To go with the cat/ribbon thing, we have a spray bottle of water that we use to change our cats mind when she wants to do something 'bad'. Roll Eyes

That works with our older, careful tabby.  Our dervish-in-a-tuxedo (Milo the Spazmo Destructo) thinks spray bottle is THE COOLEST water fountain, ever.  (He's the same cat that climbs the inside of the shower curtain to say 'hi' when either of us are bathing.)

LMAO! I can just picture the peek-a-boo around the corner. When I was knitting (I don't any more, no patience) my cats would try to eat the needles too. Then, when they couldn't get that, they'd go for the yarn. And if it fell on the floor, it was fair game as far as they were concerned.

OMG, this thread is hilarious!   Cheesy
So many stories are so familiar - I have several cats and dogs that are desperate to be on my lap as soon as I pick up a project.

One cat in particular fancies herself "the cutting inspector" and wants to get up close and personal anytime I cut something on the floor.  I swear, she's going to lose a whisker one of these days!  Having to walk around in circles until it grows back, that'll teach her.

Once I was painting an endtable in the living room (what was I thinking?) and stepped into the kitchen for a moment to wash off my brush.  When I returned, the paint was hopelessly smeared across the top and little navy blue pawprints were leading into the bedroom!!  Cleaning the paint off the carpet was NOTHING compared to cleaning it off the cat's paws.  I could only imagine what chemicals he might be ingesting if he tried to clean them himself!  But did he appreciate those baths to protect his welfare?  Noooo . . .

I did have a pisser cat in the house recently.  He simply couldn't abide a mess or pile, so anytime I left a half-done project out, he'd pee on it.  It got really annoying to have to fold and stack and hide everything when I just wanted to go answer the phone!  Eventually I was storing everything in plastic bags, then he took to peeing on the bags!  They're not waterproof (or peeproof), as it turns out.  An almost-finished blanket and all the remaining yarn had to be totally scrapped, not to mention several bags of garage-sale-treasure yarns and acres of embroidery floss.  He started out just doing this periodically, but one week I came home and found a new project ruined EVERY SINGLE DAY!  That was when we made the executive decision to relocate him to the barn.  He can pee wherever the hell he wants now!

My cats don't appreciate the baths either, so it's become a punnishment. Any time they're bad, they get a bath! You crack me up! I can just picture you trying to scrub blue paint off of a squirmy kitty in the bath tub! hehe Cheesy

i was halfway through and left for two minutes and came back to find a cat entangled in the two or three rows he had unraveled! weird.

Every year at Christmas, when all the nicely wrapped presents are under the tree, my cat Luna chews on the ribbons and swallows them, don't forget people, these ribbons are tied to the presents...so she swallows them but can get it all so basically the ribbons goes from the top of the gift all the way to the whatever organ it end up in of the cat, depending on how long the tail of the ribbon was. Then she has to back to to get the ribbon out and it is a wet slimy chewed up ribbon tail. It's rad.

I have a new puppy.....do I REALLY need to elaborate on the horror this is to my crafty goodness?! Oh ya....it is important to note that she is half Beagle (eats everything) and half Jack Russell (uber hyper!).

A few examples from the past 24 hours:
She almost pulled down the sheet I was using as a back drop for photos last night.

She knocked over a tray of beads and proceeded to eat them as I was scrambling to pick them up. (I predict colorful poo in the near future! I know - EW!)

She thinks my sponge brushes are the best chew toy ever.

But she is just sooooooooo cute!
