After coming home this weekend to an obscene amount of dog fur on my new pillows (from Kelly + Elena), I'm officially inventing a new unit of quilting measurement: FPSI, also known as Fur Per Square Inch.
Why? Because all pets are inherently drawn to handmade items. It's a scientific fact.
Also, it seems there's a positive correlation between how much you love an item, and the FPSI. Pets can sense these things. Here is photographic evidence. He knows...oh yes, he knows....he's literally licking his chops over how much fur he's gonna rub on it...
Sensing my absence this weekend and Ray's general lack of concern, I'm pretty sure Whiskers did barrel rolls on my pillows while I was gone to increase the FPSI of my most beloved new pillows, and slowly claim them as his own.
It took not one, but FOUR sticky roller sheets to take the FPSI from 100 back down to zero.
It's a vicious cycle, but this isn't over dog!
