Eww! But both cats and dogs drink from the toilet and gross us out. I’ve written about why pets drink from the toilet for the puppies.about.com site but the topic was just too perfect for an Ask Amy video.
Do your cats and dogs indulge in potty games? It can be very dangerous especially if you use household cleansers that can poison pets, so it’s really important to prevent the behavior if you don’t object to potty-mouth-kisses from your pet. DOUBLE EWW!

What have I missed in the Ask Amy video below? Any other reasons you can think of why your dog or kitty might be attracted? Do they enjoy watching the water swirl around (watch out for cats that flush, LOL! can make for a very high water bill). Do tell!
