HOW am I supposed to sew ...

... when a cat demands to be caressed??? Sigh ... as you can see, Basti can be VERY demanding ... (and of course, it's almost impossible to say "NO!" when he asks to be stroked ...)
Wie um alles in der Welt soll ich eigentlich nähen, wenn eine Katze energisch "Liebe!" verlangt??? Seufz ... wie man sieht, kann Basti SEHR fordernd sein ... (und natürlich ist es fast unmöglich, ihm seinen Kuschelwunsch abzuschlagen ...)

Haha, it is your duty to drop all sewing and get to kitty-scratching then! My cats are the same way when I lay out fabric to cut it. It's like a magnet!

Julie, the funny thing about our Basti is: he could be sleeping anywhere in the house. As soon as he hears me approaching my sewing machine, he wants instant attention ;-)) Sometimes, it is a bit annoying (I'm talking deadlines here ...) but you're right, most of the time it's just cute and heart-warming ;-)))

How could you possibly resist, he's adorable. I would stop everything to have a cuddle with him. You're a lucky woman.

QuiltSue said...

Well the answer is that you are not supposed to sew when he is demanding attention!

Connie said...

Basti is very beautiful and looks so helpful!

Staci said...

She is so beautiful! Her fur is just gorgeous.
Good luck sewing with that charmer around.

How adorable. I love, love your quilt in the header. Gorgeous!

Jennifer said...

How funny! I guess that's a positive for having a dog... there's no way they could jump up and stand on a quilt under my sewing machine!

Basti is a beautiful cat, and I wouldn't be able to ignore him either.

hetty said...

When pets wnat attention, don't fight it. Just go with their demands. It's easier on everyone. I love, love, love the quilt in your header!

Jan said...

When the cats demand, we must obey;-J

Tonya said...

Well, he's the boss!

Lesly said...

What a sweetie he seems to be - I can't imagine being able to ignore him!

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

What a sweet cat. I've always thought cats were stand offish, but yours seems to be a lovey one.

Basti is so cute! My grey kitty, Jada Bean loves to get loves when I want to sew as well.
Got to love them.
hugs,

My cat is the same way, but usually about the computer. If I don't stop and pet her, she sits on the keyboard.

andsewon said...

What a pretty fella Basti is!

Melissa said...

Cats do want what they want when they want it, don't they? Good thing it is so fun to appease them!

missknitta said...

It would definitely be hard to say no to Basti! Thanks for sharing his photo :)

Talin's Corner said...

Basti is trying to help you! That is too cute.

Janet said...

Basti is a lovely majestic cat. I bet he loves his strokes.

Sand and Sunshine said...

Aww! So cute! Love this boy. I know exactly what you mean. When my Tiny girl curls up on the sewing area I wonder how I can get anything done. Maybe it's a gray cat thing?

LethargicLass said...

Basti is a cutie... cats really do have to be the centre of attention LOL

QueenB said...

The attention we want to spend on sewing is theirs by right isn't it? That's the way they see the world. They are lovely.
