I know that a lot of you out there are cat owners, and so I just want to begin by saying that the question in my blog-title is actually a sincere one. Maybe you can help me.
I think my cat Kennedy is maybe a bit mentally retarded.
He seems to want to live his life in my bathtub, mainly in the space between the inner and outer shower curtains, the former of which he keeps tearing to shreds, and I have to keep buying new ones all the time. He seems insanely intrigued with the bathtub. He's just always in there, mostly in this inner sanctum place, but other times just sprawled out right in the tub. He's obsessed with it. The weird thing is, my last cat [Jack] was similarly insane -- just not quite to this same degree, and at least he did not shred the inner liner. But Kennedy is hardcore in love with my bathtub.
So I honestly am wondering if this is just some kind of common thing with cats? Does your cat do this? Should I seek counseling for this guy? Or just assume that this behavior "goes with the territory" and maybe subscribe to some sort of service that regularly sends me shower curtains in the mail?
