Bathroom Tales or is it "Tails?"

What is it about cats and bathrooms? I know lotsa cats like them. My Lewis just has to come into the bathroom. My door doesn't close very tightly so everytime I have to go, Lewis trots right to the bathroom. I really don't mind so much, but for whatever reason, he is exceptionally affectionate then. So now we have a ritual going, which of course, I've reinforced. But I am always amazed as to "Why the bathroom?" as I am just as affectionate no matter where I am; for whatever reason he thinks the bathroom is where it's at. Silly, silly kitty. And then there's Wallace, my toilet paper fiend, who got into the toilet paper... again. All I can do is laugh as I know better than to leave it out. I have a place for it so he can't get to it but today I forgot. We were gone afternoon and when we came home, there was toilet paper, shredded to bits in the bathroom, hallway, living room and on the couch. Wallace, I'm sure, had a most splendid time. What could I say? I just told him that I hoped he had fun!

Mine become exceptionally affectionate when I'm in the bathroom also. I think it's because we are a captive audience.

If you can't spoil a pet, there is no use in having one.

No kidding, everyone comes and visits me in the bathroom. And if the door is closed, they either sit outside and wait, or a little paw comes under the door to wave at me. Three of my cats actually want to get into my lap, too...lol...especially when I get up in the middle of the night.

Same here. My three are in the bathroom with me every morning as I try to ready for work, vying for my attention, playing in the sink, hopping in and out of the wet tub, of course Billie winds up on my left hip as I apply mascara with my right hand. Then JoJo start with the water. I have to turn the spigot on so she can lap the water, then Big Tom muscles her out of the way, Billie then sneak attacks him, this is nearly every morning. I call it catnastics.

Bathrooms are the "funnest" places for kitties. Everytime I sit on the toilet, they all come in and mill around, looking for petting and talking. It's almost as if tinkling in the toilet is a mating call to them. My Kip just HAS to scratch in the cat litter every time I'm on the toilet. Like he's "burying" whatever I am doing. He's obsessed with rearranging the cat litter anyway. He does it at LEAST 4 or 5 times a day besides when he goes and does something. He's just never happy with the way the others leave it. One licks the shower walls after I'm done in the shower. They sit on every surface watching me do my makeup. It really is phenomenal.

Schnickle always comes in the bathroom when I'm in there. He's rollin all over the place lookin for belly rubs, ear scratches, and just overall affection. Weird thing is, he isnt that affectionate anywhere else.

I alway say "Who's training who!?" Ha Ha. Sounds like everyone--like me-- is trained by their cats to be especially loving when they are in the bathroom!!!
