    All the cats we used to have were originally from Japan and they never did this. Is that because he is American Short Haired kind??LOL

    We haven't started this. My mother cat gets into the tub when it is almost empty and follows the water to the drain, lapping the tub dry!

    Flower used to like to play in the bathtub too. Sometimes he'd take a toy, like one of those plastic balls with the bell in it, and dump it in there. It goes round and round quite nicely and it's hard to lose it in the bathtub!

    Funny you would mention that because just this morning my DH said he was going to look for one for the same reason. :lol:

    Maybe cats are so clever that they know fresh running water tastes better.

    My cat Polly also like to drink from the faucet. She wouldn't get into the shower with me but, to be "with" me, she'd jump from the bathroom sink onto the top of the open door so she could see me over the shower doors! (She's also the one that could straight up the front of the refrigerator. Silly cat!)

    teri, glad you made it home okay. and yes, us moms, whether it's animals or kids, never get to go to the bathroom alone. and you ladies just wait, later on in yrs, then papa will say to you, "why don't you shut the door?" go figure.

    It's instinct-felines in the wild would drink from flowing streams. They still havetose instincts even though they are domesticated.

    My cat Midnight dips his paw into the water bowl and then lick it off his paw. A cat I use to have would tap the water bowl to get the water moving, then he would drink it.
    I have another cat that likes to get into the bathtub - no water, sometimes he just lays there. The cats do not get on the kitchen counters and have never drank out of the faucet. Another of my cats likes to get on my lap while I use the toilet - if I forget to close the door. I will leave it open if no one is home.

    My silly old kitty waits for DH to finish showering then practically runs him over and jumps in the shower when he opens the door! She just started doing that about 2 months ago.

    He does dip his paw in the bowl,too. LOL

    I am trying to take a pic of him unlocking the fasten lock, but he never does it when I aim my camera to him. Hmmm, does he recognize it a mischief and he should not do it?? LOL

    My FurBaby (Snoozer) drinks out of the bathtub. I give him fresh water and he will drink out of a puddle outside or the bath tub first. My other FurBaby (BooBear) liked to watch the toilet when it was flushed. He never drank out of it or got in -- THANK GOD! - but he loved to watch the water swirl around and go out. I am glad he didn't know how to work the handle!

    What a beautiful cat but I'd find the water shutoff valve behind the toilet and limit kitty on his flushing!

    *LOL* My cats LOVE water.. the bathtub water runs and here comes all 3..they have to watch it. Then if it drips, OMGosh, they fight to see who gets the drips from the faucet! We have to keep the toilet lids down as they'll get in there and drink the water.. eeeeeeewwwwwww! Have an cup of water on the counter and lil missy Bella decides she NEEDS to drink out of it (not the other 2, they know better), but Bella thinks she's cute and can get away with it.. NOT!
