Cat Interferes with Washing Machine

My adopted cat made one of our washing machines his home. He loves to sleep among dirty laundry. I made one of our old washing machines as a hamper for storing soiled clothes, and I am using an automatic one which is more comfortable to use. This morning, I inspected it thinking the spin drying was finished, but when I lifted the cover, I found out there's so much water in it. I thought there was an error in the system. I restarted it, then left. Later, when I inspected, I found the cat on top of the cover of the washing machine and he could had stepped on the pause/stop button that's why the machine stopped. So I always cover the buttons with a large basin so he could not climb over it and meddle with my washing.

Pets are fun but they can interfere with the regular routine. My cat was always too lazy to jump all the way up onto the washing machine. She preferred to leave her hair all over the sofa.

So true,because having a pet means additional responsibility too. So I made another bedding for him there.

What a nuisance this would be. I'm glad you found out what happened to the washing cycle.

Yes, so I had to reset it again. I just covered the top cover with a big basin so he won't step on the buttons.

Yes, it is true, sometimes I can not just go out because my dog will dash out and it is so hard to catch him.

Freya the Catblog Cat recently took over my ironing board. I think there is a cat conspiracy to stop Humans washing clothes!

We decided to adopt it to :guard" our house from snakes. I fear snakes and they say snakes fear cats.
