    My cat likes to lay down for a bath and a nap in front of my sewing machine every evening while I try to sew. When I move him he insists on having his paw on one of my hands. He is really sweet and he is our baby. Very friendly and playful.

    Mine scares me when I am using the rotary cutter...always afraid I'm going to make a "bob tail" out of him.

Maybe she just needs some snuggling and then put her down. You have a real problem with her or what?
    She gets tons of snuggles, in fact I rub her so much I'm surprised she isn't bald lol
    I'd have to put fabric on the ceiling to keep the cats away.
    I've accepted that fact :mrgreen:

    Doesn't help- I've done that :D

    Yes, it's so hard to let them go. But the joy they bring us is worth it. I've had pets my whole life. The good times far outweigh the bad :)

    Carmello's mother, Katie, is only 7 pounds, so yours must be a pipsqueak! Katie sure is :D

A friend of mine took in the Mom when she was a stray and she had 6 kittens - three black long hair, and three short haired tabby. Not only do they look totally different, but they have independent personalities. The black one, Molly, is all fluff and weighs 5.7 lbs. Sally, the tabby, is a chunk and weighs 13 lbs. Gotta love 'em!
    We used to have a Maine coon who weighed 22 lbs. He was a real character, too.
    We had a Main coon and he was a character too!!!! His name was Fluffles and we still miss him!

    I see floral flabrics getting cut into striiiiipppss.....

    My dogs are not allowed in the sewing room anymore. Too many hairs! The cat is the "keeper-of-the-horses" so she stays out in the barn--happily so.

    I have a cat that does the same thing. I think someday I'm going to have blood all over - after I cut the tip of her tail off. She keeps swishing it right over the ruler when I'm trying to cut. I have to pick her up and take her upstairs to my DH. Then I know she'll be out of the way for a little while.
    Cats do love quilting!

    This is my only boy feline, Carmello, lovable as can be, but just when they were all asleep on this rainy day he comes running when he hears me!!

    The girls are sleeping but he needs to kiss me and be near me. I can't get made at him, I just can't!! lol



    I know what you mean about hugging and kissing cats. I had a beautiful male stray adopt me, turned out to be a Russian Blue, he followed me around like a dog, had to be in the middle of everything and loved to hug & kiss me before I went to sleep. I thought he was human at times, he understood everyuthing I said to him. he's been gone for 18 months, I feel no other cat could ever fill his paws again, he was one in a million.

    I have them too! Not only for the sewing, ironing, but the computer. Can't get anything done without being mean to them and shooing them away. Wouldn't be without my kitties. Big like yours!!!!

    THat big yellow guy looks like a cat we had we named Romeo. He was such a flirt. Your kitties just need their very own quilts so they will leave your alone!

    My orange tabby looks just like yours. He's not very lovable the only time he's like that is at night when I'm asleep and he climbs on Me til he get to my face and taps on my cheek with his paw till he wakes me up. Then he wants lovin. Other than that he will attack me. He will come after me and bite me if the mood hits him. Lol.

    I was going to say, "Get a dog!" Then I realized my Max does essentially the same thing: just about every time I start working in the sewing room, I find him sitting up, behind me, waiting for some attention or an opportunity to tell me he needs something.

    I love to quilt, but I wouldn't trade his love for all the quilts in the world! :)

    Looks to me like you've got help. Your kitty is holding the ruler and fabric for you.
