    Our 2 year old cat Leo is at his happiest when we are doing jobs or tasks in the house he loves to be there in the middle of what ever we are doing.... decorating seems to be his task to "help" with.

    Any one else have a cat who loves a job?

    Mine love the general household chores - well apart from hoovering :Nailbiting - but they are kept firmly out of the way when decorating. My lot are just far too nosey and I would end up with paw prints of paint every where :eek: They have been known to assist the heating engineer who comes to service the boiler - his toolbox obviously needs inspecting :D

    Ohh isn't he gorgeous!!! I love helper cats! Being Siamese and very nosey, Parsnip likes to help with everything apart from hoovering. Laundry is his particular favourite - he jumps on whatever I am folding up then waa-waas till I pick him up! He doesn't approve of workmen either.
    Flint on the other hand loves to help with the hoovering - he says if I just Hoover him it means the hair won't get on the sofa! He throws himself in front of me almost yelling 'do me do me!!' Also, he loves visitors. The BT man almost took him home as Flint has got in his toolbox and having fiddled with the tools had settled down to supervise! Visitors are now searched on leaving!

    We love having a helper cat…. Not that we have a choice if you shut him out he cries at the door until you let him in lol.

    Leo is the opposite he will do anything to try and get to a work man in the house it’s a full time job trying to supervise him and keep him out of the way whilst they work and then there is the Asda delivery man he likes to see him off once the shopping has been delivered.

    Not too sure what breed his is he was advertised as a British longhair but I think he’s a mixture of a few breeds but obviously has nosy cat traits….

    Not at all.... feel free to save it.

    Have you tried a pet remedy plug in? we used one to help Leo get over some urinary problems and it really helped to relax him as soon as we plugged it in…. it does smell a bit at first though.

    Some how me manages to keep his tail paint free hes a very careful cat around things like that, although he has had to have his paws washed a couple of times as a precaution.

    Your Leo is gorgeous!
    Our Leo used to love helping with watering the outdoor plants as he loved playing with water. He was fascinated with washing up when he was a kitten!
    Our cat Rossi loved helping me change the beds and would leap out at me over the sheets! His sister Mimi just wanted to help with everything!

    Send him my way please, I need some decorating doing!

    I have helper cats. They do love to help with any chores. They particularly like to help sort out the kitchen cupboards.

    I have a decorator too! Indie loves to help, has to be involved with everything. Milo can't be bothered, but will come and inspect everything thoroughly when it's done.

    Very agile! Leo is not in any way agile nor is he a jumper or climber, for a cat i think hes rather clumsy... looks like Indie can do a better job of inspecting than my cat!
