cats: getting in your stuff since...ever

Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, MS 404, fol. 156v:  it's difficult to get any hand-spinning done when you're trying to get the cat away from a bowl of delicious whatever.

-- Fun fact: According to the breakdown of the manuscript at the Beinecke, fol.156v is one of a set of pages containing "Excerpts from Proverbs 11.1-15.4."
