Take one white mattress cover . . .

. . . wash it, tumble-dry it, and put it over the back of a chair to finish drying and air out.

What happens next – at least, in this household?

Why, it grows a cat, of course!

Ashbutt regards any laundry temporarily placed on or draped over furniture – particularly if it’s still warm from the dryer – as his personal nesting place, and gets quite indignant if we try to remove him from it.  “But I saw it first!  I claim it!  It’s MINE, dammit!”



  1. Yeah, cats are like that. Fresh cleaned laundry seems to attract them from the farthest corners of the house. That and computer keyboards – they just love walking all over those.
