    CATS

    can ANYONE explain to me the fascination to a cat that quilting has? the cats come running from all over to inspect my new purchases, one ALWAYS sits on my cutting mat when I am cutting out fabric, another one sits right behind my machine--so obviously I am always watching for errant paws or tails, but they are fairly careful. But if I want attention from one of them, NOTHING! I thought about this when I was looking at the Kaleidoscope quilt from another poster and she had to wait until the cats were asleep to layer the quilt.

    Re: CATS

    Cats are superior creatures and the humans who belong to them are expected to give them undivided attention precisely when and in the amounts that they want. They learn fast what other activities hold our attention and they attempt to disrupt such activities at every opportunity so that our attention is not divided. How dare we inferior humans not think that the cat who owns us is the most important thing in the house. If you want attention at any time other than when they choose to give it you will be treated with utter disdain.

      Is that what it is? My cat seems to take any opportunity to go into my sewing room, he loves the carpet tiles to claw on and really loves to lay full out on my canvas topped table. I try to keep him out but it is a useless effort on my part. So far he hasn't tried to lay behind the sewing machine, guess that is next.;0)

        This is so funny cause it's so true!!
        I can't layer a quilt here either - not on the kitchen table nor the floor cause the quilt is like a magnet with a birdie sound that's signaled the cats! Just when you think they are asleep, BOING! there they are! I have to go down to the church and set up the tables to use them to layer and pin baste my quilts.
        I had a huge cat, Shadow, who would actually lay his head on the sewing machine itself right at the needle area. Another one would lay directly where the fabric came out at the other side of the needle and poke at the pieces trying to hurry them along in case I would turn them into something for them to lay on. And if I didn't, the pieces were just fine and liked to scatter them all over the place.

        Yes, they know who's in charge!

          I've noticed when watching you tube videos on quilting how many times a kitty shows up in the videos. It made me wonder the same about the cats. Our kitty has never taken an interest in my quilting, but boy, if I get a newspaper in my hands she's right there in the middle of it! They keep our lives interesting, to say the least. I'll never be without one!

              LOL! My sewing area is in the basement and behind the sewing table is a pile of cardboard boxes (you know, all those empty TV and computer boxes that you just can't throw out). My cat always sits there to supervise my sewing.

              Martha - I love Simon's cat. It's all so true. There's a great one where the cat's trying to wake him up.

              I got a sewing machine for my husband. Good trade, huh!?!

                      We have three cats and its amazing to me how each wants his bit of attention differently. One of them loves to get up on my desk when I start up the embroidery machine. We've not been cat owners as long as some, our first one came to us about ten years ago and forever changed our lives. We still love our dogs but something so rewarding when a cat shows you how much they love you. One in particular I think knows that we saved his life, my husband found him up in a tree and no mother anywhere around. My sister who works for a vet said he was dehydrated, hadn't been fed in several days. One day, the vet asked me how did we raise cats and dogs that were so loving and appreciated meeting new people, I said we just love them and that is what we get back in return! Chris

                        My cats stay out of my sewing room, but my dog sleeps on her bed while I am there. The cats just love being in the middle of things...like a fresh load of laundry!
