HAHAHA! Not sure my cats would appreciate the noise!
Two of them absolutely love to come down in the workshop with me, and of course, it’s the black one who always manages to roll in the sawdust before I can stop her!

I have a shop cat, Peanuts the mouse slayer, I’m always worried he is gonna jump on the TS or jointer while I’m using it. Good idea on the collection system.

I lost my shop cat last year, her name was stubby, which also came from her spending time in the shop.
now my neighbors siamese sneaks in whenever I leave the door open, so maybe a dust collection litter box would be easier than getting scratched up catching her and tossing her out.great idea

My neighbor’s cat hangs out with me. The only problem is she likes to hang out right under my feet, almost a trip hazzard.

I don’t know I have a 3hp dust collection system that wouls just about suck the chrome off of a bumper, I would hate to find the cat stuck half way up a pipe, my wife would like me even less than she already does.

I have a cat in the building I use for my shop to keep the mice out, but without a dust collection system, there is always piles of sawdust that she thinks are her litter box. She always wants a lot of attention, jumping up on me. So for those reasons, the shop is off limits to her.

I’m surprised to see how many people have cats roaming around their shop. My cat has only recently been brave enough to venture into my shop. I was a little worried at first but he doesn’t seem to get into much trouble as long as the shop is decently clean. I am a little scared of tripping over him on my way to a machine, I guess I’ll have to start watching my feet.

They fit in them little tubes? Sounds like a fun ride, could have a kitty amusement park.
