We have a cat box in the garage,
but when I would leave the door cracked during the day
it would either make the house
too hot and stinky during the summer
or too cold and stinky during the winter.
So, we had a pet door put in and the cat loves to use it.
She’s great about going outside to do number two,
but when it comes to peeing she loves to go in the shower.
That cat absolutely loves to pee in the shower.
Then I thought a minute.
Unencumbered by aiming…
this is perhaps the only moment of total,
unrestrained freedom we have in our day.
Still, I had to wonder was my cat’s desire
to pee in the shower instinctual,
as it likely is in all animals?
Or had she learned this behavior
by observing one of us in the shower?
Going forward I decided be much more cautious
when my cat was around in allowing her observe
what I did in the shower,
so she would not adopt some of my
even less appropriate behaviors in the shower.
Like not washing behind my ears.
