The Usual Suspect


SOMEONE has been chewing on my sock needles.

I wonder what she'd do if you put the plastic points on the tips? I have a couple of fancy cardboard tubes that I bought to tuck a set of 4 or 5 fine needles into to keep them together when I wasn't finished knitting. Still have to hide the yarn, though.
One of mine like plastic need tips. aaagrh. Good thing they're cute.

Which is worse? Chewing the needles or chewing the hand made socks? The Maine Coons leave the knitting alone but if I cut fabric on the floor - well the Flying Hairy Monkeys arrive to scatter the "evil" fabric all over.

Funny to have a cat that chews-my little girl likes to do that too-first one I ever had that did!

We used to have a cat that fought with the scissors. As I was cutting out a dress, Mr. Bo would paw and nip at the scissors. I was always afraid I'd hurt the silly animal.

I shut mine out of the room when I cut fabric and live with the howls and scratching at the door instead. It's a wonder Mr. Bo never lost a whisker to the scissors.

Either all cats are crazy - most likely explanation - or I just had more than my share. In addition to Mr. Bo, we also had a cat who ate sewing thread. She'd get on the sewing machine when I was making something, and chew on the thread as it want past. I had to unthread the machine when I closed it up because she'd pull on the spool. We'd come home and find thread wrapped around the chair legs, up and down the steps, etc. She had surgery twice to remove 35 or 40 yards of the stuff, and the big worry was that the new thread doesn't dissolve in the gut; it will just cut into the intestines, the way a wire goes through cheese. The third time around we just had to have her put down. too many surgeries were wearing on her, and getting more and more expensive. You can't reason with an animal the way you can with a kid.
