Crafty Cats

How is it that cats always know exactly which piece of fabric you want to use next? Bunn, my very most favourite special pussy cat, is, characteristically, charmingly aloof and altogether disinterested in human activity (like most good kitties). Come craft time though, especially craft time involving large pieces of various types of fabric, and she comes a-runnin'. She'll usually try a few pieces out before she settles on one which has been specially selected as the location for some careful self-grooming. If I've laid out a selection of pieces which have already been cut out, sure as anything, Miss Bunn will sit on the exact piece that I need next. Let's just say she's gifted. I'm sure she could use the sewing machine, but her legs aren't quite long enough to reach the foot pedal... For now, she uses her skills in the fabric-selection department, and occasionally in the "let's make this skirt look like it's been made out of brown felt" department.
