I swear, almost every quilter I know has a cat!
My baby only has 3 legs, but he can quilt with the best of them! LOL! I keep a wicker basket of material under my sewing desk and he loves to sleep there. He will occasionally reach out and swipe my material and bat it, but for the most part he lays there and sleeps. He's a very lazy cat, and was like that before his accident.
ETA: He lost his back leg. He never goes outside, since hes' been declawed, but one night after I went to bed, the boys must have accidentally let him out, and the next morning my husband found him on our steps missing his leg. He was hit by the train that goes by our house! He recovered well and is fine now.
Sometimes, I'll go in there and find he's played with my thread on my machine! He'll have it unraveled and knotted up.
When I spread out a quilt on the floor, he comes flying and jumps on it. Never fails.
