Ragdoll kitten Efy washes herself in a small basket Video source: "Frits en Elise Hendrix" on youtube
There are cats that simply don’t like humans to interfere in their problems. Just like Efy here who is a one man show and can do all his stuff himself. Seems like a hard fella there. Sitting in the basket all it needs is someone to not disturb him. This is one of the weirdest things cats do. They like to house themselves into tiny spaces such as boxes, shelves and in case of Efy, in baskets too. If you don’t find your cat, check your laundry room. Maybe he’s cleaning himself there just like Efy is doing. You go Efy.
