    Sassafras (my cat) has her own cushion beneath the sewing cabinet table; she also has her own window sill cushioned platform. She's very good at keeping to her designated areas.

    I have basenjis, 5 now, the dog for people who like cats, and though they're allowed in the sewing room, it usually holds no fascination to them. From the time we were remodeling the room, we treated it like every other room in the house, meaning the door was left open, and they weren't chased out of there. Now that it's a sewing room, they don't care, because it's never been off limits.

    I remember seeing on the web, a sewing room that they had actually built a lower cabinet area that had a dog crate! Darn if I can find it though, but when I googled, I came up with this site:

    They look nice,but my dogs would just chew them up, thinking mom got them a new toy!

    My two little dogs do this or lay on pillows close to my sewing chair. They just like to be close to me. They don't bother anything.

    My kitty either sleeps in the sewing machine chair or lays up in the window. When she was younger, I had to keep her out because every time the machine was running, she was grabbing the thread away!

    My two boys sleep in my sisters appt. where they have a doggie door to go out and the poodle sleeps in his chair and the chihua/terrier has his crate he sleeps in. The door is always closed to the sewing rooms unless I am there. When I am there Chihua/terrier sleeps on a pillow in the sewing room. The poodle still lays in his chair and just comes to check on us from time to time. He was a rescue and I think someone was not very good to him. His chair is sort of his safe place

    I sew in my bedroom, which is pretty much Grand Central Station for the dog and cats. Harvey's a Golden Retriever and just needs to be around people, so he's usually flopped on the floor by my rat cage. The cats take turns lounging on the bed and giving me baleful Looks for disturbing their slumber.
