    I was sewing one day and stopped to adjust some things and all of sudden my sewing machine started sewing all by itself. I was freaking out until I looked down under the machine and found the cat had decided that would be an excellent place to take a nap, right on the foot pedal.

    I'm sorry but I just have to say, a dog is smart enough to know better than to pull pins with his/her teeth.

    Awe, I wish I had a kitty! Can't have one where I'm living!
    If a woman's work is never done....why start?

    Please don't let your kitty play with thread. My friend had a beautiful Himalayan kitty that was playing with a spool of thread. She unwound it and managed to swallow a lot of thread. The cat wouldn't eat and she started vomitting. By the time they got her to the vet it was too late to save her. The thread wrapped around her intestines and even though the vet did surgery, it was too late to save the kitty. Cats should never be allowed to play with thread.

When I come in the room and want to sew, I have to love him for about 10 minutes and then take him to his bed. Some days he doesn't like it and will come over and bat at me over and over, wanting me to get out of his chair. I find that if I leave bobbins on the desk, he will knock them all over the room and the thread is quite a mess. I find the only thing I can do is actually lock him out of the room when I sew. And sometimes he throws a fit and hits the door over and over. Shadow likes to walk everywhere he wants to go, which is a problem, sometimes I worry about the hot iron. But I adore this silly cat.
    Andy, my ragdoll kitty, likes to sleep in my sewing chair. He jumps up and tries to squeeze in between me and the back of the chair. I have tried putting him back down on the floor, but he just jumps back up. I usually just move forward a little and let him snuggle in. He just wants to be close. lol
