Shower curtain/liner... UGH!!!!
Anyone have issues with their cats and shower curtains and shower liners?? Apollo shreds every shower liner I buy, from thin ones to thick, heavy duty ones. He even chews on the edges when he feels like it. It's pretty counter-productive, having a shredded shower liner with big, gaping holes in it.
I just bought a new, beautiful shower curtain. It's white with a biiiiiiiiig silhouette of a branchy tree. Within minutes of putting it up, Apollo and all 10lbs of himself climbed right up the curtain and tore some of the thread. Butt head!!!!!
He hangs out in the tub a lot, mostly after I just step out of the shower. He drinks from the leaky faucet and rolls around on the wet tub-pad. His favorite thing to do is hide behind the curtain when I'm doing my business and swat at me when he can reach, lol.
I usually try to pull both the liner and curtain up over the shower bar so it's off the floor where he cant reach, but it will get mildewy and I can't stand that.
I've been trying to figure out what to do! Does anyone have any suggestions? Closing the bathroom door off is not an option; it does not latch unless I stuff a towel at the top corner and then I have to fight to get it open. PLUS, there is no air circulation in there at all and will get humid and yucky in there if its not aired out daily.
I try to let go of the fact that I want to have nice things, because I know I live with 2 cats. I'm mostly worried one of them will get tangled in the shredded curtain liner or maybe swallow bits of plastic.
