Why is it that cats think they were put on this earth to "help" with everything you do? My three cats have no problem walking right through the dye pots, onto the fabric I'm trying to dye and then worse yet, onto the furniture, leaving colorful paw prints on everything they touch. And shut them out of the room and you would think they are being tortured! The noise they make!
This is Mollie, one of my three feline helpers. She's a little cat but quite territorial and chases any cat that dares to come near our lanai. However, she's the first to turn and run if they come towards her. She was rescued from the Waimea Humane Society Shelter when she was two. I don't know her background but she had been in another shelter on the other side of the island and rather than put her down, they moved her to Waimea for one last chance at a new home. Lucky for me. She's now about 6 years old -- almost a mature adult in cat years. She would really love to be an only cat, but she's stuck with two sisters.
One more dye session and I'll be through with these dyes and ready to mix some different colors. I try not to keep the mixed dye more than a few days unless I'm using it on silk.
