Do cats ever learn?!

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
So after last months little escapade of Murphy jumping on the loo and falling down it head first and having to have a very much unwanted bath, you would have thought he would have learned the bathroom is a place that the horrid stuff we called water lives ... but ohhhhh NO.

Here I am thinking, I'll have a nice bath. Run it, walk out the bathroom where there are no cats at this point in to the wardrobe to grab a towel, when I hear this massive "SPLASH".

I run in to the bathroom, just in time to see Winston running out to catch up to his skin that has a good 5 meters start on the rest of his body and Murphy doing the doggy paddle around my bath!!!

I grab him out, smelling a bit sweeter, and wrap him in the towel I just got for me! Thank God I only have my baths luke warm!!!

He's now sitting on my bed, very sheepishly drying him self in my towel assisted by Winston.

I swear, Murphy is the clumsy kid in the play ground, he's always tumbling off things. He is the cat that does NOT land on his feet!

I have a feeling that any future bath times might be a bit harder then they were going to be 30 minutes ago lol.

These kittens are giving me grey hairs!!!

They always find something to get into, don't they? I just looked up to see little Garfield sitting above me in the rafters . The big cats always get up there via the stairs outside the bedroom but Garfield and the other kittens have no access to the ceiling... or so I thought.

hehe You're welcome!

He's now asleep in his little donut bed with two towels all wrapped around him. .... A little bit fluffier and softer, Smelling like Melon and Cucumber and a with a little less dignity

That was funny!

They learn - when they're ready too! Don't forget - cats are stubborn - it's part of their charm!

heh I was trying to get a picture of Winston cleaning Murphy ... and got this "look" from Murphy LOL. I think he's mad at his Mum!! .. that's one of the best dirty looks I got from a cat!

Aww, they're cute.

I've pretty much decided that no, cats really do not learn. They have a selective memory that only works for "there's food here". Or maybe it's just pure stubbornness. Either way you have to love them and their goofy antics.

Great story, and well told!

Running water has an almost hypnotic effect on my Sabina...she made the same mistake yours did...but only once!

I LOVE the way you told that story- you had me laughing soo hard!! It reminds me of my last bath- only instead of a curious kitten- i had my huge Australian Shepherd, Fosters try something similar! A few months earlier i had gone to the semi-annual sale at Bath & Body works and while i was there i got one of their cute rubber duckies. Well- that night i decided to take a bath and just for fun- i squeaked the duck. In RUNS Fosters and into the tub he went with me

im afraid to say that "my" bath times are usually 5 mins if im lucky as Indie loves to play in my bath And he is beginning to teach Ember this annoying habit i've tried keeping the door shut, bathing when i have just put food no but he just sits at the door whining and bumping the door until i let him or them in it's a very good job he's cute

I'd have thought that after all those incidents, you would have learned to keep the door closed!!!!

Are your kittens related to mine? I had a similar toilet incident with Pekoe, and he is still entranced by the bath water (though he's not fallen in.... yet).

They're adorable though. I love the little guy all wrapped up.
