I know about cats (and sometimes dogs, gerbils.?) nesting in things,
that's why we hang things... I place the bags over sturdy wooden hangers,
and allow enough room between bags to prevent compression... Any settling
problems will be minor, I usually put bags in the Dryer on "Air Fluff" for
about 15 minutes before use....
