Quality control. Of a sort.

The cat who used to be the baby of the family thinks the sewing room is incredibly boring, which was a much-appreciated surprise, as Baby is incredibly persistent, and forgets nothing that interests him.

We have two new boys, though, and one of them loves to spend time with me in the sewing room.  Leo is a very lazy relaxed fellow and, unlike Baby, refuses to jump up anywhere.  Leo respects the gates we have all over the house:  Baby sails right over the gates, but Leo refuses to.

Naturally, I assumed my sewing table was safe.  I was wrong.  Apparently Leo can do a standing leap from the floor to above my waist if sufficiently motivated.  And his persistence more than matches Baby’s.

I do not find his assistance helpful.

We reached an accommodation:

Leo is another BIG cat; he’s also a Maine Coon, like our Emma, but with different coloring.  He probably won’t be full-grown, though, for another year or so.

    Maine Coons are great!! they are so friendly. One we had growing up loved cantaloupe…her face would be right in the half-cut lope before we knew what was happening!

    AWwwwwwwwww. Cute. At least he doesn’t eat pins. 🙂

      No, he doesn’t eat pins, Shams, but his brother Aldebaran does! Also elastic bands and electrical cords, which we discovered when our DSL developed some reliability problems. He’d gnawed through a bundle of cables while hidden behind Mr. Noile’s desk.

      Mr. Debs, as we fondly call him, has a few mouthy problems. He’s not allowed in the sewing room without an eagle eye supervising.
