The bathroom seems to be Rockybeans' favorite room in the house, whether I'm in there or not.
When he's alone, it's bedlam. He'll kick his litter all over, and he loves to jump in the tub, knock the soap around, and bang against the walls as he jumps up until he can finally reach my spongy thingy and hide it somewhere else in the house. But before leaving the bathroom to hide it, he must swing on my shower curtain a bit. I have been going through 3 shower curtains a week, so I've taken to buying them up at the dollar store to keep a good supply handy. (He does that swingy thing on my clothes hanging in the closet too if I forget to close the door tightly enough. I would have named him Tarzan, except I had a Tarzan before.
Then, if I was stupid enough to forget to close the lid of the toilet, he will play with the toilet water, get it all over himself, and then insist on being held and cuddling, and getting me all wet.
That's if he's alone in there.
If I go in to take a shower, he runs up and down the edge of the tub, seemingly fascinated by the water he sees splashing down. He does this intermittently with trying to play "Hit The Momma" with me through the shower curtain from both the tub edge and the sink. As soon as I shut the water off, he jumps in and plays with and splashes the water going down the drain, including having to roll in it and get all wet.
Then there's the toilet. He loves the toilet.
If anyone goes towards the bathroom he will first assume they are going to use the toilet. He dashes in the bathroom first to the corner, rolls over (invariably getting the litter he previously kicked around when you weren't there all over himself), spreads his legs, and insists on getting a belly rub. After you rub his belly you are allowed to sit down and do your thing, while he jumps up into the sink where he curls up and spreads his legs again. You must rub his belly while you do whatever else it is you are doing. When you stand, he jumps down, stands on the edge of the seat, and watches the water flush down. Then before you leave he jumps back in the sink and stares at the faucet, because you are expected to turn on the water so he can play with that too, drink some of it, and try to retrieve any water that has gone down the drain, sticking his paw and leg as far down as he can.
Then you can leave.
The one thing you guys made me realize is I haven't taken a full bath since Rocky arrived, only showers. I don't know what he'd do in a bathtub, but thank you for reminding me. I will now slow my life down enough to take a bath and discover what other tricks he can teach me to do, and bedlam he can cause.
Good thing he's so cute. I tell him that all the time and he just laughs.
