One of my Guard Cats - my favourite, brilliant white queen feline with a blue & a green eye - has no problem mustering courage when she feels threatened. Frightening actually & quite a formidable animal when provoked! I'm always careful not to pi$$ her off, ha!

To her detriment, she doesn't back down from anything. Unfortunately, that may be her downfall some day. Must be the 'Siamese' lineage in her...

Becoming good friends with your neighbors -- if you aren't already -- should be at or near the top of your list. There's no substitute for concerned human eyes.

I just installed Simplisafe in or home based on the fact that we had someone attempt entry in a rear window when were away. The all wireless system is very easy to install, has great reviews, and with packages from 14.99 to 24.99 with dispatch service, text and smart phone app, makes it a great deal. Also, comes with smoke, freeze, and water detectors. Also uses mobile network so thief can cut the phone line and it won't matter, sherrif already in route to taz the mofo.

Despite the presence of alarm systems and measures taken to strengthen means of entry, criminals do enter homes even when the occupants are present. Ability to use deadly force if necessary to protect ones self or ones family should be given full consideration.

I agree. Nobody that knows me enters my home without ample notice.

Its interesting, a rep for our security system happened to stop by this evening.
We're gonna get some new stickers.

Is that legal advice, John smile?

Thou shalt not kill, unless someone's about to make off with your material possessions and you done tol' them once not to.

We'll let the moment determine the severity of their error.

You would be surprised what concerned neighbours might miss. My ex's parents missed a break in next door while watching TV in their living room. The thieves went through the front door with a sledge hammer and nobody heard or saw a thing.
