We don't actually love this item. In fact, we wonder what sort of person would spend $2000 on an ironing machine. Or have space for one? Probably the same type of person who could afford to hire a damn maid.

We'd never heard of the Grandinroad catalog until, well, today, but we just had to throw in this "Cat Fun Tunnel".

Also, and possibly more importantly, we misread the US Weekly-inspired, handwritten call-out as "A Barrel Of Pussy", not "A Barrel of Purrs". Same difference, we suppose.
