Learned this the hard way today:

Ladies and gentlemen, don't restring your guitar with a cat around. Seriously. Unless you want to get really mad at the cat, anyway.

Figured I'd share my "duh" moment I had today.
Truer words have never been spoken...
--"Hey, don't worry; don't be afraid, ever, because this is just a ride."--
Seriously, as soon as the cat (appropriately named Ninja for she strikes from nowhere silently) attacked the strings as I fed them through, I smacked myself in the forehead. But by that point I was committed, and just kept shoo-ing her away when she decided it was time to pounce the bouncing string ends.
Oi, I bet. That's a two pronged attack right there. They can out flank you, especially with your hands full.
I know what you mean. When I try and restring my guitar both the cats come over and start messing with the excess string, or try an attack the string while I'm feeding it through.
that happened to me earlier this week- i know exactly what you mean!!!
