Tabitha Twitchit (The Tale of Tom Kitten) Tabitha Twitchit is the shrewd shopkeeper cat and the solicitous mother of the three little kittens, Moppet, Mittens and Tom Kitten, in Beatrix Potter’s children’s series of the early twentieth century. Ever the proud Mama, Tabitha is prone to dressing her children elaborately when company is coming, and admonishing them to walk on their hind legs and stay out of dirt and mischief. For these three little imps, this is an impossible chore. Naturally, they find themselves in all kinds of predicaments in their efforts to stay clean, with hilarious results. Tabitha is not above punishing them, sending them off to their rooms without tea, for instance. When the farm is overrun by rats, Tabitha locks the kittens in a cupboard to keep them out of harm’s way, but of course, Tom Kitten finds a way to get into trouble anyway. All always ends well, though, with Mother Tabitha and her children safe and snug by the fireplace. As there does not seem to be a Mr. Twitchit, it is just as well that Tabitha is a sharp businesswoman as well as a good mother – she runs her shop with an iron fist and never extends credit. When her rival shopkeepers go out of business for that very reason, our Ms. Tabitha meets the demand by increasing her prices. In turn, she can keep her children in the fancy clothes they are so fond of getting dirty. Those little kittens are in good paws, indeed!
