Re: Skimbleshanks: The Railway Cat


In the watches of the night he is always fresh and bright;
Every now and then he has a cup of tea
With perhaps a drop of Scotch while he's keeping on the watch,
Only stopping here and there to catch a flea.

Cute! Such a whimsical little illustration; I'm particularly fond of the wobbly wheels.

"Way to leave room for the rest of us, John."

Yes! Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats! Love the illustration, it fits nicely with Skimbleshanks.

I am not a fan of cat shirts, but this one is so well done. I love that it's whimsical, colorful, and Eliot.

So many nice comments - thanks!

@schlady - Thank you! hehe glad you like the wobbly wheels!

@loridi - I wondered if people familiar would think it fits - thank you!

@lucky1988 - Calling it retro just reminded me I had intended to put some distressing and then forgot! Oops. But thanks!

@elankat - Means more that you like it then, thank you!

@bigcat39 - Thanks!

@lonelypond - =)

Unfortunately, no chance for it printing now though, unless it gets a second chance with an HM. But thanks very much cptgone and frogfreak!
