Have you ever been looking for your cat, only to find her curled up in a laundry basket? Laundry baskets are just the right size for your cat and are usually full of items that your cat is accustomed to. If the clothes inside are not clean, they are filled with the scent of all the members of your family. Your cat feels safe encased in those scents. If on the other side, the clothes are clean, they are less full of scent, but many times they are still warm from the dryer which makes them irresistible because cats love warmth. So in one word- it's a win-win situation for your cat.
