Why does my cat scratch at the door to join me in the bathroom when I’m using it? Three reasons. — 3 Comments

  1. I have no idea what shutting the bathroom door is like. I did that once and I believe they were moments from knocking the pins out of the hinges. My husband was laughing his backside off. Interestingly they do not follow him to the bathroom…

  2. Yes! Yes!

    I believe the scent aspect conveys ‘safety’ to the cat too. Generally our cats (and us) are psychologically & physically vulnerable when we are eliminating, so perhaps they smell/see what we are up to, recognise that if we are safe, then they will be safe there too. I think cats take many very small cues from us regarding how we feel when we are doing such activities.

    My fear aggressive, food obsessive puss, Jet, will also run into the bathroom & put his paws up on the seat to peer over the edge to watch the flush.
