RE:Your H2O Supply
MEMO: We regret to inform you that we are no longer stocking Evian in the guest bathroom. So, please refrain from drinking from the toilet.

I thought only dogs drank from the toilet!
Margaret, so did I! Thus the chagrin, shock, nay, horror of the discovery. Her cat box used to be in the bathroom but was vacated so guests could sleep without dealing with kitty. Most recently noticed she would disappear to said bathroom for extended moments for no apparent reason. Lo and behold, I peeked in to discover her drinking from said “white throne”… eeewww! Of course, cats get off on grooming themselves, so perhaps the chlorinated water helps to clear her palette… but I digress…

re: mobility and annoyance.
memo: how do you maintain that level of mobility? i would also love to hear some of your techniques for bothering your servants for i am tiring of the ankle-biting method.

Margaret–I can’t explain this cat. I’ve not seen her do this, IZ has. However, I can attest that her breath really does smell chlorinated. 🙂 She’s not that coordinated of a cat, so she’s going to end up in the drink eventually. Which, sadly, might be a reason to keep the toilet seat up. Heh… BAD WENDE. 🙂
My cat drinks out of the toilet sometimes too. You want to talk shedding? If I don’t vacuum every single day there is black dog hair all over the place. Hell, If I DO vacuum every single day there’s black dog hair all over the place.
From page 103 of the “House Lion Survival Guide”:
Water dish: Old stale water that the humans force you to drink.
Toilet: Fresh water that the humans change constantly, but you can’t have because they secretly hate cats.
Ha! Tom, you slay me. 🙂 Damn cat gets fresh filtered water daily. I just think she’s trailer trash who likes her some chemicals in hers water. 🙂 [sic]
I’m telling you she’s using it like mouthwash. Having to lick yourself is disgusting. Have you ever seen the face a cat makes in that process…
Of course, drinking out of a toilette is disgusting – but we’re talking comparative evil…
