This is a favorite place of hers that she can't get out of herself. She hangs out there for a couple hours and then starts crying to be rescued. The first N times she did it, we couldn't figure out how she got up there, but eventually we caught her in the act.


That vanity, so tasteful.

So this is our bathroom, as seen from the door. The shower is on the left, and the toilet is at the end of that section on the right. It's laid out like:

                   ----------
                  | [toilet] |
                  -          |
               window        |
                  -          |
                  |          |
 -----------------|          |
|        |        |          |
|        | (sink) |          |
|        |        |          |
|        |--------           |
|  tub   |                   |
|        |                   |
|        |                   |
|        |                   |
|        |                   |
 ----------| door |----------

The toilet section's ceiling is about three feet lower than the rest of the room, and the space above it is a cabinet that you can access through the doors above the sink.

The bathroom has a duck theme, but I don`t think you see much of that.

We have a bunch of dishes up there.

World`s Longest Whiskers

And there she is. At first we thought she must have gotten there by jumping from the vanity to the light above the mirror, and then into the cabinet; but closing the cabinet door didn't keep her out!

That`s Dubya with a rolled up dollar bill taped to his nose.

We figured out the mystery when she was standing on the toilet, eying the window.

He also has a WCW party hat.

The cabinet isn't closed off from the window, so she just climbs up using the shelves. Since she doesn't like climbing down backwards, the structure forms a one-way cat valve.

Fascinating.

you are short. You don't even reach up to the bathroom sink.

Do I even want to know what that poster says?

No. no. The Cat took the photo's by dunc (4.00 / 1) #3 Fri Feb 11, 2005 at 01:46:06 AM EST
and posted the diary. Quite impressive, if a bit vain.

"Out of Order" and "the only bush I trust is my own." And a bunch of rectangular pieces of construction paper from a pin-the-Hitler-mustache-on-George-W.-Bush party game.

Our moron cat by ObviousTroll (4.00 / 1) #17 Fri Feb 11, 2005 at 03:05:21 AM EST
likes to walk into the downstairs bathroom, slam the door shut and then meow to be let out again - within seconds of closing the door, mind you.

I usually just stand on the other side of the door and mock him for a while before my wife makes me open it.

Cats are so cool by nebbish (4.00 / 2) #4 Fri Feb 11, 2005 at 01:47:19 AM EST
We used to have one that meowed to be let out of the front door, you'd let him out and go back to find him sat on a chair looking at you. We never worked out how he did it.

A neighbor's cat could ring the doorbell by wiredog (2.00 / 0) #6 Fri Feb 11, 2005 at 01:54:30 AM EST
Took neighbor a couple of times to figure out that it was the cat hitting the button.

That's a running joke in our family by nebbish (2.00 / 0) #13 Fri Feb 11, 2005 at 02:16:40 AM EST
My dad saw a cat ringing a doorbell once and no-one believed him, we laughed at him about it for ages. It's only recently that I've heard it from other people.

I will issue him with a formal apology.

Before we got a catflap, our oldest cat used to hang by its paws on our door, looking through the window.

Or, in K5 ascii reenactment player parlance:

+1 - FP! by greyrat (4.00 / 1) #5 Fri Feb 11, 2005 at 01:47:43 AM EST
Even if you are a troll.

Facinating stuff. I'd post about how our dog manages to chew up clothes that are in a basket four feet from his box, but we haven't figured out how he does it yet.

You're daring me to Google 'chuon tunneling' aren't you?

I am so jealous!!!! by extremely tedious HuSer (4.00 / 1) #14 Fri Feb 11, 2005 at 02:18:49 AM EST
I used to live with a cheeky little tabby but now I cannot keep pets anymore. He was so cute! He thought he was human. Wouldn't eat unless I put the food in a proper plate complete with knife and fork!!!
I really miss him.
