Gray Cat smells like sun-dried sheets
That's the best I can do after spending about 15 minutes yesterday morning after I woke up around 8:30 a.m. with my nose nuzzled in her neck fur.
I decided that once and for all I was going to really try to answer one of Flautist's insistent questions about Gray Cat's smells.
Back story: about two months ago she asked me what Gray Cat's feet smelled like.
I made a good faith effort, I really did, to try to pin it down and give her an answer, but after about 10 minutes patiently exhaling, waiting, and then sniffing her toe and palm pads as carefully as I could, was only able to reply, "They don't have any smell at all. None. Zero."
That was absolutely true.
They still don't, I just checked.
But I digressed.
How does an indoor cat smell so darned good?
I mean, sure, I always have the windows open and she spends plenty of time out in front of the house in her tent, but still.
I hadn't let her outside or opened the windows for a week as of this morning, it's been so hot and humid outside and I'm still a little gun-shy about getting into her tent seeing as my anaphylactic attack — it began almost exactly a week ago to the minute, last Sunday night at precisely this time — seemed to begin as I was lying in the tent with her.
No answer for some mysteries.
The way we like it.

what kind of cat tent do you have? do you like it? your cat doesn't try to destroy/claw it?

I'm sorry, but with my cat's feet in the litter box
a few times a day, I'd rather smell her breath or fur.

Perhaps the tent need to be turned inside out, if that's possible, and hosed off. Or vacuumed well. There may be an accumulation of dander.
Strange that you can sleep with G.C., handle her, live with her, etc., with no adverse reaction.
Could it have been claustrophobia?
