I washed them yesterday. I washed them in a container using Oxyclean powder, Dawn dishwashing detergent and a scrub brush. They were filthy. And after I washed them, I put them in the washing machine to get them rinsed better than I could by hand. Then I hung them by their laces to dry.
I took them from their drying spot this morning to wear them. (I get more done when I wear shoes, I can't figure that out. I hate wearing shoes.) I set them down to go get a clean pair of socks.
When I returned, less than a minute, SOME CAT HAD PEED ON MY NICE CLEAN SHOES!!!!!
I looked around. The only cat in sight was Charlie, in the same position he had been in when I left the room. It wasn't Charlie. There was no other cat around.
I cleaned the small urine spot from my clean shoes, grumbling the entire time.
Gotta love 'em.
