My older cat was a demon when we got her, but enough pssting her away got her to stop. At least when I'm around. She's one to lay on any UFO I leave on the couch, or any sweater I'm laying out to dry.
The little one is getting better. She, too, will grab the moving end, usually when it's on my legs. Ouch! She used to try to chew on the cable, but learned that it's a no-no.
