I was going to put this under the "Pets" section, but then I thought it could apply to some of our nearest and dearest of the human variety!
When the cats are looking for somewhere to have a snooze after a hard mornings hunting (or, in Lily's case a hard session of looking gormless) they will often show a distinct preference for a basket of newly washed and dried laundry.
They have a basket of their own (not laundry, obviously) on the landing with a lovely puffy liner but this is seldom if ever occupied these days. So, I have laboriously de-fluffed it, then hoovered my trousers, and am now going to wash it, hang it on the line and see if it then becomes an object of desire.
Digby will probably not bother as he has taken ownership of a blue plastic mushroom tray that I put in the hall ready to go out for the recycling. He overhangs it a bit, but doesn't seem unduly bothered.
PS Re the opening sentence, I was not implying that some of our nearest and dearest humans would ever contemplate getting in a laundry basket, just wanted to get that clear.
