Cat Sitting

This week I have been leaving work and getting a cab straight to an area of SF called Potrero Hills. A friend lives there and I have been looking after her cat while she's been away. This is Luna.
Isn't she sweet? She was a rescue cat and has got a number of scars on her face around her nose and eyebrows where the fur doesn't grow anymore - poor little thing. However, she is now living the life of riley with hot and cold running cat food and everything else taken care of.
When I arrive she is either on the bed or on the back of the sofa so we have a good stroking session before I get a drink and refresh her water and food.

However, once she's had enough strokes we start to play. I took some EPP to the house to do in the evenings and Luna loves the white thread against the dark brown sofa.
It has basically put an end to my sewing since I am worried she will put her paw on the needle!

Having access to a cat for a whole week is such a treat!

When I was pet sitting for my daughter, her black cat kept trying to swipe at the needle of my sewing machine! In an effort to keep him safe, I took to keeping a squirt bottle of water next to my machine...he could look and cuddle with the machine, but when the paws started trying for the needle, I would just shake the spray bottle and he would leave! Drove me crazy with laying on my chain piecing...made it hard to get them to the ironing board and he loved to chase the long chains too!
