My Cats Locked Themselves in the Bathroom

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
This is just too funny and I have to post this. I was sitting here browsing the internet and I thought my boyfriend was using the bathroom because I heard the door shut. Then, my phone rang so I got up to answer it. However, when I got to the phone, my boyfriend had already answered it. I said to him "I thought you were in the bathroom". He responds "I thought you were in the bathroom". I checked the bathroom and I noticed both of my cats sticking their paws out from underneathe the bathroom door!! Apparently, they were both playing and one of them shut the door!!! I started laughing so hard. They are fine but I am just glad I was here to witness it.

Its weird how cats can open and close doors cause my kid and half-kid do the same thing..... when they are playing with their toys and its by our bathroom doors... I an d my house mate have separate bathrooms so its twice the fun for them.

As long as we are not expecting guests out bathroom door gets tied open with an old bathrobe tie. Excalibur has just locked himself in there to many times to count. The other kitties do it sometime, but with Excalibur it is a constant!

Leo and Shelby locked themselves in the bathroom once too. The problem was, I had gone to my parents house overnight and they managed to somehow close the bathroom door and then open the bottom drawer on the vanity, so that it was completely blocking the door. The door itself wasn't locked.....but I couldn't get it open enough to push the drawer back in and I wasn't able to get the kitties to understand me saying, "just push the drawer back in."

After trying various things with no luck.....I called the Fire Department! I was laughing and told them, "My cats have locked themselves in the bathroom and I can't get them out. And PLEASE don't use the sirens when you come to my house."

They come screeching up to my house less than 5 minutes later with the sirens blaring! (I was so embarrassed) All my neighbors came out to see what the big crisis was. And of course the firemen were cracking up. The first guy tried to get the door open with no luck. Then one of the others suggested taking the door off the frame.....but the hinges were on the inside. The third guy said he had a tool in the truck that might work. So he went outside to the firetruck and got a long skinny metal stick of some sort. He was able to get it in the crack in the bathroom door and push the drawer in and free Leo and Shelby.

The firemen just kept laughing and had a good time with this call. I told them, "I'm so sorry....I know you guys must have better things to do with your time....but I really appreciate it." One of them said, "No problem. I can honestly say.....this is the best call we've had today."

Hehehe thats so funny, bless them though..those fire fighters sound lovely and i can see why it was there best call of the day. Glad you managed to get them free and they were ok *hugs*

And Miss Charlotte, My cats often do simular things and with the bathroom. i think they like that room because they seem to do it often no matter how hard we try. The funniest thing is they really like the bath so i'll often find them in there. And sometimes when i am having a bath they will come in and walk along the bath....I hate to think how they'd react if they fell in...lol! oooohhh and toliet paper is never safe I am always finding them around the house all messed up, i still to this day can't figure out how they keep getting there paws on them!

Also my cats have figured out our doors, that if they bang them hard enough together they can get in, but then the door shuts and they can't get out and you'll hear them scratching and trying to get out...bless the little sweet hearts!

Sending you and everyone else lots of hugs

Tony and I pick around and say that Conner is an escape artist, because he will stick out his little lock picking claw and go to work,,lol!! OUr living room door to out side,,he can open it!! So we have to keep it locked, I catch him all the time standing on his back feet and he sticks his claws in the side of the door and backs up!!! I guess it's just a weak door, but gosh!!! If we forget to lock the door, we come home all the time to find the door open and COnner sitting in the doorway(behind the screen door which is easily pushed open, but thankfully he doesnt go out,,just sits and enjoys the view)just waiting for us!! He is a little master mind!!!

Great stories. We've had problems with that, too, so now every inside door has a door stopper "wedged" under it on both sides.

I've been very lucky with so far that neither of them have "discovered" the toilet paper roll in the bathroom. However, my shower loofa (or whatever it's called) has made it's way out of the bathroom on several occasions. Charlotte was obsessed with it for a long time!!

What these little sweeties get up to!!! Suzy and Cindy aren't much concern in this department, but Fawn makes up for them.

She's into everything. I swear the ONLY reason she doesn't open doors is that the knobs are all too high off the floor for her. Too many times, when she wants out, she's stretched to full length and then some, looking at me as much as to say, "I'd open it myself, Mum, but I can't reeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaach!"

Nothing on a counter or table top is safe. Correction: nothing SMALL. She loves to see things fall. [bat,bat,bat] We have to tuck combs back out of sight, or they will travel all over the house. This morning I came out of the bedroom to see on the dining room floor the wooden base, the little cushion and the bowl of a small Tibetan bell, that lives on the tea wagon just inside the door. The little clapper was nowhere to be seen. I asked Fawn what she had done with it. She didn't answer. A little later, as we were finishing brunch in the kitchen, I looked through into the dining room, saw herself stretched out snoozing, and about a foot away from her, the little clapper. Things disappear and reappear.

Don't you just love their antics?
