The original Mr Tiddles arrived on the 21st Sektober 1635 and was in residence for twenty-three years, in that time accounting for 1,137 rats, 1,563 mice and voles, 212 small birds, and one unfortunate junior postman.

Post Office Regulations demand that all kills made by Mr Tiddles are faithfully recorded, by date, time, and species, in the CatLog. This included Junior postman Trinder.
