La toilette Toesday



See my toes? They are not soaking wet but they almost were. You see, the Lap Lady knows better than to close the door on us in the human litterbox room. I usually go in for a few pets and when she has finished and put the lid down I jump up there for another pet.

The other day she was going in to do her business. She put the seat up (the lid is always down), turned to talk to the Tall Man and turned around for quite a shock: me flying through the air with the greatest of ease! She stupidly doubted my abilities because my back paws gripped the back of the seat as my front paws held the back of the tank. Crisis averted. It was a close call but my feet did not touch that icky water.

I don't like to think about wet paws or wet anythings after my Father's Day experience. Therefore, I'm very glad you didn't fall into that bottomless pit (I've checked that place out before).

Once when I was a kitten I thought that I was jumping on the lid but no... I jumped too soon and landed in the water (it was clean water) and I ran like the wind all around the house to get the water off of me. Now I'm 11 and I have never done that again - what do they say? Look before you leap!

Anyway, very nice toes there!

I never thought about jumping into the toilet...but I have always been curious about it!!

Mommy and daddy don't usually let us go into the water closet...I guess it's for good reason....

Those are fine looking toes, and good stop on touching the water in the bean litterbox!
I always have to go in the water litterbox room with Meowmie. It's a big responsibility.

Oh my, Kaze! What a close call!

Good save! But it's not so bad if you fall in - as long as the water is clean. If it isn't, then all of you gets wet because you get a bath. I learned that the hard way.

I did that when I was a kitten. Unlike you, I was not as lucky! You are quite the acrobat!

*whew*, Kaze! That was a close one. I'm not fond of water, either, but my little brother, MaoMao, is. He likes to sit on the toilet and watch it when it flushes. I'm so worried he's going to fall in one of these days!

Purrs and snuggles from Marilyn.

Hmmm...we kinda like to swish our paws around in there (when it's clean of course)! But alas...the lid is usually down.

Junior said...

I am SO glad you didn't fall in that water! That would have been very humiliating.....I bet someone would have laughed at you.

I do believe every cat goes through that experience at least once. I, on the other paw, found myself in the boy's bath a couple of times. I was quite young and the side was slippery. And that last time? I was pushed, I tell you, pushed.
