@CODawn thanks!

Tuesday January 10th
I have closed laundry boxes, so Pico doesn't crawl into it and digs in with her claws. But of course she figured out she can open the 'flap' at the front and can climb in. As much that I hate it that my plan failed, I love to see how inventive she is.

My bf's family has a small dog and Potyka inherited one of her beds, but he slept in it maybe twice in total... we made sure it didn't smell like a dog, so our theory is that he doesn't care about it because it's too obviously meant for him to lie on (why would he do that when he can lie on a plastic bag instead? Or on top of the door?!)

But because the bed makes him feel nothing but indifference, we now use it as the laundry basket's cover, and, apart from rare occasions, he does stay away from it. :LOL:

@Mianevem that's a great idea, maybe I should use her iglo she never wants to lie in as laundry basket 🤔
