And I went to pick her up in the rain
But before I could get to the station in my pickup truck
She got runned over by a damned old train!

Personally, I prefer the "watch cat" over the watch dog.
When your pet tiger here's a noise, it doesn't make any of its own. Just patiently waits. If the burglar breaks in - their might be a muffled scream; some clean-up; and a short term reduction in your feeding bill.
As if that would stop the loverboys from coming, some may not even have owners.
In our case the story ended well. It turned out that the loverboy recently became homeless and our cat felt lonely. She had attacked every cat before and after him, but he was right. She let him in and eventually we had two cats that kept everything else away from the house, including dogs.
