The seat itself was up. The messy collection of prints was around the circumference of the seat proper.
“Hm, thought I to myself, “That is strange. I just cleaned this bathroom yesterday.” (I am the maid, cook and bottle washer (make that cup washer) in our humble abode.)
Well, as I peered in for closer inspection I noticed that the normally clear water in the bowl was not clear. It contained. Well, this is a G-rated website, so I won’t bother with descriptive. Let it suffice to say that the color was a shade of liquid amber.
That said, I gave a squeal when I realized indeed what had taken place in the commode.
Kitty (aka that Hercules) had decided to go for a look, drink, goodness knows why. Curiosity I guess.
I do know that I went out of the bathroom and summoned dear offspring and asked him to come ‘have a look.’
“Now, my dearest son,” said I in my most matronly voice.
“What do you think has happened here?”
He took a look at the toilet seat, inspected the curiously edged paw prints rimming the white seat and pronounced, “It looks like Hercules was here.”
I gave him the “That’s your response” look along with a gentle finger pointing and said, “Please be more careful next time – put the lid down next time.”
He sighed and said, “I’m sorry Mom. I won’t do it again. Now can I go back and watch the wrestling match on television?”
I gave the toilet and the bathroom sink and the floor a good scrubbing.
As for Hercules- I contemplated giving his paws a cleaning, but wasn’t sure how he would react….
I swear this cat is going to make me decide that having a chameleon for a pet might just be the answer.
They don’t chew wires do they?
