Well... we used to have a kitty that thought the armpits of my dirty t-shirts were the best thing ever.

Tell that to my cat.

I've owned two cats. I loved them both. They ruined two pairs of $500 dress shoes with their piss. The really fun part was I walked to work so I didn't notice until I was in a closed conference room. I started keeping back up shoes at the office.

Yeah, why do these dog loving "scientists" create studies to reinforce their biased beliefs?

I've got four cats, and all are obsessed with our stuff. Our long hair all-white princess, Snowbell, insists on sitting on the opposite end of the couch from Mrs LesserEvil, with her paw on the arm rest, but sometimes at night, she sleeps on my computer chair. Garfield (yes, orange tabbie) sometimes sleeps on top of my shoes. Meatball has taken to sleeping in my infant granddaughter's pack-and-play when she's not here, and the old dame of the house, Shadow, will settle on any clothes left on the floor.

It's almost as if this sort of thing is heavily dependent on how they are raised.

I had a cat who forced me to keep my shoes on the top shelf of my closet.

If I didn't he would shove his head in a shoe and drool.  And I don't mean just drool a little.  If I forgot and left a pair out overnight, then the next morning I'd stick a foot in, and it would go *squish*...

Seriously, the stinkier (or more expensive) the shoe, the better.  It was like catnip to him.

This guy doesn't settle for just the shirts. He likes to rub his whole head in it.

This research is flawed.  One cat is in the laundry room, sleeping in the dirty laundry basket.  My other is upstairs sleeping on the bed.  More to the point. Sleeping on my wife's cloths she wears to bed, that's is on her pillow.

The third one ,while not actively sleeping on our clothes, will jump into the same laundry basket in the laundry room.
