Most attics/lofts have exposed roof-insulation and dust from this rock-wool
all over the place, and IIRC the stuff is seriously injurious to health!
Always put on a dust mask before opening the hatch!
the only play that trick on you so they can get a free lift down &
leaving them up there longer means more spiders eaten. My brothers cat
goes up and down there like a yo-yo. The steps are wooden though
Our cat has had a severe fascination with our loft since last year when I
fitted a new hatch and ladder.
If I so much as pick up the hook she will be stood underneath the hatch
wailing to be let up there and if I pull the ladder down she will fight me
to the death to be first to climb up.
I let her up there the first time as I hoped it would cure her fascination -
how wrong I was ! It turned out that she could squeeze through the tiny gaps
in both ends of the party wall and proceeded to not just investigate my loft
but next doors too - and very probably the rest of the terrace.
I blocked up the gaps but if she manages to sneak up there now she will hide
amongst all the accumulated crap that I have up there and refuses to come
down for hours.
And she doesn't eat spiders !!
