Now just a darn minute... you have a problem with kittens in baskets????

But in any event-- from your description, couldn't you scan that print, pull it into photoshop, clean it up, then print it again by inkjet? (But in any event #2, doesn't the moisture in a bathroom kill art of any kind unless it's sealed airtight?)
