Great stories and cat pictures guys!

Indeed!! I'm unfortunately rather allergic to cats and many dogs but still love 'em. My little buddy has hair so I can deal with him better, besides he seems to like to get involved in my projects.

Enjoying this thread, specially Tulio's story.

We have two cats and, like all the humans I know, they have absolutely no interest in model cars. In fact both species tend to avoid my work room as if it were some kind of embarrassment.

He seems very interested in your project. Pets are real companions!

My neighbour's cats ( adopted during the summer ) who see me off to work every morning ( 0600 HRS ) and when I get home ( 1700 HRS ) .

Their names are "Butterscotch" (Red Tabby , male) and "Bandit" (black / white , female)

Our cats are not allowed downstairs, way too much trouble for them to get into, and believe me, they mange to get into trouble with nothing! Two peas in a pod, mama and son, Tortoise shell is mama, Maddie, orange tabby is her boy, Sammie.

My current cat, Zoey, now only occasionally comes down the basement to visit me at the model desk. Usually it's an indication that he wants me to go upstairs and go to bed. Sometimes he wants just wants attention. But he doesn't come down as much as he did. I think the paint fumes now bother him (He's almost 12 years old).

Several years ago one of my prior cats, Chachi or Tazio, got onto my model bench and got hold of the only distributor that I ever successfully drilled for plug wires. Several weeks later I found the part minus some of the wires.

Wow, you're worse than my Sister, Her Boyfriend, and Me put together, spend too much time around cats and we're miserable and it has nothing to do with how the cats act, unless it belongs to one of their friends and former co-workers........ He seems to home in on who ever is allergic and make sure you spend plenty of time with him!

No trouble with the cat (so far), but one of the dogs decided to munch on a GT350 project!

This is so cool. Thanks everyone for sharing. Yes, cat hairs in the paint are a constant concern. Thank goodness for microfiber towels. 

Shasta has gone back to her comfy bed on the other side of the hobby table. It might have something to do with me stacking a couple of model car projects in that box. Once I get done with final assembly on those, I can get back to the Titan IIIc.
