Funny habit

Gryff likes to climb into the shower stall when I'm done and lick the water even though he has perfectly cold, clean water in the kitchen.

Jinx has followed suit doing the same thing...however now he has decided he doesn't want to wait until I'm out of the shower. This guy sticks his whole head into the shower stall to lick the water while the water is still running. He winds up with his head and back soaking wet. What a goof ball this guy is.

If there was ever a Bert and Ernie pair of Havs, they are Gryff and Jinx.

I hear ya Ivy. Although Molly doesn't stick her head in , she will lick the lip of the tub, when I open the sliding door. Who knows why, but I think it's common. They do everything with their mouths it seems.

Our new shower is open, with no door or curtain. Kodi comes in, looks at us in the shower with this look like, "You've GOT to be kidding?!?! You LIKE taking baths?!?!" and gets out of Dodge as quickly as possible!

Rosie licks my legs while I am drying off. She even did it this weekend as I got out of the pool. It is Josie Wales the outlaw kitty that licks the shower stall. I encourage it also. You know their little tongues are like sandpaper, so it helps with the soap scum. LOL

Read the title of the post and who it was from so my curiosity was piqued. Too funny although I wouldn't be too happy having to dry myself off and then the dog.

Our cat likes to drink out of the bath tub faucet. When we are brushing teeth, she jumps up on the edge of the tub and waits for someone to turn the faucet to just a trickle for her evening drink.

Both of my dogs who hate being bathed love to drink the water coming from the shower head while I'm trying to clean them. Better than licking the floor of the shower I guess.

Brody goes bonkers trying to lick water off my legs when I get out of the shower so now I try to grab my towel and dry off as much as I can while I'm still in there.

He'll stick his head around the curtain while I'm in there to check to make sure I haven't been taken by the shower monster, but no way would he jump in there. Half the time once I've had a shower he won't come IN the bathroom afterwards for fear that I might take the notion to bathe him next!
