I have four cats. I know…..I am one cat away from being “crazy cat lady”. (I checked online, you definitely have to have 5 cats to qualify!) I didn’t mean to have four cats; the last one was spontaneously adopted from the car park of my husband’s golf club….. Cats love two things, well three if you count food; they love shiny things and they like sitting on things. Now, when you have a bead workstation, in my case a dining room table, you are creating a veritable cat paradise. Cats also hate one thing in particular, apart from dogs, and that is being ignored, boy do they hate that – so where your attention is, is exactly where they need to place themselves. (I am sure my cats think my laptop is a butt warmer!) So if you are beading at the table, then that is the place to be for a cat. One of cats, Squeaky (called so because when she meows she sounds like a rusty gate being opened) took this to the extreme and actually plonked herself down right on top of the very bead project I was working on. She is a beautiful cat, but I fear has a brain the size of a pea….
