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 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!

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.

I've had my fair share of kitty carnage on the work bench. Usually provoked by me for leaving fun things like wheels attached to axles n' stuff (hey, I like playing with em too... I get it). I have FOUR cats and they are just awesome. My wife and I luv em all but we have our favorites.  This is my lil buddy Spar.......just a yawn n' stretch on a good day... Yup.

Is that third image in the sequence right after you say "I'm going to build every model I buy!"?

More like.... HEEEEEY! I was not done smackin' that piece around that you need just yet!

 

I just realized how much I love that shot and how dead my lawn is...rain is rare in town this year.

I rescued this beautiful beast from the side of a highway on October 26th 2016 and he couldn't have been more than 6 weeks old, just a babe screaming next to a telephone pole.

We lost our favorite one a little over a year ago the black and white one. Still have some the tiger loves to sit on my lap when I am trying to work. For some unknown reason, maybe because I found her outside starving and nursed her back to health, she just worships me. Most of the rest ignore me except at feeding time or when they want to take a casual stroll through my workbench.

Car show freebie bag from Hagerty's near my workbench has been claimed:

My little computer expert at around 4 mos. old, at 10 mos. old he's way too big to nap on the laptop anymore, even if he still tries:
