I ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO ADD THIS: CATS AND LAUNDRY ROOMS ARE NOT A GOOD MIX!
I learned this 40 years ago after my cat ingested a cleaning product after walking on a few grains of it that had fallen on the floor, stuck to her paw and then were licked off.........NEVER AGAIN was any cat allowed in there.
The same can happen with a drop of liquid, or a spot of foam cleaner.
It only takes one lesson like this to leave an indelible mark in your memory: laundry rooms should be a "no fly zone" for our cats!
the more i learn about (some) people, the more i luv my cats
