Mummy's Little Helper?

There are lots of things you have to do if you run an online shop, and a blog, and are working up to a website...or even just if you want to keep a record of your work. So you take photographs... and there's lots of online advice about how to do just that. Nowhere, however, is it written that your cats will endeavour to take an active part in proceedings. This shows Merlin strolling nonchalantly over the green FQ I was photographing for Etsy. It's worse in winter, of course... then they have muddy paws, and you have to wash the cloth yet again... sigh.

I'm planning to do some dyeing next week; lets hope the little treasures will keep their paws, and noses, out of that... Wishful thinking? Yup. Andrew as small child was much easier than this...all you needed to get five minutes peace was to give him a new book. Merlin, sadly, doesn't read.

hmmm - i sympathise. every time i look down i see a new cat or dog hair. and of course they are most noticeable in meetings :)

i'm sure there are many etsy buyers who would see cat hair or paw marks as an added bonus!

my shot at wishful thinking... if i make enough of a disturbance now will you buy me a new book?!?!?!?!? :-D

It would need to be a hell of a big disturbance to reach from Edinburgh to Norfolk... did you have a particular book in mind, dear?
