They are worse than children. I always have the 2 dogs and 2 cats gathered around me- are they afraid I'm gonna disappear? are they protecting me from evil things?

This is one of my favorite pictures. I used to have a few cats who liked to swing in the hammock my pants made when on the toilet. So endearing....

It's called "bathroom love" in our house! They are extremely affectionate in the bathroom for some reason. Samson and Pumpkin help me brush my teeth which is not easy with a cat on each side of the sink. Angel finds it necessary to stand on my feet. If I use the blow dryer then Samson insists on being blown dry too! I've had mascara on my cheek, brow, nose and when I'm lucky I manage to get it on my lashes. And no matter how many times I've told them to close the door behind them because Mommy doesn't want to be cold getting out of the shower...they never do it.

And poor Sammy doesn't come in the bathroom very much since he fell out of the window a couple of years ago.

A few years ago I was in the shower (ok, I confess, I've been in there since!). When I turned around to rinse shampoo out of my hair and eyes, I saw something (someone) at the back of the shower - and since I am blind as a bat I actually had to bend over to see who it actually was! It was my Mr. Smokey, soaking wet, cowering there with his little eyes clamped shut. I actually had to turn the water off, grab my towel and towel him off, pitch him out of the shower, and finish my shower. I had no idea he was in there, I couldn't have heard him and I started closing the door after that. He's absolutely a velcro kitty anyway, but a shower? I literally never saw that one coming!!!!

I usually have at least one of them, sometimes both, when I am using the toilet. I try to keep them out when I am taking a shower because they cry and jump at me through the shower curtain, but as soon as I am done they are at the door crying. I let them in and they sit on the shower bench and watch the water go down the drain. Marvin likes to "help" my husband use the toilet and has almost fallen in a couple of times.

I'm not a pet owner. So this behavior is something pet owners find amusing and encourage?

Otherwise, I would think you could just push the cat outside the door and shut it.

Hehe, OP!

Yep, every time.... one, two or three of them follow me in...


But only one stays when I take a relaxing bath-
he goes to sleep on the rug next to the tub...now that is a real pal.

If we had to explain it you wouldn't understand anyway. Only pet owners and lovers get it.


Sometimes I soak in the tub after a hard day and usually one of the other is sitting on the edge of the tub with me. They love dipping their paw in the water and licking it off. They seem fascinated by the water.

Nope. Scooter usually gets there first..he speeds past me then falls on the rug and attacks it.

When I shower Judy has to check to be sure I'm doing it right, funny thing she HATES water - I think she learned that from Joe cause Orion couldn't care less. We have species identity disorder here..,,dog behaves like a cat, cats behave like a dog and human, well I'm completely lost, LOL

Love Species Identify Disorder- SID- it is very bad in my house. Nobody adheres to their proper behavior or obeys the rules. What's a mother to do?
