Tenacious Terra – 5

The bathroom attached to our bedroom is so tiny that we had a pocket door installed. Terra sometimes jams her cat toys in the hollowed wall space, which cracks me up. I fashioned a hook from a wire coat hanger in the event her recovery efforts fail.


Privacy from closing that door is an illusion. Of course I could shoo all the cats out and close the bedroom door behind them, but that’s no fun.

Whatcha doin’ in there?

Can you believe our bathroom door doesn’t have a lock? And since there is no window, what am I to do in case my husband goes Jack Torrance style crazy?

  1. I so remember this routine. I loved it too.

    You made me think of The Shining. I loved that movie.

    Have a fabulous day, Darla. Big hug to you and scritches to the kitties. ♥

  2. Throw shampoo at him, if he tries to axe that door!
    Spray him with deodorant (I think they still make spray kind).
    Bean him with soap-on-a-rope.

  3. Nope, you're not allowed to go to the bathroom alone.

  5. Haha, that's funny. The Shining's exterior views of the hotel were of Timberline Lodge, up on Mt. Hood. I never lock my bathroom or even close the door. I live alone and the cats have some sick need to be in there with me or they put up a fuss.

    1. It does seem to be a prerogative with kitties. :D

  6. Your Jack Torrance reference sounds like something dad would blurt. What a silly hiding place Terra has found for her toys! We have one of those doors on our laundry room, but I have no interest in using the space to hide anything. Hope you continue to feel better, especially with Christmas coming so quick. Here's wishing you well, and Happy, safe, warm holly days!

  7. If Hubs does that you will not have a chance anyway....locked door or not and axe will get him in. HAHA....cats are so much fun. Misty however is not a player, she is so laid back. Not at all like Lily was as a babe and still not Lily now. Her and I still play chase and get you and Misty wants no part of it all.

  10. The wooden door of one of our bathrooms has sort of expanded due to the change in the weather, and it doesn't close! I don't know why that has happened to only one wooden door in the house. We got a carpenter to set that right, but he has been able to do mend it to only some extend. Since we can't lock the door, we keep a water-filled bucket to keep the door closed!
