Cats are crazy!
We run a cat rescue. There are about 36 cats here at the moment. They all have the run of the house; we leave food and water out for them 24 hours a
day. We haven't had a problem with them drinking out of toilets, mainly because we leave the top down (we've sometimes had kittens in the house, and
we were afraid of them drowning). But we do leave a drip going in the tub, and another in a bathroom sink and sometimes the kitchen sink. Some of them
will drink from those drips even when they're not thirsty, just because they like the idea of running water.
But about the bleach: We discovered long ago that some cats react to chlorinated bleach as if it were catnip. Literally. Because of the number of cats
we use a LOT of vinegar (excellent deodorizer) and a lot of bleach. At any given time we'll have about 10% of them absolutely wallowing on the floors
and counters near where we've bleached....
