    This morning while soaking in a hot bath my cat just couldn't stand that she couldn't (wouldn't) get in there with me. She stood on the edge, pawed the water, meowed at me... everything but get in there too. :-D

    She also sits on the countertop next to the shower (I sometimes open the door a crack so she can stick her nose in) and when I get out she gets in.

    Oh... before anyone asks :P No, I didn't take the camera into the bath with me. I had my phone there within reach so took a picture with it.

    OMG that is too funny!

    One of our cats used to lick the tub dry after we took a shower/bath. The vet said that was fine and his cat does the same thing.

    Your picture is precious!

    Cute picture! She looks like the kitty I had!

    The kitty that I had would climb onto my chest/shoulders while I reclined in the tub...and get super indignant if she got wet in the process!

    LOL cats are SO funny!!! Yesterday mine was chasing the second hand on our wall clock ~ she's never noticed it before but we had boxes piled underneath and she could suddenly get right up to it!! She was rather mad that she couldn't catch it!

    Most nights I sleep on my side. Baby Peeps in the crook of my knees, Rudy stretched out on top of me, and Squeaky on a pillow above my head where she stretches out a paw so she can touch me. Good thing I'm not a restless sleeper! Anyone who says cats are too independent, was never owned by a cat. Or two, or three, or ...

    That's funny - the first thing I thought when I saw the picture was "I'd never think about taking a camera in the bathtub with me" so when I read your last sentence I had to laugh!

    I had a cat that used to do something similar - especially when I had a bubble bath. After she fell in the tub, however, she no longer had any interest in catching my toes in the water.

    Our cat cries at the bathroom door while hubby is in shower, he refuses to allow him in there while showering. After his shower, cat will get in shower area and walk around. Strange cat.

    Is that unconditional love - when they will follow you some where they don't want to go? Watch those toes.

    I can relate to QBeth...my cat likes to sleep on my pillow at night- sometimes he even lets me have a corner of it to sleep on. Funny thing, though...he wakes me up by patting my cheek when he wants attention...no claws, just kitty pats!

    I know about those kitty pats -- that's why I keep their claws trimmed! They're careful but when the claws are long, they're hard to stow.

    As for pillows, I didn't get much of mine until I gave Squeaky her own which, in this case, was an old flat one that kind of sits under mine. She squeaks in between my pillow and the head board. :-)

    When I travel, I find it hard to get to sleep the first few nights.

    She sleeps with me too. At the beginning of the night she is at the foot of the bed. By the time morning comes, and before the alarm, she is laying on top of me and/or kneeding me with her paws.

    Every time I get in the reclinder and lean back, I have the dog at my side and the cat on my chest. Since cat is so big, makes it hard to watch tv some times. Have to scoot him down a bit. Don't know what has got in to the dog but every time the cat gets near me last few days she chases him away nipping at his butt.

    My dog sleeps with me, but stays on his own side of the bed, until morning then he starts to cuddle and almost pushes me out of my own bed.

    if she ever falls in ..... evidentally, having a kitty is about like having a child - - your "bathroom" time is never your own again! :lol:

    My silly little girl cat gets IN the shower with us!
    There's an area in the shower stall that she can stand in where she doesn't get wet. She gets a little mist on her, but she doesn't mind. She'll sit there until we are done. Silly cat!

    Too funny. First thing I thought of was good thing the reflection in the faucet or handles didn't show more. lol

    I have to turn the garden tub faucet on for Mr. Tubbs every morning. He needs his cold running water you know. He also loves to sleep in the tub hence the name.
    Got out of my shower the other morning pranced around doing hair, lotion, etc. bent over picked up the bath mat and threw over edge of tub. Guess who was watching me the whole time? Geesh, peeping cats.
    Colonel sleeps in the crook of my back (I'm a side sleeper). He is also the one I play fetch with late at night when doing my homework. Yep, never alone.

    OH SURE YOU DIDNT HAVE A CAMERA WITH YOU... uh huh we buy that one. Sheesh! I had a cat who loved to watch you shower but would stand there head peaking into the shower and YOWL the whole time like OMG get out of there.. NOWWWW!!! Too cute. Thankfully your cat did not fall in or you would be showing us your imitation barb wire attack legs instead. Adorable pic. Great pic.

    Our cat follows us from room to room. He doesn't like the sound of the water filling the tub or sink but gets in when it is dry and looks around. He does watch TV when something catches his eye. He even goes over to pat it. LOL I never dreamed a cat could be so much fun.

    Cute picture! One cat I had would sit on the tub in between the shower curtain and the liner while I was showering. He stayed dry and I think he thought he was camoflouged. LOL
