Imgur user ktlljhnsn – also known as Katie – spent three years attempting to win over a very important member of her community. He is the self-appointed head of the local Neighborhood Watch and he takes his job very seriously.

His name is Minkus, and each day he perches his massive black and white body atop his owners’ stoop, surveying the world around him.

Katie began referring to her neighbors’ cat as Minkus before she learned the “lackluster” monicker given to him by his owners. Even though she now knows his true name, she continues to refer to him as Minkus, because, well, does this guy look like a “Fluffy” to you??

Now that Katie has earned the longhaired cutie’s hard-won affections, Minkus makes it a point to hop down from his stoop and greet her. Check out his epic purr!

He may look pretty cuddly with that bubblegum nose and luxurious whiskers, but when it comes to protecting his community, Minkus is all business!

In fact, he has a message for all the sidewalk-pooping pups, trash-picking racoons, and littering humans out there:

“Not in my neighborhood, meow!”

So before you pass by Minkus’ stoop, remember: Neighborhood Watch Cat sees all!
