Mother's little helper

If you don't already follow my good friend Eunice's blog do pop over there as she has posted some of her excellent photos of her recent three day visit to see me. I asked if she'd mind taking some photos of Tilly and she's included some today along with her description of the campsite she stayed on for two nights. She describes Tilly as an adorable bundle of fur. 

When Tilly isn't posing for photographs I thought you might like to see some of her day to day activities which includes helping with household chores. As fast I put clothes into the washing machine Tilly sorts them and decides which garments she'd like to run around the house and garden with. It's usually socks or underwear and she doesn't mind if they're white or coloured. It gives me a daily workout chasing her to get them back :)

  1. Our grandson George will steal clothes from the washing machine and push them out through the cat flap, if the door is closed he likes to push out his parents garden shoes.

    1. That made me laugh. I bet his parents don't get annoyed with him :)

  2. It's good to see Tilly earning her keep by helping with the washing. How would you manage without her? 😂

  3. Oh, that's funny. I can just imagine you running around the garden after her trying to retrieve your unmentionables, haha.

  5. This has just given me a good giggle, I can imagine you chasing Tilly and trying to retrieve various things she's run off with. I love the second photo, she looks so cute - I wonder what other household chores she will decide to help with :) :)

    1. She's very good at dodging me as I try to make a grab for my undies :) I think I should train her to the do the dusting and vacuuming and maybe clean the bathroom for me. You could try training Snowy and Poppie to help you too :)

    1. I like how she chooses the smallish things. It wouldn't be so funny if she was trailing my trousers round the garden :)

  7. PS: I am sure I have read somewhere that laundry detergents can be very toxic to our fur-babes, but you will already know that. Just don't want her trying to lap up the little bit of water which always remains at the bottom of the door seal . . .

    1. I've noticed on the TV advert for those Ariel pod tings they say to always keep out of reach of children so I imagine they would be toxic to dogs too. Next step is to keep her out of the utility room while I'm doing the washing, don't worry Jayne.

  11. Precious!!! I'm with Jayne about toxicity & animals, so please be careful. I use a powder which is all natural made here in Oz by folks who had a child allergic to just about "everything". I've been using it since 1986 & it's great. Take care & hugs.

    1. I do agree you can't be too careful with so many harmful things. To be truthful I hadn't given the detergent a thought as Tilly just steals the dry clothes as I put them in the drum. I intend to keep her out of that room when I'm doing the laundry in future. Glad you are OK and good to hear from you Susan x
