This Caturday’s cat is Ginger from Beatrix Potter’s The Tale of Ginger and Pickles.
Ginger and Pickles owned a grocery shop: ‘Ginger was a yellow tom-cat, and Pickles was a terrier.’
The rabbit customers were afraid of Pickles, but the mice … ‘Ginger usually requested Pickles to serve them, because he said it made his mouth water.’
The shop failed because Ginger and Pickles gave unlimited credit. But all ends well with Ginger living in a warren and getting stout.
