Does your detergent smell like bleach? Some cats have a fondness for the smell of bleach

nope! not at all! i do notice when clean with bleach it does seem to attract all the cats and i have to close them away but i actually use scented liquid like orange or lemon but that doesnt make a difference he adores it whether the dishes be clean or dirty sometimes when i turn around and its empty and ready to be loaded he gingerly is walking around in it! like on the pointy metal parts! it doesnt bother him i dont know why...it reminds me of when a cats in heat(he is fixed) and they are outside and rubbing themselves all over the sidewalk! if he could marry the dishwasher im sure he would lmao!

That's pretty funny b/c usually cats don't like citrussy smells. The only reason behind this that I could think of is if you maybe feed the cat with dishes straight out of the washer- then he associates the smell with food time.

My cats hang around the dishwasher too. Mine want to crawl inside. I think they would rather be my dishwasher.

Maybe some internal noise it makes sounds like purring....

Well, with Loomis it's all about the food...

Sadie also adores the dishwasher (although I can't seem to train her to do the dishes or empty the dishwasher lol). Funny thing is that she doesn't lick any of the dishes -- so, it's not about the food. Instead, she just sorta perches on the inside of the door. Perhaps she just likes to be able to sit in a spot where the humans of the house can't go.

I just had "duh" moment.. If it's right after you wash, maybe because the dishwasher is nice and warm!
