Adventures With Cats
This strange, rod-like object is threaded through the drawer pulls for a reason. It's called "cat-proofing."
It became necessary because of an adventurous feline. Having decided to play in the bathroom, he chased his catnip mouse behind the door. In the process, he closed the door. That would probably have been all right, but then, he managed to open the bottom drawer, and therein lay the problem. The open drawer blocked the door. I couldn't get in, and the cat couldn't get out.
The only solution involved a step ladder and the removal of the screen from the window. Thank goodness the bathroom has a window and that it was unlocked. I had to shimmy through the window.
The rod has been through the drawer handles ever since!
