Who would have thought that repeated lifting of kilos worth of stainless steel would cause back pain the next day? I am an idiot.

What cute thing does yout pet do?

Okay, this one is a little odd, but my cat Bunyip has this thing about coming into the bathroom with me. It doesn't matter what I'm doing (laundry, shower, brushing my teeth, whatever), but she will follow me into the bathroom and complain if she is not allowed to. She'll come in, sit on the washing machine (unless I'm using it) and groom herself while I do whatever, often demanding to examine the interior of the shower or some such. On the occasions she is shunned from the bathroom and the door closed, she will sit just outside the door and wait for me. After her bathroom adventures, she'll then run off and do what ever cat thing she feels like doing.

It's very odd, but very cute.

Our cats do the same thing.

Apparently, Sophie (the fluffy one) taught Ruby (the sleek one) how cool water was. Ruby wouldn't go within miles of open water when Nicky first adopted her. Then when she got Sophie and both were settled with each other, Sophie lead Ruby into the bathroom one day and Nicky watched them playing with the water as she turned the taps on :) Now it's not uncommon for Ruby to want to watch water coming out of the taps and have an occassional bat at it.

Maybe bunyip thinks that any room with a sink and weird floors will contain food? =P

Isobelle is always waiting outside the bathroom. Perhaps it's the sound of the toilet flushing that entrances cats

more cat wierdness
Coco occasionaly climbs into the shower with me... at the flat she used to climb up onto the shower screen transom and watch over me while I was in the bath (it was narrow, she is fat, she would from time to time fall off - it's amazing how far/fast you can catch and thrown 6.5 kg of cat when it's coming at you at 9.8 m/s2 and you're nekkid...)

She frequently licks bags - the nylon straps on backpacks, and climbs into bags if left open and lying around. I suspect it's a back to the womb type thing. She also nuzzles into my armpit at night sometimes.
