Can I help?

[Editor: This is Todd, who despite the tuxedo enjoys plumbing, electrical work, carpentry, and, especially, painting. He has been helping me in the rehab of his new home.]

ha! type “top hat chimney sweep” into your search bar….

I suppose he’s been about as much “help” as The Mighty Fang is when I’m doing stuff here in the house. Though TMF has been a *little* less underfoot since being accidentally stepped on a few times…

Todd is a juvenile with a purr like a Harley, but yes, he has been as much help as TMF. He has managed not to get any paint on himself, something that Ringo can’t say before I banned her from the project.

In Europe chimney sweeps still dress in the frock coat and wear a top hat, Hipparchia. It is the uniform of masters in their guild.

Ah what a handsome fellow. Glad to see a Tux cat in fine fetyle.

Poor Ted died in the night

my condolences, jams.

It’s just struck me. As Ted departed Todd arrived. I hope that Todd will be as much a character as Ted was!

RIP Ted and Long Live TODD

(I have been blown here from Jams’ place in response to his post about Todd today)

and that is one long tail on Todd

Yes, I’d say that is one kittie that better stay away from rocking chairs! :lol:

He is a fine looking fellow though. He looks mighty curious! Not a good character trait for a cat… You know what they say! Still, he seems pretty smart to me (about 3 times as smart as the avg Rethug, maybe 4!) Be interesting to see what kinds of trouble he get’s into over time Bryan! ;) :D

Sorry to hear about Ted jams! :(

Ted was really a bolt out of the blue, Jams, I’m really saddened by the loss of such a character, evil though he was.

Welcome aboard, Don. Long tails are a common trait down here. Several of my cats have them, so it is present in the local cat population.

It’s not just rocking chairs, Kryten – Ringo can catch her tail when she is in one of her cat fits, and then she bites it, which is a bit noisy. I had to locate Todd before I used my power miter saw, because he does swish that tail around.

Nice looking kitty. He’s lucky he didn’t get any paint on him. It would be a shame to mess up that shiny fur. Cats are really funny when they have to see what you’re doing. They don’t care if they get in the way.

He is curious, and a bit uncertain about the change in ‘home’, but he has been amazingly good about not rubbing against the painted door frames, better than Ringo who didn’t appreciate having her tail washed after ‘helping’ me paint doors. ;)
