In doing a recent load of mixed cotton laundry, a cat named Gus did the unthinkable.

“He completely forgot to add a color catcher — you know, that thing that prevents the dyes from bleeding into other fabrics,” says Lauren Singleton, who discovered the mixed load Tuesday morning.

No word yet on whether there’s been a color transfer. “We’ll only really know after they come out of the dryer,” says Singleton. “It certainly didn’t help that he mixed himself in there with the clothes.”
