Join -Wordful Wednesday

the alphabet challenge is directly below the Wordful Wednesday

No matter whether it's a child on two or four feet, there always is a fascination of the toilet water! What it is, I don't understand, but it's there and it's watchable to an indescribable degree. I've seen small children [of the human kind] on Wednesday blogs, either wordless OR wordful, so I thought I'd get one of my four-legged children caught in the act of dipping in..... [And no, I know inquiring minds wanna know-I really don't carry the camera around when using the facilities....I just happened to catch Tahoe in the act and ran for the camera. Honest! Okay, okay....since you really need the truth, I kept flushing the toilet 'til she jumped up to see what was happenin'!!!]

  2. oh you're the best, how much water did you waste, you naughty girl, heee heeee heeeee

    it reminds me of an e-mail my sister once sent me, being a letter to 'my dear animals', and the one of why do they scratch at the door when you're in the bathroom... after all, they've been in there often enough, know there's no another door to escape through and the window's too small, so they should know by now that i have to came out the same place i went in?????

    have a lovely day anni!!!

  6. Haha!! My best toilet-and-child moment was the day when I heard my husband yell, "Don't eat the peanuts off the toilet seat!" My preschooler was lining her nuts on the toilet seat and then eating them off one by one. :)

  7. That's so cute! I find it amusing how kids and pets find the water twirling so fascinating.

  15. LOL That is too funny! My dogs love toilet water....so strange :)

  16. you are so very creative with your pictures. We don't have 4 legged kitties here so we have to keep the bathroom door shut or my 2 legged kiddies will drink the toilet water!!

    ReplyDelete
  17. My 10 month old discovered the toilet 2 days ago, I'm still horrified. :)

  20. Wow - I've never seen the alphabet challenge - that is very cool. I'm a grammar queen. Letters completely fascinate me.

    That hook though, somewhat frightening.

    My Oldest is campainging for a cat - he'll love that picture!!

  21. Something vvery cute about an inquisitive kitty.

    ReplyDelete
  22. What a beautiful black cat.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I didn't think that "i" was any more far fetched than MY "i"! LOL! I think it was an excellent i! And a GREAT J too! You haven't had to leave home to find a single letter yet! That is great!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh! And my Kitty LOVES the toilet water too! Freedom has never even glanced at it -- but Kitty? He's checkin' it out ALLLLLL the time!

  25. Hi Anni! So you've stayed at the Intercontinental Beach Resort in Cozumel too?! Yes, I know about the crew that 'sweeps' the beach. It was quite interesting. We enjoyed staying at the resort. The beach, the oceanfront view and the hotel room were simply fantastic, we couldn't ask for more! :)

    About the kitty..yea, I know. My own one year old child's favorite section of the house is the bathroom now and dips his hands on the toilet bowl any chance he gets, LOL.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Glad to see it is not just my son who is fascinated by the toilet. Or maybe that means that he has the IQ of a cat?...either way, he practically LIVES in the toilet.

    I love your alphabet challenge, I'll have to try that!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I used to have a dog that would go into the bathroom and randomly flush the toilet himself. It was strange, I remember the first time he did it. I guess it was amusing to him! Nice shot :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. hehehe ! I just imagine the picture, you hiding behind the toilet with your camera until a cat comes and looks in it ! Arthur when he was little he fell in the toilet since then he never looked again !

    ReplyDelete
  29. Cats are so funny! Yeah I don't get the interest of the toilet my one year old is very interested right now and it isn't very fun.

    ReplyDelete
  30. we have to keep the cover down Harvey fell into the toilet once and man did he make a mess.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Tell me about it! My son loves the toilet.

    Love that pic!

  32. Hi Anni... I am loving your alphabet postings... So cute.. And the picture of the cat was priceless even if it did take several flushings to get her interested...

  33. Isn't that the truth? Love the new look of your ever changing blog design. :)

  34. Anni,

    Tahoe is a beautiful cat and yes, flushing the toilet would make him curious.

    I'm enjoying your alphabet challenge. How in the world do you think of all this stuff. I'm waiting to see what you use for the letter Z. I'm sure you'll find something. You have a great imagination.

    Michelle posted the photos of the rings she got for her birthday. Thought you might like to know.

    Have a great day. We had a little snow overnight and it's chilly here today.

    Blessings,
    Mary

  42. Your i is perfect! I saw it right away without needing your outline.

    Your J looks a bit scary though!

    I love the cat in the toilet! I had one who would drop things in to watch them sink or float. I was always buying myself new tooth brushes because of it!

    ReplyDelete
  43. My cats just like to watch you go to the bathroom!

    ReplyDelete
  44. LOL, that made me think of the movie Meet The Parents!!

    ReplyDelete
  45. So true! What is the fascination with toilet water?

    ReplyDelete
  46. My cats love the toilet water too.

    ReplyDelete
  47. my cat tries to get into the tub with the kids. He will hang over the edge of the tub and play with their toys. The kids will dump water on his head and he doesn't even flinch!

    ReplyDelete
  48. What a pretty cat .. I have to keep my bathroom door closed because of my kids and cats!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Funny post! Great picture!

  50. What a riot. I do not know what the fascination is, but it ends when it comes time to clean the toilets.

    ReplyDelete

  53. I have wished for the last 20 years that I had had a camera in my hand when we caught our cat actually going potty IN the potty. Crazy cat. Gone to heaven now. ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  54. It doesn't get much cuter than this.
    Hugs,
    Sweetie

  55. The only thing funnier would be if she fell in!

    ReplyDelete
  56. LOL about the cat drinking from the toilet.
    Sadly, my two year olds really enjoy playing in the toilet and try to every time someone leaves a gate open :( EWWWWW

    ReplyDelete
  57. haha im not sure what it is about the toilet either. im guessing its the fasination of it being flushed lol

    ReplyDelete
  58. Great pic of Tahoe! Caught in the act! My cats don't care about the toilets at all, but I still keep the lids down...just in case! LOL

    ((( HUGS )))

    ReplyDelete
  59. Hope Tahoe didn't take the plunge. I keep the lid down to keep Molly from using it as a water bowl. Ewww
    Hugs and blessings,

    ReplyDelete
  60. ROFL what we do to get a pictures for our blog posts! hehe My mom's cat Tiger is also fascinated with the toilet and anytime anyone goes in the washroom, he has to come running in and waits for the toilet to be flushed and then he stands up to watch the water go round and round! lol

    You've got such a good eye to be able to find an "i" in your house...I thought seeing in that glass light house was excellent:-) xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  61. Yep, my cat likes to drink out of the toilet too...gross!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Sorry I'm late! Too funny about the kids fascination. We keep our toilet lids down. LOL! I cat stand the though of my fur babies drinking out of them. :-p

    Tahoe is gorgeous! Reminds me of my best friend Buddy I had growing up.
