An Empty Food Dish

Dave prefers to be able to feed himself freely. Though he is nostalgic for his wild younger days on the mean streets of Iowa, he does not miss having to track down each meal. You can imagine Dave's heightened concern during the times when his food bowls are devoid of food. They might be empty because it is not meal time, or because they are being cleaned, but whatever the reason, Dave is uncomfortable if they are empty. 

This is a good example of a DAFECON 3 situation.

DAFECON 1 means nuclear war is imminent. It is a time for maximum readiness. It is time to protect the homeland from an impending threat.

Here is what Dave might look like during a DAFECON 1 scenario.

Or he might look like this.

DAFECON 2 is a serious situation. Danger is imminent. An unusual threat has imposed itself upon Dave's home. The next step is an all-out war.

Here is an example of a DAFECON 2 situation.

Here is another. This one portrays one of the drawbacks of raising the alert level to DAFECON 2 or even higher. Sometimes there is collateral damage. It's just what happens when you are on your toes prepared for a nuclear conflict. Unfortunately, Jack was the innocent bystander who was targeted in this situation.

DAFECON 3 represents an increase in force readiness above that required for normal readiness. It is not a time for fooling around. Nor is it a time to panic or overreact. Most of the CSI: Dave series catalogue DAFECON 3 situations.

Here is an example of a DAFECON 3 situation.

DAFECON 4 is the second lowest state of readiness, characterized by an increased intelligence watch and strengthened security measures. While not a terribly concerning state for Dave, it is certainly not appropriate to take a nap during a DAFECON 4 period.

Here is an example of a DAFECON 4 situation.

DAFECON 5 is Dave's lowest state of readiness. He anticipates no threats in the near future. He is still ready to spring into action quickly, but this is a time for napping, eating, thinking deeply, and other such pursuits.

Here is one example of Dave during a DAFECON 5 period.

Here is another.

Dave's Favorite Military Alert System

Dave, a worldly cat, has thoughts on many subjects, ranging from the most lighthearted to the most serious. One serious topic that Dave ponders with great concern is military readiness. This is a serious matter for Dave not only because of the potential ramifications of global conflict, but also because Dave cares very much about the safety of his own home. He considers it his gravest responsibility to protect his home from any potential threats.

His preferred system of military alertness is DAFECON.

What Has Dave Gotten Himself Into Here?

Dave woke up from a nap today in quite a state, and he had no idea how he found himself thus.

Dave could make neither heads nor tails of his situation, so he thought it best to arise from his slumber and go eat some food.
