Our Mother is nuts...It was confirmed last night as we all watch The Mother play in the loud, whirly, washy thing in the litter box room. She opened it up and said "what the heck?!" She had put the Hideous Beast's things in there to be whirled in water for awhile to unstinkify them. The Mother pulled a blanket out and it was all covered with white stuff. Everything was covered with white strips of stuff!!! Then, the Mother started laughing which really worried us. She told us she had washed whole roll of paper towels with the Hideous Beast's blankets.
Fortunately, we can order straight jackets online, no questions asked.
