Daniel, I was wondering why you'd say that lint is more preferable than
cat fur? I'd think fur would be a more natural substance in that

etting --

My reasoning is intuitive and possibly wrong. I thought birds would be
disturbed by the scent of a natural predator.

... lint... not that desirable for birds' nests because it could have
dryer-softener chemicals ...

Good point. I didn't consider that angle because I use non-scented laundry
detergent and no dryer-softener products.
