The wrath of a kitty.
So I've been knitting almost 2 years. My cats have almost always left my yarn alone. There was one time when I first started and I bought my first ball of alpaca that it got messed with, but after that, nothing.

My cat usually sleeps on the bed with us, but the other night, I decided to lock him out of the bedroom so he wasn't bothering me. Our daughter has been sleeping with us and the bed is crowded as it is.

The next morning I woke up to toys all over the place and 3 balls of yarn dragged out. Do you think he messed with the crappy acrylic that I had 2 skeins of on the living room floor and one on the laundry room desk? Nope. He gets on a shelf and digs into a bag to pull out a ball of Malabrigo and 2 balls of Baby Twist, one of which he tears out all over the place.

So does anyone have any tips for repairing this...

That is sad. But at least you've got a cat with good taste.

I guess someone was a little unhappy to be shut out of the bedroom. Hope you manage to salvage the yarn.

start with a glass of wine, or other such beverage. Take it easy, slow, and do not get in a hurry.

Remember, Put the "good" yarn where kitty's can't get to them. I speak with experience. I love my kitty, but she does have a temper at times if i ignore her.

Good luck, and remember take it slow!
