Aby-a-Day – July 17: It’s so perfect, it’s hard to believe it wasn’t meant for cats!

We have this awesome little cloth basket/box.

It was originally a gift basket filled with cheese, crackers and wine that my boss got for his birthday.

When he emptied the contents, he asked me if I wanted it.

I saw its potential instantly and, of course, snapped it up and brought it home. I put it on one of the window seats.

As it happens, one of my friend Kate’s Big Daddy catnip pads fits perfectly inside. And it’s not the only thing that fits perfectly inside, either.

This basket is perfectly cat shaped.

I call it the “cat loaf pan.”
