Time for a cat nap

I’m a bit of a workaholic.  It’s the definite pitfall of doing what you love for a job – you forget to ever stop!

Sometimes when I work too hard and forget to pause for anything more than a cup of tea Felicity has to come along and remind me to take a break.

She does this very efficiently, by the simple method spreading herself over as much of what I am working on as she can possibly cover:

Especially when it’s so adorable!

And so good at her job!

  1. Sigh. I’m not even a workaholic, and I have this problem.
    Ooo! Is that your Knitting? the cats cry. I must Sit In It! Here, let me get that working yarn wrapped round my leg while I lick myself…
    And they seem to think DPNs are designed specifically for rubbing their gums on. All right, they do look a bit like toothpicks (2mm bamboo needles) but the fact that there’s a sock hanging from them should be a bit of a clue, surely?
    Alas, my cats, while cute in their own ways, do not look near as adorable as Felicity while interfering – which may be why they get a less gracious response!

  2. She’s adorable. How do you get anything done?! If it wasn’t for cats, I’d have some kind of high-flying job that takes me all over the world. Instead I work from home, when allowed to clear my workspace.

    My dear16 year old Koko is the best sewing companion, she also lets me know when it is time for a break. I love you pictures of Felicity, she is a beauty!

    Have I mentioned that Felicity is just the sweetest thing?

  5. Felicity is such a gorgeous cat ! So fluffy !

    My two tigers are more interested by fabrics, especially soft and warm ones. Patterns are not confortable enough….

  6. She also gets those strips of fur with gaps between; father started occasionally calling our fluffy cats “armadillo” because of that effect. (It admittedly makes a little bit more sense in Czech…) And makes herself useful! While making everything and everyone useful to her, of course. Cats.
