Cat habits


Our Oregon roommate once walked in on Teddy peeing in the kitchen sink. He recreated the scene for us when we got home: What’s weird is that he was really chill about it. He just looked over at me like (*little cat waving*) “Hey man…what’s goin on?”

Recently he’s started doing it again, only in the bathroom sink. Or the bathtub. He waits until you’ve gone in for your own bathroom break and trots in to join you.  “Hey let’s pee together!”

It’s kind of cool that he’s figured out the whole drain thing. The pet voice he was assigned (you do this too, right?) was of the lovable doofus, and Edith got the snooty southern aristocrat. But so far he is turning out to be the brains of the operation.

Now you’ll never want to use our bathroom….unnnnnless you want to try and lure the amazing sink peeing cat.

    Katie, what made this post the best was the memories of you doing the Teddy voice and thus being able to read it appropriately accompanied by his voice. I LOVE THIS POST. And of course the picture of Teddy. He’s so handsome.

    that’s amazing!! I’m really impressed- unless he poops in the sink too. Otherwise, that’s so environmentally friendly of him! using less litter, etc.

      No, no pooping yet. If he starts doing that then I’m he’s going to get a stern talking to (how do people discipline cats?!! i have no idea).

    ROFL! Thank you – that and the pic of said cat was great! And yes, all three of our pet’s have their own assigned “voices”!

    Could your cat come over and teach my cat how to do that please?

    Do you clean with bleech (sp?)? ‘Cause that’s what attracts cats. Or some smell coming from your sink. I’ve quit using it but for the toilet and the cat litter box, I use alternatives for the other stuff as I want to avoid this (I have 3 cats, imagine them doing this …) and because I hate the smell of bleech!

    I would love to learn mine to use the toilet!!

      No, no bleach…but it’s an old sink so it could have some weird smells. We’d love him to graduate to using the toilet too! How cool would that be? I hate buying and throwing away litter.

    I had a cat who used the tub — whenever he decided the litter box was overdue for cleaning. It was a very effective reminder.

    I’m so glad I’m not the only one doing pet voices ;D Our kitty loves the sinks too!
