You shut the bathroom door to shut your 80# labrador out so you can go to the bathroom alone and undisturbed and the entire time she just sits on the other side slumped against the door whining making cry babies. Sometimes she’ll throw her body weight into it to bust it open.. Lmao, super funny but seriously irritating!
Anybody else have problems with their animals trying to bust into the bathroom??

@Starling13: I would if I didn’t let him come in. He follows me in there and waits while I have a shower or do whatever else I am doing. He think it is snuggley time.

My cat! He “knocks” on doors by tapping his paws against it and running them up and down against the door – he actually licks his paws to make them wet so they squeak when he does this. He won’t let me potty alone, ever.

@MrsPanda99: haha!! Yes about the shower thing! She constantly is sticking her head in and around the curtain wanting to get in o. “Bath time!” I let her in for most things – excethe when I have my period or want to go #2 (TMI!!).
@futuremrsk18: he knocks?!? So cute! I used to have a kitty who would stick her paws under the door like we used to do to our mom (who I realize now had the patience of a saint!)

@Starling13: My cats have been known to sit upright like meerkats when I bath… also Big Boy thinks greeting me when I have my morning pee is great. Oef!

@Starling13: LOL yes, he learned because he would sneak out the front door sometimes and we couldn’t catch him in time, then he’d come back and need to get back in and so he’s have to make noise, but the front door doesn’t have space on the bottom for him to stick his paws under. Somehow, we would hear a combination of like a light patting/pounding and squeaking and we ended up learning that was his way of telling us he wanted to come back in lol

My youngest dog will just wait outside the door for me or find something else to do, but my oldest dog will scratch and cry until I let her in.

My dog will wait outside the bathroom door, lay down and wait until either my FH or I are done with the bathroom. During shower time, she does the same thing. It’s cute, but I’ve tripped a few times because I wasn’t looking down when I left the room (she’s a small dog – pug).

iff you don’t shut the door properly my dog comes in and sits right infront of you while you’re on the loo.
If you do shut the door propery she’ll knock on it with her poor and sniff very loudly just outside the door …
Love her though

Um, yes, my 8 pound cat. I have two other heavier animals, but she’s the door-buster. If I don’t lean on the door to get the locking mechanism into the groove (I don’t know the real terms for these things), she can open it by standing on her back legs and pushing on the door with her front ones. And she doesn’t do it often, so it catches me totally by surprise when she does.
ETA: the dog is guilty of whining outside the door sometimes, but at least she has some respect for privacy.

My labrador sits outside the bathroom door and cries, too! Luckily, he hasn’t tried the body slamming thing, haha. He’s sooo codependent – it’s cute 98% of the time, i’d say ;-).

We put a gate up in the doorway of the bathroom to keep our kitties out. My little kitty always sits there and tries to squeeze through the bars. There is no way she can fit, but she tries every time. When she gives up she just stares at me and meows every time I look at her.

My cat will not tolerate any closed doors unless he’s distracted in another part of the house. So when I get home from work and head to the loo, i’ll leave the door open otherwise he’ll just plaintively meow non-stop which gets a bit annoying.
We draw the line when we’re having sexy-time – he gets shut out then but seems to know not to make a fuss on the other side of the door.

My cat sits outside and cries. He NEEDS to be with his mommy at all times, he’s a stage 5 clinger. I love it.
