No, I am not going to go there . . .ie. whether cats are better than dogs or vice versa. Truth is I like 'em both. Where I am going to go is to ask, who would be the better crafter/artisan? I would argue cats, paws down.
My cats love my beads, they are compelled to jump onto my workspace and splatter them any chance they get. And wire and earrings? Playthings! Sparkly, shiny gems are something to be admired, and while few cats really need adornment, they would certainly not argue that us lesser beings need a little sparkle. My cats obsess over my workspace, 'help' take pictures and try to sneak into them when they can to show their admiration for the craft (or my model).
Dogs? While some might be quite crafty in their own way, most think the destruction, rather than construction of goods is the way to go. I suppose I could say that my pitbull mix is a woodscrafter of sort, except that few admire the changes he has made to our window sills.
And his thoughts on my jewelry pictures and mannequin?
