Is it just me, or are a lot of knitters also "cat people"?
I've been a crazy cat lady for years, but a knitter for only a few months. It seems to me that most of the other knitters I run across are also cat people. Wonder what the corelation is?

Sound off "Cat People"!

- Hmmm, wonder why there isn't a smiley spitting out a cat hair?

Probably because our felines are so adored and well cared for they don't get hairballs!!! =-D

I love my 3 fur babies. I just figure, some people have kids. I have cats. Education is cheaper, too.

Chel - I onced worked for a vet and when a client would comment about the high cost, I would always remind them, "at least you don't have to send him/her to college"!

I'm a cat person, we had a great thread about our cats and every one posted photos and stories of their kitties. My cat is called Buffy, and she's the 2nd love of my life. (1st been hubby!)

Nobones - I'll have to look for that - I love all things "kitty"!

We have 9 housecats - yes, I'm a crazy cat lady and I have a crazy cat husband. We've been discussing becoming a no-kill shelter (which we essentially are).

I don't think it's specifically knitting and cats. I do a lot of quilting and some other needlecrafts as well and it seems that most of the people I know have at least one cat. Some also have a dog as a family member. I just think those of us with a creative bent need to share our love with animals that love us back. We have three cats and two of them are laying on items I've created right now. Pretty sight.

I think basically knitters (anyone who appreciates the work of their hands and fruits of their labor) are good-hearted, loving people. What's more fun to love than a furball wagging tail?!? (Flicking tail in case of cats).
