    They are adorable! Wonderful helpers and supervisors!
    My beautiful big Orange boy (22lb!) passed away last summer and I miss him!
    I still have another boy and find myself being as quiet as possible when I am quilting so that he does not hear and come and help! lol

    Carmello is beautiful. I think we have his brother. I have a big
    cat that is now the boss around here. Neither of our cats come
    into my sewing room . My female one does try to get onto my
    lap when I'm had stitching. Lucky has learnt to look first before
    she jumps up.

    I love cats. They are so independant. And our Chuck is so
    bossy and demands his treats and a hand to pet him.

    I have 3 and the big boy will always be in the middle.
    I can't get mad either, just smile.

    I had a kitten that used to jump up on top of tables, mostly for food, but the instant she did that I put her down...it was a test of wills, but eventually she got the message and never did it as an adult cat. If your cat is doing this now, she probably won't change looking at her age. I'd close the door...or I don't iknow if the constant putting her down trick will work???? Maybe she just needs some snuggling and then put her down. You have a real problem with her or what?

    Oh my God, I had a female tabby just like him, she was 16 pounds of love and affection. She died of liver failure in 2004 and I still miss her. She slept with me everynight holding my hand. Gosh we love them too much. Your boy is just sooooo adorable

    I love how they think that they should be in the middle of any operation. Mine does this too....drives me crazy, but 1 look at the cute face and I just can't get mad. Its trying some days though!

    I agree Susan! How can we resist our kitties (even when laying smack dab on top of what we're working on) when all they want is to love us! :D This is my life too, and I wouldn't trade it for anything!! :D

    I have learned to be a very neat stitcher. I have drawers next to my machine. The only items on the table are my scissors. I have 9 cats and they follow me where ever I go. They will rob me blind if I leave anything out and goes to some mysterious hiding place in the house.

    I agree. I read a sad tale one quilter wrote about the loss of her cat to septicemia caused by ingested thread constricting its bowel. My younger cat would definitely eat thread and possibly needles and pins, and will play with anything, so they're not allowed in the sewing room, though I'd really like having them with me all the time. I do hand sewing in another room with the cats around, but keep anything that isn't in my hand inside a sealed plastic container.

    Yes, this is so true!! Keep them out of that stuff!
    I was cutting on the kitchen table, no pins or thread or anything around.

    Oh, Sue, your marmalade tom is an exact twin to my late but beloved Zeus!!!!! He was one smart cat and extremely lovey with purrs, hugs and rubs. I do miss him so. I LOVE your little Sonia...how beautiful she is! I'll best she is fond of dark colors to nap on!

    You might try making him his own blankie. If it smells like you ( like your quilting fabric does) he may decide that's a good place to settle. Both cats are darlings

    Carrieanne, I wish I could get them to do ANYTHING other than eat, look out the windows, use the boxes and generally just mooch off us!! Hahaha
    When I get out the vacuum cleaner they look at me like "Why?" Well, maybe just a bit of cat hair??? hahahaha
    Thanks for all the comments. They crack me up :D:D:D

    Aww, thank you! Your beloved Zeus sounds just like Carmello! He's such a loverboy !
    My DH did a very dumb thing- we have 2 white cats and he bought a BLACK coat! He regrets it so much lol
