My partner is a cat person to the extreme. HE LOVES CATS. I think cats are cool, but I hate cat hair so much it keeps me from being a true cat person. I have an extensive fabric stash and a sewing studio in my house, so having cat hair around just is never an option. Until recently, my partner worked at an animal shelter and he would fall in love with a new cat almost daily. We came to the agreement that we could adopt a cat, but only if it was hairless.
He worked there for years, but finally a hairless cat was surrendered to the shelter. A kitty cat! No cat hair! I can have my cake and eat it too!
Her name is Luna. She’s a Sphynx cat. We’ve had her for about two months and she’s definitely settled into studio cat life. She likes to perch on top of the EXACT pattern piece I need and bat all of my tools off the table. Regular obnoxious cat things, I guess.
I’m finding it to be distracting to have a studio cat sometimes. Luna likes to play. Any stringlike object is instantly a cat toy to her.
She sure is cute though. We’ve had her long enough for me to think cats with fur are RIDICULOUS looking. I’m used to seeing a naked cat everyday, so furry cats are the weird ones.
