8-Bit gets what 8-Bit wants...

post #1 of 13

That is the first rule of living with him. I was sitting in the bathtub nursing a sore back and neck when I hear a SLAM! Right after I hear a: meow?

The door was shut. I figure that I only have a few more moments to go in my bath so I'll just let him sit outside. Then I see a paw get shoved under the door.

Oh wait, it gets better: SLAM SLAM SLAM. MEOW!!!! RRRROOOWWW! MEOW! SLAM.

Imagine 15 pounds of cat on the other side of the door. He's upset because you've shut him out. Apparently I committed the great cat sin.

So yes I got up, dripping wet and opened the door. He trilled his displeasure at me when he waltzed in.

Yes, Earl learned that lesson as well. Only Ginger and/or Mojo ripped the carpet up by the door (linoleum in the bathroom, so there's a metal strip that holds the carpet in place - no real damage to the carpet thank goodness!). They were mad that he went to take a shower and closed the door.

LOL! I'm glad I'm not the only one who's done that. Stimpy doesn't appreciate being locked out either.

We did loose our carpet at the bedroom door. You do not shut Takoda in with you and Magnum on the other side! That is the biggest NO NO in our house they must remain together at all times.

Noodles will get the door banging back and forth like that if I sleep too late.

I don't even bother try to use the bathroom with the door closed. I know I'll have very upset kitties. We only do it when we have people over, and at least that way they have other people to entertain them.

8-Bit is better than a travelling circus.

Mika, our little girl with no voice, certainly can make herself heard with her little huffing noises. I went to the bathroom in the basement last night when I got home from work (our daughter was in the other one) and rushed in, closed the door and proceeded to do my business. Then I hear the little huffing noise outside the door, raised up and opened the door and there is Mika who promptly comes in and gets comfy on my lap. Bear in mind that this is our daughter's kitty and is not overly affectionate with my hubby or me - until we go to the basement. There is something about the basement that draws her to us. When I go to do laundry she runs after me and "asks" to be picked up and loved on. When I go back upstairs she's her usual independent self. Go figure!

LOL, ditto that! I live alone and haven't had a moment of privacy in the bathroom in 15 years. Even when the homecare girl is here to help me with a shower Chynna is sitting by the bathroom door meowing at her wondering what she's doing to me, LOL And Abby is laying in the hallway not far away watching too. Goofy cats.

At least you can close your door

I have a pocket-door for the bathroom that does NOT lock. When I am taking a shower/bath/using the bathroom, the kits AND the dog know how to slide it open

If the kids aren't here, I don't even bother to shut it anymore

Oh my goodness, any closed door in my house is a declaration of war, with both kitties preparing for an all out assault. It generally takes about 5 minutes for them to get their point across and all doors are reopened.

I don't close doors any more. I live by myself so it doesn't really matter. But when guests come over and the bathroom door gets closed, both my boys run over to the door as fast as they can and meow until it gets opened again. Way to make my guests feel uncomfortable boys!

Riley actually got shut out of the bedroom for a couple hours this morning

I had a rought night and wasn't sleeping well and was trying to squeeze in a couple more hours this morning and little monster boy kept jumping on the dresser, knocking things off (a pen, my watch, etc.) then he would run crazy chasing them around the floor.

After about 30 minutes of this I finally put him out and shut the door. It was the first time he's ever been shut out of the bedroom and when I did get up and open the door, he just lay there looking all sad
