    OK. How does anyone quilt with cats. I can't keep them off the quilts. Well, I love my cats and they love my quilts. A match made in heaven I guess.

    I love the colors in your quilt, and your kitty is precious too.

    Looks familiar to me. My cat Tigger will get on any quilt I lay down on the floor. He gives me this guilty look, because he know he is going to get thrown off the quilt. He also likes to sit on my ironing board, especially when I am using it for a cutting surface.

    Yes. The middle cat is a Maine Coon. He sure does look like yours. We named him Gus Gus after to fat little mouse in Cinderella.

    I have a basket I keep by my sewing machine. Throw all my left over material in it and the cat sleeps there. Keeps my material warm, I guess.

    What great looking cats! Oh yea, nice quilts too!
    Since I don't have much room in my house to lay out fabric/quilts, I usually move furniture around, mop/sweep the floor and lay it on the floor to pin my quilts together. My "little girl" Monique LOVES to help. I put the pins in, she pulls them out. I guess she doesn't like where I put them and is trying to tell me I need to move them to another spot. She lays on the fabric while I am sewing, cutting, etc. Such a naughty girl, but ya gotta love her!

    Is the last cat a chocolate point siamese ? I love siamese cats ! I had 3 seal points { all males } years ago . These are such loving cats . Could I see a pic of his / hers face ? You know dogs like quilts too . We have a border collie / german shepherd mix and anything that gets laid down , gets laid on ! :lol:

    This is Blue. He is a burman. Looks alot like a siamese, but has long fur and really long tufts of fur between his toes. He is a real lover and is happiest on my lap.

    Well, my cat died after 17 1/2 years and before I started quilting. But, my dogs are just as bad. They can't get on the table (or at least - thank heavens - don't KNOW that they really can) but anytime a quilt is in my lap being quilted or on the floor they are right on it. And, they did find my fabric stash once and pawed it around to make a bed.

    I think it is an attention thing with a dog. With cats, I think it is more of showing us who is really the boss!

    Cute kitties.

    Yeah, my dog tries to come into my craft room but he weighs 140 lbs and is very big, so I have no room when he is in here. He can't understand why the cat is allowed and he is not. lol when you see the look on his face!
