after watching a friends two chaos elementals use some replacement guttering as a waterslide.. (replacing old gutters with new ones, and watering the lawn...) I'd say nothing is safe.

i used to have a cat , who sat on the back of my head, when i leaned down to cut fabric on the floor ...  and i couldnt lean up because that would result in claws in my head.

my kitty now hasnt discovered my crafting yet,  he/she is always asleep.  beastie is too little to tell whether its a girl or boy yet...

everyone talks about their pets...here's my lovely story.

Three year old, wet canvas (oils of course because we just had to be difficult), me napping.  result: childsize hand prints on everything in sight.

three year old, tubes of paint left out, me napping.  result: colorful carpet where it had once been a pale cream color.

three year old, fabric stash and yarn left out, me napping.  result: everything in sight tied together

and my very personal favorite...

seven year old, polymer clay project, baking cakes, me leaving the kitchen area to chase down the three year old who was trying to eat clay.  result: polymer clay baked into my cake.  apparently, my seven year old cousin didnt understand that we were going to bake the clay AFTER the cakes were done.  not to mention that she isnt allowed near the oven.

Moral of my story...Dont nap during baby's nap time because he will wake up before you do and he will make a mess.  also, keep baby in his playpen while crafting anything.  because he will eat it.

the end.  ^^

The other day I was right in the middle of a sewing project, and stopped for a while to eat dinner.  I set everything atop my sewing table so my curious yorkie and her sidekick, the cat, wouldn't get into any trouble.  Well, stupid me forgot to move the chair away from the table!  When I came back, my tomato full of pins was on the ground ... and my dog had taken all the pins out of the tomato and were all over the ground!!  OMG I freaked out -- I was so scared that she swallowed one .. but apparantly not since she is still up and causing trouble.  But talk about a scare!!  I guess I will remember to move my chair and/or just put things away! 

Just when the caterpillar thought it would die, it turned into a butterfly.

My cat used to "suckle" on my knitting until I made him his own little "blankie". Now he carries it around the house and "suckles" it!

I have a cat that does that as well! But not with knitting but with my fabrics. I will lay something on the floor to cut it and he bounds over lays down starts kneading it and then suckles it. Then i must wash the fabrics before I make anything with them.

Funniest thing is he is a HUGE cat. His tail alone is 14 inches long. He weighs 30 lbs and is the biggest pet I own (including the dog) yet it is he who suckles my fabrics like a little kitten!

I have the usual cat the likes yarn. He is pretty sneaky about it though because he gets in my stash when i'm not home and then hides it under my grandmas bed and then in the moringing there is yarn all over the house. One time I looked in there and there was a ball that was to big to fit under the bed.
My mom has two pugs and they like to chew on everything from hemp to yarn to ipods. The little one is lucky my ipod still works with the teeth marks in it.

My cat loves to help me sew. I have told her time and time again that once she gets opposable thumbs she can join in, but before that, crafts are off limits. She doesn't give a toss and joins in at every opportunity.
Every time I spread out fabric out to cut, she will come and lie on it and to try swat the scissors (I'm deathly afraid I'm accidentally going to snip off a toe one day!) while shedding like there's no tomorrow. On occasion she will actually run up to the fabric, slide on it across the floor and then plop down on top of the crumpled fabric with an expression that says "My job here is done."

I haven't painted at all since I got my cat, as before now I couldn't keep her away from the paint. And reading the previous posts in this thread, I think we all know that cats (or other pets & children) and paint don't mix. Now I have a separate work room and the little miss isn't allowed in there at all!

I think this is the funniest thread I've read on Craftster!

My furchild (a cat) is Sassy (short for Sasquatch b/c she is polydactyl on all fours, and has HUGE paws).

She is ever so fond of WIRE, and just loves to help when I'm trying to be careful (there's a surprise). Her m.o. is to sit calmly on the floor (i'm sure she'd whistle innocently, were she able) all the while surruptisously plotting her next move. She waits until THE opportune moment to pounce. And pounce she does. She swats the beejeebers out the wire, and will then proceed to leap up and balance herself on the back of the vertical part of the chair (behind my head) for optimal positioning for the next swat.

Cats are grand, aren't they!

Well, you know the old joke:
How do you find the exact center of a piece of fabric?

Spread the cloth out on the floor and leave the room for a moment.  When you come back, the cat will be in the exact center!

One time I found Sweet William (RIP) in the dark hallway, chewing something.  I swept my hand in front of his mouth, only to find he had eaten a threaded needle - needle end first!!!!  Needless to say that was the last time I left any supplies within his reach!!!!  (I usually stick them in the arm of the couch where I am sitting)

He was the absolute BEST cat, even so!  When I had pneumonia, he stayed either on my chest or next to me, and wouldn't leave me.  Nice furry vibrating heating pad.....sigh...
