Becky, the dust detector


Becky is helping me spot places I should clean! Here you can see her with a dustcloth she has dragged under my bed and back out. It's full of dust, which shamefully states that I haven't vacuumed properly for at least three weeks. This kitty also has a tendency to climb into small, dark corners and come out looking so dusty I feel I simply must grab a mop and start cleaning all those forgotten spots.
I think I've got a great little household helper here ;o)

aww, your cat is so cute. this post is funny, "little helper". I love animals every once in awhile they put a smile on ones face.

This is SO funny, Anna....especially because I can relate! Our cat, Tommy, will do the same thing. He comes out from behind a piece of furniture, dust clinging to his fur & a cobweb dangling from his whiskers. It's funny, but a good reminder that the next time I clean I need to be a bit more diligent!! (o:

What a great little helper!! And her being black certainly helps even more. If she were gray or some other light color you might not be able to see the dust on her when she would get it on her. I miss having a kitty.

I pray your have a wonderful Christmas and enjoy your day with your family!!

Oh . . . I hope I can have a nice little kitty someday, too. What a good helper! Growing up, I had one who would flick an ear whenever I played a wrong note on my violin, even if she was asleep!

Natalie,

She's about 5 months old now.

Sis. Julie,

I hope your holiday season is pleasant and joyful. Orthodox Jews normally don't celebrate Christmas, though.

If only our Abby (also a black cat) would be so diligent in helping with housework as your Becky ... sigh.

Anna (and other observant Jewish women out there): What is the right thing to say if you have co-workers, neighbors, etc. who are Orthodox Jews right before Christmas. Here in the U.S. (and I'm sure in the U.K., Canada, and much of the world) Christmas is a day off work for most people. I just started a new job in IT and one of the software developers is an Orthodox Jew. Friday I just said have a nice weekend when I left. And he wasn't at work at all today. What should I have said if he had been at work today?

Thanks,

Sue

What a cute kitty! I wish my cat were so helpful!

Blessings to you and yours.

Sue,

You don't have to say anything at all to Orthodox Jews before Christmas. Maybe if you know a Jewish co-worker is going to have a vacation too, you can wish them to have a good time or something. :)

Anna,

That is CUTE! Your cat is cute too. I love cats, and I have two of them. I adopted the mother who was a stray over 12 years ago; my goodness, has it been THAT long?! She had two children a year later; one of them died last year. That leaves Mama cat and her one surviving Kiddy cat. Kiddy cat likes to chase bugs & mice, and she helps keep my apartment more or less pest free... :)
