I just had an interesting moment in my bathroom and I thought I
should share it here.I have never given it any thought of my cat
running around the house freely until now.My cat was walking around
and jumped up onto the sink,from the angle I was at,I think she licked
my toothbrush!
I will be getting a new one and from now on will have it stored in some
kind of holder.I have had cats in my home for 16 years and now I wonder
how many times they have licked my toothbrush and I never knew it.
The moral of this true story is to cover your toothbrush in your bathroom
all the time when not using.

I have 5 rescue kitties and they are all different but mischevious. I've hidden toothbrushes, glasses, tableware for many years. And God forbid I have flowers in a water vase-they love to knock down anything on a flat surface.
A few years ago, my innocent self caught my cat drinking out of a glass left on a table next to the sofa. I just about gagged. I had no idea how long that had been going on. So disgusted. Now-every drink I have has a lid and can't even have a straw sticking out. Love my cats, but hate their inability to understand "my space." My dogs don't do that!

And if you have guests, hide it somewhere in your bedroom until you need to use it.

My mildred has been known to steal some of my coffee from time to time. Caught Onslow having a go at my lager.

I dont really mind just worry for their health.

I keep my toothbrush in a covered glass in the kitchen ever since I heard that when toilets flush, they send up an invisible "mist" of sorts..

I've lost a few coffees to one of my dogs as well, I don't leave it on the coffee table any more, if I leave the room.

I guess it exercises our immune systems

I was looking after a cat a few weeks ago and while asleep I had a dream of Nicole Kidman ravishing me I awoke mid way through to the cat licking my moustache...

I got sidetracked once and caught my boy kitty drinking milk
from my glass.I know to be careful of anything they can get
their snouts into,but I never thought about my toothbrush.

My master bath is 6'x13' and my toilet is across the other
side of the room.I wasn't worried about misting from the
toilet.I should have guessed that my kitties would do
something like licking my toothbrush but I didn't give it a
thought.

I worry, too. I haven't been able to enjoy poinsettias at Christmas or any live plant for many years. And Christmas, no live tree and they still cllimb up my fake Christmas tree so I have to get a new one every year. Then, again, my dogs as puppies loved to chew on computer cords, anything electrical so I had to constantly unplug anything in their available rooms. I am an animal lover but it is an exhausting job.

Oh, my God! The horror!!


Or maybe an over reaction. I wouldn't even think of replacing a toothbrush because my cat licked it. You're not going to die of some horrible disease or anything. My cats are allowed on the kitchen counter where they sometimes steal food. One loves bacon and you'd better watch him closely. I mean, think about it. They use the litter box and then they JUMP ON YOUR LAP!!! You're already exposed to whatever cats have just by having them in the house. If you are truly afraid of "cat germs" you should never have any.

Pay attention to your cats and you get a feel for what they like and dislike.

I've had cats who think nothing of helping themselves to my drink if I'm not paying attention, cats who will steal food, and cats who can't resist freshly washed hair or hair straight from the swimming pool.

I agree with you. Just wash the toothbrush. If the cat's been doing it all along, it hasn't hurt you yet. I wouldn't worry too much about cats drinking some water either. It's happened to me and has never made me sick.

Just gonna give you the heads up that it gets licked regularly by someone even more disgusting than your cat.

If you send me $50 I'll even tell you how I do it.

I kiss my cat on her head and cheeks and she sleeps with me.
I was just surprised to see her licking my toothbrush.
