I have a kitty, Sophie, who won't let me tat--she thinks all that dangly thread is her's, so she bats at it and even grabs it with her mouth while I'm trying to tat. That really messes up my tatting rhythm. And, if I'm not tatting, she is always poking her head in my bag of thread and dragging out whatever she can get. I have to put all my thread into baggies so it won't be all over the floor. She forces me to be neat--I guess that's a good thing. Oh, yes, she is all white and I have lots of sticky lint removers. I even bought a vacuum for cat hair.
When I am tatting, she pretends to be my friend and gets up in my lap, but all she wants is my tatting thread.
Oh, yes, and Sophie does not like to be chased. My grandson, Blythe, likes to chase her around the house to try to pet her, but she will have nothing to do with it. He often sneaks up and when he walks slowly, he can get a pet in every now and then.
