Most cats I’ve known have loved shoes–especially if they’re old and smelly. The shoes, I mean, not the cats.
Our cat Peep is a little devil when it comes to shoes. She has untied my shoes while I was wearing them. As a kitten, she once pulled out one of Patty’s shoelaces and ate it. Try to guess who wound up with the job of checking you-know-what to make sure the shoelace came out. Which it did, thank heaven.
Note that the maker of this video was careful to remove the laces from these shoes.
