    There's something about fabric and cats. One of mine will find any fabric to lay on. And if she can't get her whole body on the fabric, a few paws on the edge will do. Surprisingly, I found the other cat - who hasn't previously demonstrated a liking of fabric - laying on a folded up quilt in progress. Wow, was she indignant when shooed off.

    Thanks for the morning chuckles! It is clear that cats know cozy when they see it!

    I have two ginger-haired sibling kitties. They like every piece of fabric they can find. Even my ironing board. I do enjoy them. When they get to be too much, I let them play in the garage. They love it.
    They and all cats do not like citrus so in the spare bedroom is a citrus room deodorizer.

    I think it is sweet and probably if I had one, they'd do the same thing.

    I didn't take a picture but my cats do the same thing...I spent as much time taking the cat fur off as I did quilting. Now, I pin large trash bags across the quilt for them to lay on...they are happy and so am I!

    How cute, to see you cat find his own hammock. Love it.

    I quilt on my DSM and my kitties have to be there for every stitch. While I was quilting the edge of a quilt on all sides, my cat, Taffy, laid smack in the middle of the quilt napping while I moved it around in a circle. She was so cute and so trusting. I do have to shoo them away when they get too close to the machine or start clawing at my project.

    They are true pals, mine would lay on the end of my sewing machine onwhat ever I was sewing to watch the process. sometimes he would get mouthy when I move all the fabric out from under him. love them
    Freedom is costly and quilting keeps us busy...

    Haven't figured out why cats run and hide from vacuums and the dogs aren't bothered by it!

    My two and my DD's two that I dog-sit hate the vacuum The biggest is the same size as a small pony-------but all are scared to death of noise.

    My next dog----------will learn to be vacuumed and will also learn to love regular baths. 2 are white, one is gray-----------but they are light "dirt" colored now. Like some other critters, they are digging up the yard looking for cool dirt-----------and moles.

    Talking

    what is it about cats and quilts??? I don't care where she is, the minute I lay out my quilting, there she is curled up on the first piece she can get to. LOL...Happens every time. Good thing I de-lint and wash everything I make.

    My Ragdoll kitty did the same thing when I had my mid-arm machine and quilting table. It makes it a little difficult to keep the quilt tight in the frame. lol

    Andy thinks everything in our house is here solely for his comfort! You gotta love 'em! You have a cute kitty. Does he have blue eyes?

    That's so funny. I think Iggy (cat) has tried mine out. Atleast someone or something should get some use out of it.

    Ah, his own personal hammock. I think he approves of the colors and quilting. Very nice. I do think cats love the quilts that shows them off the best.

    One of my cats is fascinated by anything mechanical and that includes my sewing machine. He's scared the stuffing out of me by batting at the needle as I sewed a few times. Thankfully he's never been hurt but I keep him off my sewing table now - it would be so horrible if he managed to get his little paw under the needle!

    He sure does fear the vacuum cleaner though. If I so much as open the closet where it's kept he's off like a shot and hiding under the couch for at least a half-hour.

    My Ragdoll did the same with the quilt I was hand quilting for my dd. Everytime I hooped it, there he was to sit either under the hoop or on it. He has blue eyes and is so fun. I love Ragdoll kitties.
