I'll go ahead and tell one of my gripes about the only cat I haven't mentioned much, Trigger, a male Tom, NOT nuetered, completly lovable clown. He is so calm about anything, when I clip his nails I use an electric file to make them even so they don't tear, and he will lay on his back and let me do it without any fuss at all. The one bad habit he developed for a short period of time was quite funny in a way. Our bathroom door didn't latch completly and Trigger would start at the bottom of the stairs and come running up them as fast as he could. The way our house was situated right in line with the top of the stairs is the bathroom door. So Trigger would fly up the stairs and you would hear him coming, but much to my suprise, one day he jumped all four feet on the door and pushed it open. well, when he figured out he could do this he repeated it alot, no matter how much we scolded him. The funniest time was when my ex-boyfriend came over and Trigger decided to interupt him, lol. You talk about mad, My b/f left so quick, lol I'll never forget it.

I live with my mom and am 16 years old. We haven't had the money yet and things are really tight on us. We are planning on it bc we don't want kittens, but right now it isn't an option. He hasn't started spraying and that was our other big concern, but he probably won't get fixed until I can get a job and pay for it myself

He was just helping you get rid of the guy!
I cannot believe he so calmly lets you file his nails like that! Wow, I'm lucky if I can hold mine still enough to quickly clip their claws, let alone having them nicely filed!

We have the same problem at our house. Can't go to the bathroom at all without ktity company And if I manage to get in there without being followed then all I hear from the other side of the door is long, loud, irritated meows..not to mention paws flying in under the door. Don't know what I'm going to do with those two. At least they don't do it when we have company, just when it's my bf or myself.

I shut the door when I go into the bathroom.. but my mum leaves it open a crack when she goes in.. and she gets at least 2 visitors in there with her.
The bathroom door is shut all of the time because one of the boys likes to pee on the bathmat.. so whenever its open they want to explore!

The oldest little girl I have, Trinity, is bad about wanting in too, and when you stand up and flush the toilet she will jump up there and watch. She is fascinated with it.

None of the doors (barring the front door) in my apartment stay shut, so I gave up on shutting the bathroom door a while back. Right now (I realized after having a friend over last weekend) one needs to move the bath mat to close the door, because it's too tall.

My kitties love to watch me, too. They love watching me unroll toilet paper, and they're facinated by the noises that the toilet makes. They've never actually seen what goes on (my kiddo brothers' cat got sick because would *only* drink toilet water, so I keep the lid shut), but they always hop on the litter box right next to the toilet to watch. I occasionally need to move them in order to finish my business.

Girlie Q, You have the most adorable kittens! The tabby (Bella?) looks so much like Trigger when he was a baby. Wow she's cute!!!

Well, I took a hot bath today (rare for me, I usually do showers,) to try to ease my back since I was on a ladder most of the morning and into the afternoon putting up recessed lights in the kitchen (I'll do the final hook-up tomorrow.)

I had two cats on the side of the tub watching the water, trying to paw at it and taking a few laps; and a dog (Pekingese) guarding the the tub . Kellie usually doesn't follow me into the bathroom like that, but I guess she doesn't trust the kitties LOL and wanted to keep them in line.

the last time I took a bath Trigger followed me too, lol. He jumped on the edge of the tub and I actually picked him up and put him in the bath with me, He smelled like Strawberries for 2 days, lol. I don't know of any cat that is as calm as him, He isn't neutered, he still has claws, the works, and he will let me do anything to him. I can toss him in the air and catch him, clip his nails without any problems, and as of now, put him in the bathtub and he doesn't even offer to scratch me. He is so well behaved, I love it, and I've never heard of any cat, especially a male being that laid back.

I do not dare leave the bathroom door closed. I would hear the most ungodly and indignant Siamese yowl!!!

That sounds like Trinity and Trigger, they will sit there and wail if I go in and close the door... But they don't do that to anyone else

Buddy is the same way. I can bath him, do just about anything, and he lets me and does not scratch at all. He has even let my 2 and 6 year old kids dress him up and put him in their toy stroller, and he fell asleep

PS. If you check with your local shelter, and www.petassistance.org they can help you find a low cost vet or spay/nueter clinic. The local low cost vet info was given to me by them and he neuters for only $30.

Thanx for the advice on the Vet, I've done a few interviews now So I can hopefuly find a job and get it taken care of. I hope so bc they are all getting older now. My new excersion is going to be trying to Toilet train all three of them at the same time, even the little stray with her inferiority complex, it should be interesting. Trigger is a little shy of kids, but he deals with them, at least he doesn't scratch them. I hope you took pictures of your kids wheeling your cat around in a stroller, that would be priceless, lol Wish me luck on the potty training I'm making the first steps of a long process tonight.
