I’ve recently taken up cardmaking as a hobby. It’s a lot of fun and has definitely been a good way to unwind from a hard day of work!
But you’re not hear to read about cardmaking. You’re hear for cats. And it just so happens that Sampson relates to the subject of my cardmaking. How does he relate?
Well, because he apparently wants to help me with it. All the time.
If I’m sat at the table with paper, stamps and ribbon all around me, he’ll hop up to see what I’m doing. He’ll walk over the papers, swipe at the scissors as I’m trying to cut something, play with the bits of ribbon.
And when I’m trying to photograph the cards he comes to help with that too. It’s like he has some sort of sensor that tells him I’m doing it. Even if he was nowhere in sight he’ll suddenly appear, walking in front of the card to inspect it, pushing at the camera to make sure I get the perfect shot. He’s so… helpful..!
It is of course very sweet of him to want to be with me when I’m working on my hobby, but it sure can be inconvenient at times. Bless him.
Does your cat like to help with your hobby? Is your cat more of a help or a hindrance when assisting?
