Nobody believed this youtuber when she said, "...so one night as I'm standing there brushing my teeth after my shower, this one decides the top of my head would make a great spot to chill out and groom herself and, well, it's now become a routine "
Well, thank goodness for video cameras!
My cat looks like this cat and he likes to be involved as well in the things I do.
I had one that liked to ride on top of my head. He would wait on top of the refrigerator... then, when I’d walk by, he’d carefully land on top of my head. It’s a good thing I wore ball caps nearly all the time back then.
Same model cat as mine, except for the spot under his chin.
Tuxedo cats rock.
Really miss him.
Our Tuxedo Cat does the launch from the floor to the shoulders.... whenever he can...especially loves helping my husband make coffee in the morning.
I often wonder what goes through their itty bitty brains than makes them do stuff like this.
When I floss my teeth at bed time, the sound of the floss coming out of the container causes our cat to come running from where ever she is in the house and get into a great “battle” with the floss string. As I use mint flavored floss, she has the best smelling cat breath in the neighborhood.
The reason is quite simple. If you’re using mint flavored toothpaste, it’s the mint. Natural peppermint is related to catnip. The cats don’t smell mint, they smell the ‘nip. And are immediately your new best friend. Trust me on this, i have 4 of the little beggars.
did you see this cat that uses the toilet and toilet paper?
LOL! And I thought my kitty was weird - whenever I walk into a bathroom, he jumps atop the sink, and expectantly give me that “Scritch me NAAOW!” look. Brushing my teeth, shaving, etc. with him on my noggin? Uh-uh...ain’t gonna happen.
I fondly remember the old days, when I could have a little privacy in the bathroom.
I would NEVER give a cat any sort of string, dental floss, etc. I once had a cat who ingested the very thin length of fabric I had trimmed from a seam. This would have killed her. I had to rush her to an emergency vet for surgery. The vet reiterated that one should NEVER EVER give yarn, string, dental floss, fabric trimmings to a cat (although she had gotten the fabric trimming from the wastebasket, I hadn’t actually given it to her). For this reason, I bought a bathroom wastebasket which is like a flexible plastic tote bag and hung it on a hook I siliconed to the tile. My cats can’t get into anything in that wastebasket. Or, you could get a covered wastebasket.
Forgot the Kittyping!
Thanks for the ping.
When Mrs. RQSR, and myself were on our honeymoon in 1978 we stayed a few days in San Luis Obispo at the Madonna Inn. On arrival at our room we unlocked, and the Black, and White tuxedo cat beat us into the room. Never saw the cat coming, she just was there, and acted as though that room was hers. She set up house in our open suitcase, spent the night, and when we got up the next morning she was at the door to be let out. Never saw her again the remaining days we were there.
Flash forward ten years we acquired a tuxedo cat, and naturally named her Madonna after the memory of our honeymoon. She loved to sit on top of the refrigerator, and bat me in the head as I walked by. Always loved those little, and BIG (we have another one today very large named Conniver) black & whites.
Such a charming story; such charming cats:)
Two of mine are Tuxies. Best cats ever.
