Det är ju Odjuret från Disneys Skönheten och Odjuret!
Jag tror du har rätt!
My champagne tabby is always all over the sewing table when I am working. There isn't a ribbon or thread that hasn't been nibbled or swatted. He is fascinated by the up and down motion of the sewing machine needle - I shoo him away because I am afraid he will bat at it. Cats are wonderful and interesting creatures. Pattern fabric - he is on it and over it. Treats it like a camping tent and tries to go under. Silly boy.
Oh, I know exactly what you mean! The second I put fabric on the floor (because I don't have a cutting table) my kitten NEEDS to sit on it for a god while. Then he likes to hide under it. Everything is fine so far but when he tries to chase the scissors while I'm cutting I put my foot down!
