Sugar Puff provoked her big thick bro this morning, resulting in
high-speed cat mayhem at 7:30 - underfoot as usual!  Between them they
knocked over one of the two dress stands in the living room (I'm about
to dismantle them!), and she scooted off I knew not where...

I just took another crate of sewing stuff up to the sewing room, and
there she was, in a nest of black velvet project, in a box on the bed!

AAARRRGGGHHH!  The cheek of her!  ;)  I have brung her down and dumped
her in the chair next to Cornflake, who is now too full of cat nosh to
chase her.

How come they always seem to choose the project that has

a) Just been cleaned/ironed
or
b) is hardest to clean
or
c) is most urgent
or
d) is destined for somebody with allergies
or
e) shows up cat hair (of any hue) the most!

or is any combination or ALL of the above!

Luckily mine particularly likes polar fleece offcuts, though yesterday
she decided to sleep on a piece of embroidery in a large hoop.

And then there is always the "I want to play what YOU are playing!!!"
pounce on the current project, never mind the 5000 gazillion cat toys
scattered about the livingroom!!! Oh, well, at least the dog enjoys
playing with them. Besides, Scotty was busy hiding under the coffee
table because of the Walpurgis Night fireworks; he wasn't coming out
for ANYTHING, poor fellow. :-(

I set up at the Minigalleri on Thursday and have the interview with a
journalist from the local paper, then my vernisage is on Sat. Since
this is Ulricehamn's 700th anniversary, I thought I would have a bit
of a medieval theme to my Art Quilts and also sew-up new garb. This
was the project Isabelle was *so* interested in helping me with last
night.

Oh, I'd LOVE to see pix of the quilts and the new garb!  And have a good
time with the festivities.  :)

Cornflake usually likes to help more with the sewing than Sugar Puff,
though she has her moments!  However, I'm such a Whirling Dervish today
that both are lying low!

Embroidered kitty!  What a treasure!  ;)

We were vititing a friend on Sunday, for brunch after swimming.  James's
white T shirt was totally grey when we left, thanks to her large black
panther, Harry.  Adoreable cat: looks like a classic witches cat - thin
and rangy and totally black with big yellow/green eyes...  And as soppy
as they come!

I am empathizing and sympathizing with you on this.  Is it a holiday for
cats or something?  Beltane perhaps?  My little black tortie, with the
curious face lied to the vet about her age, went into heat, had to be
spayed.  The vet said she would hide for a few hours when she got home.
  Never happened.  Hit the ground running and hasn't stopped.  It's a
constant struggle to keep her out of the cabinets and the refrigerator,
the dryer, the clothes washer...everywhere she should not be.  She loves
to have her little shaved tummy rubbed, and it's the only way to keep
her still for a minute.  Meanwhile, she is creating great clouds of
noxious gases - for such a tiny cat, too!  Do I have "sucker" tattooed
on my forehead?

Mine does that when she gets milk as she is, like many cats, lactose
intolerant.  Guess what - she loves milk!

   Our become jet propelled!  And steal milk but won't touch it if you
give them it!  We also have to be careful about whipped cream and cheese
with them...  They love it, but...  :(

Me too!  Ours are cute as hell when they are good, but it's like having
armed toddlers when they act up!

I have had dogs.  You don't fool me.  Dogs have their own set of tricks
- different, but all the same, they take over your life.  Dogs are
nearly as good as cats at training people.

They aren't really the same...  Dogs have owners: cats have staff!

Dogs don't walk all over my food prep/eating area after just coming from
their....duty.

Dogs don't get me up a 3AM scratching in their.. duty box.

Dogs don't sit in the bottom of my closet ontop of my hats.

Need I go on??????????????

I do know what you mean, though.  A friend's cat strode across my

This is why I have a Bunny.  Kind of in between.  Though of course I got
a black and white one so she sheds on EVERYTHING.

Our last pet, a cat, died AFTER both children were grown and gone.
Having over the years had cats, dogs, rabbits, mice, etc. etc., I said
"NO MORE", and now my only pet is dh.

I've rarely met a cat I didn't want to talk to!  :)  Sometimes a cat and
a mug of hot chocolate are heaven...

Oh, we chat to all the dogs and cats in the neighborhood - many of them
come to visit us when we are sitting on the front porch - we just don't
let any one of them own us.
