Cat Bath

Almost four years ago, my husband and I adopted a cat named Iris from The Buddy Dog Humane Society. She has been a welcome addition to our home. She is generally quiet and easily pleased. Sleeping, petting, and sometimes being held are at the top of her list of favorites. Tooth brushing and nail clipping are low on her list.

There is one apparent oddity. She follows me into the bathroom no matter what I am doing in there. No matter where she is or what she is doing, no matter how deeply asleep she is, the second my hand touches the bathroom doorknob you here her kerplunk off the bed or the couch and pitter patter straight to the bathroom. She never follows Mr. B&B. Sometimes if she isn't sure which one of us is in there, she'll peek in and if it is Mr. B&B she just passes right on by. This is endlessly hilarious to Mr.B&B.

We have decided that she just knows the "girl code" as Mr. B&B calls it. What is the "Girl Code", you ask? "Friends must go to the bathroom in pairs or packs if they are in the same place at the same time."

Do you have pets? If so, any apparent oddities to share?


  1. My little rescue cat, Kittykie loves carrying socks, clean or used, around the house, mewing loudly.

    My oldest cat, Joe can open doors by stretching up and hanging on the handle. Former cat Noonie used to hang on the handle while her roommate Kittykie used to paw the door open - teamwork. One other former kitty Taz used to open the french door as well by climbing up the wooden frame and hanging on the handle until the door opened. Quite a common trick with my brood.

    Joe, clever old man of almost 9, also dips his paw into empty cat food tins or containers to get to the dregs of the food and then licks it off his paws.

  2. LOL that is hilarious. my cat will only drink water from the faucet.


Have a Brainy and Beautiful Day! Love reading all the Brainy and Beautiful Things you say <3
