Default My little "helper"...

My cat, Tali was always underfoot while I was brewing until I figured out that as long as she had a comfy place to sit and watch me brew, she'd leave me alone.

Cute shot! I have several "helpers" on brewday, a bunch of hummingbirds.

My brewing is done in the backyard, where we've got three feeders up. The entire time I'm out there, the hummingbirds angrily strafe me, nattering their bird obscenities. Little ingrates.

I have to put up a barricade between the living room and kitchen when I'm transferring wort, racking or bottling. Otherwise my dog tries to stick his nose in it and try to steal a sample.

I'm waiting for the second pic, where kitteh jumps up onto the cutting board to peer into the wort.

She actually stays put as long as she is comfy. Here she is in my studio:

I can jam with my friends unmolested as long as she gets to bogart the comfy chair:

Off topic but... Carbon111, is your avitar Zaphod Beeblebrox? I read the Hitchiker Guide books when I was a kid and that just poped into my mind.

Yes! From the BBC mini series in the 1980s.

Very funny stuff!

It's weird but jkarp's avatar up above is also from HGTTG.
