Mattie Paints the House!

Mattie Mae is a rescue cat, known as an American Polydactyl or a Hemingway Cat due to her paws resembling baseball mitts. She is a curious cat who is always underfoot, wanting to be a part of everything and "help.” One summer I had my house painted. The painter walked away for 30 seconds. Meanwhile, Mattie Mae climbed the 8-foot ladder to get the caulk and “help.” The funny part is the painter said, “She’ll be on the ladder by the time I get back.“ True to form, she was; a true Kodak Moment.”
