Perhaps you've heard of the terrors undergone by Freddy Widgeon at Matcham Scratchings, the Oxfordshire homestead of Sir Mortimer Prenderby. As you recall, Freddy went there to win Dahlia Prenderby's hand, but was driven from the place by a blight of feline calamities, never to return. But Freddy was not the last suitor to fall for Dahlia Prenderby's charms and be lured into that hellhole - this is the tale of an enterprising lad known as Clarence "Cushy" Davenport, who braved the beasts and went in to win.
Having heard Freddy's sad tale, Cushy established cordial relations with the butler, Biggleswade, as soon as he arrived. He stayed from Monday through Friday, and each day he found another cat in his quarters (including a Siamese, a Persian, a tabby, a calico, and a tortoiseshell cat) - these cats were in various conditions (one was infested with fleas, one was deceased (through natural causes), one was in season for mating, one was sporting a lame paw, and one was working on hoiking up a monster hairball. Two were tomcats, named Aloysius and Ferdinand, the others were females of the species, Buttercup, Cleopatra, and Tibby. But each day Clarence tipped Biggleswade with a different number of pound notes, from one up to a whopping five, to remove the felines from the premises, thus avoiding undue embarrassment.
The butler, Biggleswade, approved heartily, and when Clarence wed Miss Dahlia, he regaled the servant's hall with the story of Clarence's clever conquest of Matcham Scratchings. He mixed up his facts, however, possibly due to mixing port and champagne, and all that he could recall were the following 8 clues.
Can you help out the hapless butler, and determine which cat in what condition and appearance was removed on which day of the week, and how much the butler was tipped to remove the beast?
Note: Do not confuse Tibby and the tabby - they may or may not be the same, but "Tibby" is a proper name, and "tabby cat" is a physical description.
Note also: Er, "in heat" means "in season for mating".
