A new man will be entering my life, taking up residence with me by this month’s end. Weighing a whopping 3.2 pounds as of Monday, his name is Sage. Everyone, say hi to this furry cuteness. Oh my goodness!
I’ve hesitated to bring any sort of furry friend into my home, and cats, being the stealthy creatures that they are, were on the same level as dogs. One minute you see them and the next minute you don’t. I was afraid that if I wasn’t careful, they would eat a pin or swallow a button, and if they did, what kind of cat mother would I be!? I’m also not the most maternal woman in the world. Some ladies have a natural baby instinct. I don’t… or didn’t until recently. Maybe it’s the age, or maybe it’s my friends who are bearing their own children, or maybe it’s my family’s new cat that I fell in love with over Christmas, but my desire to care for something is finally coming to fruition. I’ve always been a late bloomer. I’m still waiting for set a set of boobs (because 2 is better than 1) and hips. Whether you love them or loathe them, we can all agree that cats run Instagram – #catsofinstagram! Even Jesse Eisenberg recently came out as a proud member of team cat. He’s so adamant about his felines that he skipped a movie festival to take Mr. Trunkles on a relaxing vacation. Cation Designs hosts her own cat awards. Cats rule and dogs drool.
So I’ve gone and done it with the rest of the sewing world, and now I’m asking for your advice. How do you handle cats around your sewing supplies? If you don’t have a room dedicated to sewing, how do you keep it away from your pins, needles and other notuons while your away? What about keeping it away from expensive household items in general?
