What do you do to your thread clippings? Do you just scrap them or do
you use them in something else?

I throw out all my thread clippings because this naughty boy Nikki likes to eat them. He is especially fond of silk floss and once ate most of an entire set of Victoria Clayton hand dyed silk I had for a sampler. Luckily he chewed it to tiny bits and we didn't have an emergency vet visit. I keep all my floss in boxes or zippered project bags and throw the clippings away where he can't get to them.

A floss eating cat? Oh my. But it doesn't surprise me. No shoelace is safe in our house, as ours will chew them to bits if given the opportunity. The silk doesn't surprise me either. Our cat is deeply fond of leather and fur (those are his favorite toy mice), and I've often wondered if cats have a particular pull towards natural fabrics and fibers, silk included.

I am glad that you didn't have to take your cat to the vet. Mine doesn't touch my floss but like my exchange packages when they come from homes with cats.
