I woke up feeling cynical, so here is a picture of Toby.
He was “helping” me sew last weekend and just climbed on top of the machine while I was pressing a seam. He usually sits on the machine when it’s covered, which gives him a little more room–note the paw held up to tell me, “Mama, this is too small. Fix it.”
(Don’t worry, he couldn’t have made the machine go, so he wasn’t about to hurt himself.)
I think it’s because you’re paying attention to something that isn’t them.
You should post pics of your kitty boys!
Heh – all three of my kitty boys decided the other night that my desk was the most comfortable spot in the house for sleeping… while I was trying to do some work, naturally. What is it about cats trying to limit human productivity?
Toby, you brighten up everyone’s Monday.
