Cats on Tuesday... In which an interloping cat, er, interlopes...

Hello, who's this?  Where are the usual suspects that appear on a Tuesday?  (They're obviously slacking this week). This, dear reader, is Ellie.  She is the rather lovely little cat who works at Ashby Parva Garden Centre as head of customer relations and quality control, and whilst my four were sleeping their heads off at the weekend, she was hard at work amidst the bulbs.

Here she is testing the strength of the bulbs by standing on them...
(whilst possibly singing 'Tipoe, through the tulips...')

Isn't she pretty? (she's also rather dainty - only about the size of Pepper
although Pepper feels heavier (please don't tell her I said that!).


This is her giving advice on bulbs for Autumn planting to David...

... and testing the bulb he chose for freshness with her head



Before settling down for a wash and a well-earned rest...

and finally...
just for Penny, 
a photo of her favourite boy 
showing what he thinks of any upstart
black and white cat infiltrating his
corner of the web...

Wow ! I have never seen such a hard working cat in a garden center ! Really special and especially cute, lol !

She is very pretty and her markings are beautiful. Lovely green eyes, too - must be the influence of all those growing green things around her.

Ellie would be great for the Society of Feline Gardeners Thursday Gardening posts! She's obviously very knowledgeable--not just a beautiful face! :-)

Ellie is obviously dedicated to her job. Her black patch under her mouth and her long tail with long hair are just like Scaredy Cat's. Very cute story today, despite what Charlie thinks.

Barbara said...

Forgot to say I love your new header.

She is a pretty puss and obviously enjoys her work.

WE think it's fantastic to have cats in a business. It gets the customers inside the business.

She is a cutie pie.

I love your comment that she's tip toeing thru the tulips!

Barbara said...

I think they should pay her more now that she has world wide fame ;O)

Barbara - thank you, I'd been meaning to change the header for ages as it still has a Christmas tree in the background of one of the photos, LOL! Any news on the cats?

Phew! A Cats on Tuesday post without that beautiful boy? Unthinkable! And yet, I thought that was going to be the case! Thank you for retrieving the situation with your last photo... (Wipes sweat off brow...)

Your new header is very classy! And, while not, of course, quite as gorgeous as Charlie, Ellie is very sweet and, possibly, harder working? She obviously takes her duties very seriously! I love the expression on David's face as she quality-controls his purchase.

I, too, enjoyed the 'Tiptoe through the Tulips' reference. And at the risk of sounding mushy, I have to say that your posts always warm my heart with their mixture of very funny text and wonderful photos, especially when they're of cats! :o)

Ellie is a good worker! I hope she gets lots and lots of treats.

Didn't get any response from the organization re what to do about Scaredy Cat, Cookie, Molly, Buster and Miss Emily so they are still hanging around and Dave says I absolutely have to stop feeding them. We're out of canned food now and getting low on dry. Strangely enough, I've become Scaredy's best friend now. I'm very upset about the whole thing and can't imagine what I'll do when the food runs out.
