Since we moved to our new apartment, there has been lots for a curious and very helpful kitty to do. As you can see, my eyes are always very wide open to make sure I don't miss any opportunities to be of great help!
If you are going to be any help, it's important to know exactly what tools you have and where to find them. That way when Mom or Dad says "Where did that screwdriver go?" or "I need the hammer", you can respond quickly and efficiently.
Also, Mom and Dad lead very busy lives, so it's up to me to make regular inspections. We did not have this kind of magical machine in our last apartment. It requires a lot of inspections, though I have learned that it is better to go in for a closer look after it has cleaned the dishes. If you go in before and sit like I am in this picture, you are likely to get wet when Mom puts the rinsed dishes in. However, I forget that lesson on a regular basis and only remember after it's too late.
