Here we see Maxwell the Cat hard at work inspecting a bathtub full of water for safety. One of Max’s chief duties in the home is keeping an eye on tubs of water, in which humans, helpless creatures (helpless and hapless; helpless and hapless and hopeless, even) are otherwise prone to submerge themselves. The poor blighters.
But at the end of a long day, Sir Max retires in his basement bungalow, where he has been known to enjoy a gentlemanly dollop of catnip, spill his basket of toys all over the carpet, and spread out amongst them, displaying his gloriousness for all to see.
Work hard, play hard.
