    I think it's a ragdoll trait. I had one that would get in the shower. So funny.

    no you have it all wrong they are trying to lower the water level so you dont drown --the third is trying tough love 'well if she is silly enough to keep getting into the water she will just have to learn the hard way--but ill stay close in case we have to save her'

    LOL. My cat would probably due this if I took baths. She however feels the need to be in the bathroom at all times that I am in there. Then she wants to drink cold water out of the sink faucet. Life would be boring without my cats.

    I haven't been to the bathroom by myself for so long I'm afraid that should I actually get to lock the door, my two guards would be traumatized at me being by myself!! No telling what might happen to me without them!! Fredrica, the white little lady Persian, would sit there staring at the door, willing someone to come and open it for her. Koko, the half Siamese, would try to grasp the door handle, then stick a toe under the door and try to pull it open, then hurl his body against it to try to force it open. By then I'm usually so amused or irritated that I'll open it for them and march out, to their disgust. The fact I have a jar of treats for them in there might have something to do with it too.

    Yeah - what is it like to be alone in the bathroom? Teddi drinks from my sink and Isla comes running if you are on the commode for her "slap butt" treatment of her big "hams" LOL We give her both hands slapping (gently of course!) alternately on the flanks.

    even after he fell in he still would stand on the outside and reach a paw under the running water...

    it stopped when i got them a drinking fountain...yep spoiled...couldnt have a regular plain old water bowl...had to have one with running water (altho it did clear up his frequent UTI's)

    My two cats, Bitty and Willie, also go in the bathroom with me. Bitty likes to drink from the sink faucet and Willie off the shower floor. If Willie happens to get shut out, he rattles the door, cries, and/or shoves his toys underneath the door....anything for attention! Bitty will just sit patiently outside, but occasionally will stick a paw under the door and wiggle it around to remind me that she's waiting for me.

    If I don't leave the door cracked a little so my two can go in and out while I'm in the bathroom they scratch at the door until it opens. Just no privacy when you have cats.

    My Maine Coon is a faucet drinker. My one ragdoll, Rhumba a bluepoint mitted, insists on having a dish of water next to the kitchen sink. My other raggie, Tango a seal bicolor, insists on one next to the bathroom sink. This is in addition to the regular water dishes on the floor. Neither of my raggies are faucet drinkers only the MC. The stupid MC plays with the water in the dish on the floor. He scoops his paw in and spills it all over the floor. He is a big goof. I am considering one of those drinkwell fountains.

    BTW how did you do at the show back in February?
