10 Adorable Cats Who Refuse to Let You Do Any Laundry


How often have you found yourself ready to start a load of laundry or fold a freshly dried pile, only to find your cats making themselves comfortable on your clothes? It’s like all our fabric is secretly lined with kitty magnets.

Despite being frustrating (especially if the laundry just got cleaned), there’s also no denying our furbabies look absolutely precious all curled up on our clothing and linens. It also makes sense to anyone who’s asked themselves, “Why is my cat in my laundry?” They likely immediately answered their own question, “Oh right, because it’s super soft and cozy.” 

On top of that, our clothes understandably smell like us, making the items all the more enticing for our felines to snuggle into when we aren’t able to pause our chores for a cuddle session. So really, spotting your cat in piles of laundry is just another sign that they really love you!

Take a look to see some of the most adorable cats who adorably refuse to let their owners do laundry.
