My cat locked himself in the bathroom!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I cant believe this happened this morning. I usually keep my master bathroom door closed and Griff was in there when I closed the door when I came out of there this morning and I didnt know.
My daughter was going to get ready for school this morning and went in to get something and the door wouldnt open. Griffin had opened a drawer and the drawers open and block the door when you open them. The door opens inward. I tried everything, taking the doorknob off and trying to close the drawer with a metal clothes hanger that I bent, a stick, you name it. I couldnt get it closed so I had to break through the door with a hammer and close the drawer, so now I have to buy a new door for my bathroom. I'm going today to buy childproof drawer locks for that set of drawers by that door and a new door. I was getting kind of panicky with Griff stuck in there. I'm so glad I got in! I called my husband, and he just laughed and said might of known it was Griff that did it. He gets into everything. Hope the rest of the day goes ok!
I know Griffin thought I was nuts pounding a hole in the door with a hammer!

something similar happened here.. except it there was no animal on the other side.. we ended up taking the door off by its hinges.

Sorry to laugh, but I love the way you explained it!

I bet Griffin was having so much fun seeing the chaos he'd caused!

we had something similiar happen a few years ago.
I had a furbaby named Chance (if it wasnt for us taking him in he wouldn't have had a chance in the world). Somehow he got stuck inbetween the cabinet walls and we had to lift the whole counter top off! I still to this day dont know HOW he got in there!

I am cracking up at your description of the chain reaction that Griffin caused. You have to get a new door?
What a sweet little kitty.

I'm assuming you panicked and broke the door rather than simply take the hinges off!

No more scary your meowmy!

Spyder had a spell of shutting himself in the bathroom, but luckily there is nothing to block the way.

You broke through the door?!! That's one impressive escapade for Griffen. I'll bet he's bragging to his cat friends big time about this!

No I didn"t panic that bad, the hinge pins where you take the door off are on the inside of the bathroom. No way to get the door off other than what I did. Believe me I was thinking about all my options. Even taking the doorknob off and trying to close the drawer didnt work at all. It was too far down to the drawer.

I would have done the same thing!! I'm sorry to laugh but that is so funny! I told Eric my hubby and he just shook his head and said the things we do for our cats.

Wow, what a morning!! PushyLady is right - Grif sure earned his bragging rights on this one! BTW, I went & checked my bathroom door, and its hinges are on the inside too, which is great if you're locked in, not locked out!
