A modern play on my (very old) concept of a watch cat, by which I meant a pet Tiger. A + for you.
One puts a "beware of the cat" sign on the door.
Now if one has a watch dog, the damn things bark for all sorts of reasons throughout the night. A nuisance for oneself and one's neighbors. A watch cat doesn't make noises every time someone or something comes within his perceived territory. He waits quietly.
Burglar comes in? A short shriek. A bit of a mess to clean up. No need to by any cat-chow for a few days. One might even take to leaving apparent valuable where they can be glimpsed from the street.
Nice idea in principal but maybe not practical in reality. I generally use the code I write a lot, but not the end product. I've worked on sites for holiday companies, insurance companies, printer companies, sweet companies, building companies...in my entire career I think there has been one website I have worked on that I would actually use as an end user. Not because they're bad products, just because I am not the intended consumer.
