Have you ever wondered why your cat follows you everywhere, especially in the bathroom? Cats have many bizarre habits and following their owners into the bathroom falls into this category. Why do they do this?
How many times have you walked to the bathroom and, just as you were closing the door to enjoy your privacy, your cat peeped in or started scratching at the door to get in?

The cat follows me into the toilet: possible causes
1. He’s in love
One of the most plausible and sweetest reasons why your cat “follows” you even into the bathroom is that he loves you. The cat wants to take advantage of every second of your presence and every possible opportunity to spend time with you! He adores you so much that he will follow you everywhere in the house. He wants to sleep with you and will often ask you for cuddles. This behavior often occurs when your cat is at home alone for many hours of the day.
2. He’s hot
If the temperature is high, your cat will follow you into the bathroom because he’s looking for cool surfaces to lie on, such as the shower tray, the bath or the tiles. These allow him to find refreshment.
3. He’s thirsty
Your cat follows you into the bathroom because he needs fresh water. Cats are crazy about moving water and the bathroom is a room where they find the most opportunities for water fun. Bidet taps, shower taps, toilet water, etc.
Cats love a good spring of water

In addition to this, Fontanella Vega is made of plastic with Sanitized treatment, a permanent antibacterial protection that effectively shields it from odour-causing bacteria.
