold its paw in your hand for a long time.

Fun Facts About Maine Coons

Maine Coons are highly intelligent cats who frequently
Assume the role of guardian and watch cat within their families.

Over the years, each of my Maine Coons has “protected” me
While I slept, then looked to me to return the favor!

Legend even trills and reaches his paw out for me during his catnaps
To make sure I have not abandoned my station!

When I am home alone, my cats frequently position themselves
In places where they can keep an eye on all of the hallways and entryways.
Sometimes they lie side by side, each facing a different direction!
Tsunami frequently lies in front of the entryway door,
Just like a guard cat!

Both cats know and expect us to abide by regular schedules.
In today’s photo, Tsunami has been patiently waiting for –
And is now overseeing his dad’s arrival home!

    You are lucky to have such a vigilant companion!

  4. I could have used a guard kitty this week…see my WW post!!

  5. I just can’t handle a cat as a “watch cat” They tend to see things we don’t and imagine creatures are chasing them!

    Cool facts. Sounds like you have a couple great guard kitties! My Cougar has a fixed butt groove in my sofa from where she sits waiting for me and my hubby to come home.

    Too cute! Our one cat is obsessed with sitting in the front window.

      It’s funny, Crys – my cats will hang out with me at various places throughout the day,
      And there are times they will hang out in the windows for their own pleasure –
      But, they definitely have a built in alarm that tells them when a human is expected to arrive home
      And they will stop whatever they are going to do to watch for their arrival!

  14. Karly says:

    Aww, that is so cute! Mittens will do the same thing with me and I love it!

      Yes, it’s really cool to see your pet guardians greet you at the windows!
      I had one that we could actually hear yowling down the hallway of a previous apt we lived in as we approached!
      I wonder what the neighbors thought…

    That’s so cool that your cat knows when you are coming home!

      Yes, we get in “trouble” when we are out too late (by the cats standards!)

      How many of you have ever gotten a “scolding” from your pet?

  16. Amber says:

    Pretty cat! Looks very focused.

    You went with cats, today I went with dogs. Who are more interested in sleeping than looking out windows. Hmm…

    I miss having a kitty. Mine cat died four years ago this Thanksgiving.

  28. Dinah says:

    I love cats! We desperately need one now too bc we just found out we have a rat that likes to visit -ewwww…thanks for sharing your pics, your cat is beautiful:)

  29. June says:

    They are so majestic. I think if I had one in my family I would not get anything done all day!

  30. Kate says:

    That’s a Great shot Ramona. He looks really pensive. I love when they wait for people to come home. They certainly know the routine.

      Thanks Kate! Tsunami is very attuned to his environment.
      Today he was napping and we tested out a new blood pressure monitor – a fairly quiet one at that.
      The moment we pressed the on button, he jumped up and had his neck stretched like a giraffe to peer over his cat post to see what new “sound” was!

  31. Sarah says:

    Cats are such funny creatures of habit 🙂 We have a cat each – they tend to gravitate towards one of us over the other!

    Thanks for linking up!

    Watch cats are nice! Our watch cats stays in the window until Humphrey tries to share the small window sill. How have you been?

    That is too sweet! I can just imagine them lying there looking like guardian lions. A majestic site, I’m sure.

    I know sometimes Alice will growl when someone knocks on the door. 😀
