I have a little nook where I've set up my sewing stuff recently. It's just a banquet table that's now nearly covered with a shelving unit left over from an old second-hand computer desk we had a while back, and my sewing machine, containers of yarn and ribbon and needles and other assorted bits and pieces of my stabs at creativity. There's also, in the corner, a red pillow from our living room that split along the seam and needs to be closed up. The only problem with that – now – is that Softie and Scratchy have claimed it for their own.
You can see a bit of it at the bottom of the picture above. Right under Scratchy. The two kittens (well, catolescents, I guess) have taken turns napping on that pillow so much that it's now mostly gray with fur and dented in the shape of curled-up-cat.
When we got back from our little trip last week, Scratchy, in particular, was insanely glad to see us and has been extra clingy to me ever since. So when I set up my laptop on the tiny bit of remaning space of the sewing table, he was right there with me.
He's really a sweet cat. Still doesn't like to be picked up – although of all of us, Alex has the most success at it. But Scratchy is a very companionable cat.
He's good company.
