Since Nina’s been so in to saving the planet lately (and also since our old laundry sorter was very anti-kitten), Husband and I recently upgraded our flimsy, mesh laundry hamper to a fancy woven one (which is decidedly more kitten-friendly).
Poor Nina spent many an evening attacking our meshy laundry area, getting her tiny claws stuck, then crying pitifully until we came to rescue her. I don’t have any pictures of it because frankly, it seemed mean to take a picture of a poor, scaredy, stuck little kitten instead of rescuing her. Plus, the camera always seemed to be in the other room. Humpf.
The problem now is, what do I do with this?
I kept the three sorting bags – they’ll be good for sorting laundry on trips (and decidedly better than the pillow cases I currently use to organize trip laundry). The plastic tubing, which was cracked and taped back together in several places anyway, we recycled, leaving just this bottom bit mesh to deal with.
So, I channeled my inner enviro-kitty and poured myself a glass of champagne.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Drinking champagne has absolutely nothing to do with being an enviro-kitty. Kitties probably shouldn’t drink champagne, actually. Champagne is only for adult human enviro-kitties, kk?
So. Here’s what I did:
1. I folded the meshy mesh in half.
2. I sewed up both sides with my trusty embroidery needle and some scrap yarn.
5. And, since I had a bit of yarn left over, I added a groovy little flower.
