The cushioned basket is a piece of furniture that can be built in the kitchen of a player-owned house with the Construction skill. Cats or pet rocks belonging to anyone can rest inside the basket. Placing a cat on the basket will count as if its following you. Leaving the house will make the cat follow you. Placing a pet rock on the basket will leave it there permanently or until you pick it back up.
