While I Was Out.....

I have a big quilting project spread out all over my dining room table. There are fabric pieces, sewing tools, a sewing machine and this spool holder and a large spool of thread.I went out this morning to run some errands and this was how I found Roscoe the cat when I got back - hiding under a dining room chair. Why???Well, for one thing, the spool was a bit larger when I left, and when I came home I tripped over a grey line of thread across the hallway. Hmmmm. I tugged at the grey line of thread and started to reel it in. The thread went from the dining room table, two times around the table, down the hall, into the guest room, under the bed, around the desk, back out into the hall, into my sewing room, around the ironing board 3 times, down the hall again, into the kitchen, down the basement steps, and finally finishing up by the kitty litter box. Someone had a very exciting morning.

What a little devil, a cute one though. I bet you had to laugh!

Margaret said...

Oh my! lol! Well, if it had been my kitten, she would have eaten the thread and gotten her little intestines all messed up. So I think your cat's fun was better. :D

I'm sorry - I laughed. How in heavens name did he manage to get it all of those places - and without breaking the thread.? What a talented kitty!

Thanks for the laugh! Love the look on Roscoe's face; "I wonder if she suspects I had anything to do with it??"

your little kitty sure had fun while you were away. Reminds me of when my son was little and discovered fishing line and knot tying. He would string that stuff all over the house.

Lisa said...

Perhaps with that much talent the little guy could be pretty handy with a needle, a thimble...what do you think?! Surely you could use an extra paw or two. ~~Lisa

I would love to have a "cat cam" to see what our 2 little darlings do sometimes! Funny story!

All I can do is laugh at your post. He looks so incredibly guilty and I am sure he's quite shocked, too.

Oh i have two like that. The female is a little thief always running off with things on my worktable.

Too funny. We had a cat when I was in college that did something similar with a skein of yarn. We could hardly get the door open to the apartment and ended up using scissors to free the yarn. That cat was quite pleased with herself and very upset when we were destroying her creation!
