We have that same hairball problem! They don't want to budge for anything, even the threat of the water being turned on :lol: .

Cute cat!

Love it! One of ours likes to drink from the bathtub faucet.

Too bad the spam got so bad. Some of us have been spending time at the new community for folks with a love of old houses at wavyglass.org

Awww...our last cat used to sleep in the dog's dish. When she was little, she fit all the way, when she got bigger, her butt would hang off the side, but the rest of her would be curled up in it!

Our cat is about the same size - 15LB???

He's not interested in the sink at all but our DD came to stay when Dad-in-Law was visiting from England and brought her cats with her, they loved the bathroom sink.

Hey, don't feel bad - I have "hairballs" in my bathtub. My youngest cat Princess, aka Spawn of Satan, lies in the tub every chance she gets, even if the vinyl bath mat is wet. I don't mind, except for the wet footprints on the wood floors. :lol:

Had all 4 lined up in a row watching me use the sawzall this weekend. You'd have thought they would have fled to the far corners with all the noise I was making, but they were intently ... supervising.

Reminds me of a joke:

I'm afraid of my cat!

Why?

The last hairball he threw up was a rotweiller! :wink:
