I just create all my pieces from my home on my kitchen island since I don't have a separate work/office room. I allow our kitty Athos free range of the house (except my teen son's room otherwise we'd never find him again!). He usually sleeps during the day by sitting in the chair and watching me work until he doses off. Then other times, when he feels he's lacking attention, he does this! Don't worry, this piece will be cleaned once it's finished!
