    Any of you also do this?

    Cat gets all comfy on my project, so I leave him there and do something else instead of dumping/moving him off?

    i do that.

    i've learned that they really just want to lay on whatever i plan on working with so now i have 2 quilts that i never put the binding on and i use them to distract the cats.

    i go in the room and pretend i'm going to work on those quilts, they come and lay all over it and play with the strings and batting, once they are happy on those quilts - i pull out my real project and get to work.

    i also set up a folding chair and draped quilts over it like its a tent and they go underneath it when they want to go to sleep while i'm working.

    I usually realize its time to take a break and play with mine, that she's been watching me work and needs attention of some sort. So yeah when it comes to kitty im a big softy as well. Chris

    Those furry housemates do require a certain amount of attention! They LOVE fabric, and whatever I am interested in is good for them also.

    The only part I don't like is when the felines have furball attacks whilst on MY fabric! :?

    But we try to share the house and live in harmony. :lol:

    Speaking of furball attacks, why do they always have them in the middle of the nite? Loud enuf hacking so it wakes you up, but not enuf so you want to get up. So that you can wonder if you're going to step on it when you head off to the loo?

    When the boys come into my sewing room, they are only permitted on the "guest" chair (DH hasn't noticed that on occasion his butt is fuzzy - lol) or the top of the cabinet. I do not let them anywhere where the needles and thread are. (Cats are very prone to swallowing those items and it is my biggest fear.)

    my white cat was a thread fiend! I had to cover all the machines so he couldn't get at them. Even thought wasn't totally cat proof.

    Bear doesn't seem interested in thread.

    She has 4 quilts of her very own. But Chris's favorite one is always the one I'm currently working on! It's just a "Cat Thing"

    KLue that is a great idea. I need to set out some fake fabric project for them to lie on! LOL. Except there are two of them who want MY attention, to be petted and picked up. I can't imagine how they got so spoiled. Obviously someone is coming in while I'm at work and rottening them!

    I'm always "working" around my cats. Heck, even when I want computer time and there's one in my chair, I'll move the chair and put my sewing chair in so I can have something to sit on. We don't like bothering the prince and princess. lol

    I always give my cats quilt time if they want it. After all, they are the quilt inspectors and I want to keep them happy. :D :D :D

    They're so cute, it really makes you not want to disturb them!
