Cat Lady Lesson #9
Cats apparently find bathing or showering a fascinating concept, and possibly maddening, as in the above video. While Grant and Katniss don’t meow like these lovely Siamese, they do attempt to investigate the oddity of someone using water to become clean.
I made the mistake of leaving the door open while bathing the other day, and I was quickly joined by both cats. Grant jumped onto the sink and prepared to leap into the tub although he hesitated at the last minute. Katniss, prowling along the perimeter of the tub, eventually attempted to jump in with me, but I managed to catch her at the last minute.
After that experience, I closed the door. Perhaps I didn’t fully close the door this morning, but I found Grant lying beside the toilet when I exited the shower. He was very calm but intensely curious. He quickly left when a drop of water fell on his fur.
So are my leisurely bath times over? Perhaps. I have to admit, though, that I had a smile on my face when I saw Grant waiting for me this morning. And finding a loving kitty who wants to be with you is worth more than any leisure time.
