Caturday: No More Twist!

simpkin2
Simpkin returns with a ‘penn’orth of bread, a penn’orth of milk and a penn’orth of sausages. And the all-important penn’orth of cherry-coloured silk.

Is it really Caturday again?

I know I just featured a Beatrix Potter cat a couple of Caturdays ago, but here is another one, called Simpkin.

He is from The Tailor of Gloucester and is the tailor’s cat, and sort of assistant. The tailor sends him out to buy food and thread, but Simpkin’s fondness for mice gets the better of him.

All ends well though, with Simpkin properly repentant.
