Oh my, what a rascally cat!   This may be why I don’t have a cat, my lap dog is plenty.

Oh what a cat.  Have you ever thought of trying taking an old spool or cone of thread, soaking it with something like Tabasco sauce and than letting Ranger have it while you watched him close.  We had a dog that would not leave something alone no matter whether covered or taped close so we finally sprinkled red pepper flakes around it.  One time was all it took never touched it again.

mod podge scraps of your novelties onto it??

Silly cat...

something like that.  I glued some quilt themed wrapping paper to the big box that covers the whole thing.

it's not the spool, its actual threads.  I've caught him "extracting" threads from my scrap basket too.  We had some sheer curtains that he destroyed one thread at a time, catching a thread with his claws then slowly pulling it out then eating.  I don't see him living a particularly long life at this rate, but at least I can keep the obvious things locked up.

I don't understand the thread-eating thing at all.  After all, they are not mouse-flavored or sardine-flavored.  ;o)  Actually seems like they would not taste good at all.  I can see why they like to toy with the threads, but looks like they would hate having them in their mouths.

Face it: the cat is a jerk.  :-)

Adorable but a jerk.

Stupid. Warm and cuddly, but stupid. He also eats cardboard boxes. Did not get the memo explaining that cats like to get IN boxes. Guess he just read Cats like boxes and thought that meant to eat
