This morning’s patrol was very serious business. It warranted a purple alert due to a turkey gang sighting on the hill. Tabs spotted the ringleader and scared him off, after which point things were pretty uneventful.
A lot of people and cats don’t know this, but purple is the official Tabs the Cat Industries LLC company color, and a purple alert signifies an all-hands-on-deck emergency — something like a hostile turkey takeover or cat corporate espionage.
The last time we had a full-on purple alert was when a kitty modeling competitor (Harris the cat) vandalized the official company catnip plant in the front yard.
Tabs went BALLISTIC.
