Cats on Tuesday - Cat Poses and a Question





One of Bella's favourite spots...on top of the shower cubicle.


Mitzi, looking cute.


Bella, making a decision of some sort.


Mitzi, doing her Meerkat thing.
My question is...why do cats follow one into the bathroom? I go to sit and have a cat keeping guard on either side of me...or else they use the litter tray, which is in the same room. (I have to warn people to use the loo, not the litter tray). It seems to me that, according to cats, the bathroom is one place where I'm unable to escape if they decide to jump on my knee (most disconcerting) or have a wrestle around my feet, using my legs as stretching posts or just hassling me to feed them.
I had a cat that used to jump up onto the toilet seat just as I would go to sit down...can you imagine what that felt like? I'm actually quite surprised I didn't knock him into the bowl. I guess that would have cured him, though.
So that's it...today's burning question. I suspect the answers may be lifechanging...

Billy and Lilly have told me that they know you are going to be sat down and immobile for a while, and its a good opportunity to get some extra love. They do the same!

I thought I'd try to close them out of the bathroom when I am there. What a mistake! The yowls and scratches! And now it's gotten so that if they are not there in the bathroom with me after work, then I feel unloved!! what beautiful photos, Robyn!

No answer here but it does almost always happen.
Annie always jumps up into the sink right next to the stool. She sits there and just watches. I have no unearthly reason WHY!! Sandy

my mommy locks me out and i yowl, cry and dig at the door. she can't figure out why i freak out so badly.

she does this because i used to try and jump on her lap...i won't do it on the sofa, but on the toilet, it was OK...

You both look adorable.

We follow our humans into the bathroom too. It's just what we do!
