I can't be too sure but i think my cat has been licking my toothbrush :eek:

Usually I pull the brush from the toothbrush cup, and the bristles are medium in firmness and always a wee bit damp. For the past week the bristles on my toothbrush have been suspiciously firmer than they usually are, AND the bristles are completely dry. No Moisture at all. Nada.

I think Zak's been licking the toothbrush dry.


Do i have to lock up the toothbrush?

Anyone ever catch their cat lickin' their toothbrush?

Thanks :o

Maybe since Daddy isn't brushing his teeth,he figures he'll do it himself.........LOL

I have my toothbrushes in the medicine cabnet.My only problem is that Casper takes the cup that we rinse with.It's on the ledge of the sink... :rolleyes:

Buy the cat his own toothbrush. Alison's cat hops on the bathroom counter every morning and screams until she brushes his teeth. I'll also tell you that you don't want to mix up the cat's toothpaste with yours. Yuck.

Of course you have all heard of the story of the couple who were rude to hotel staff while on vacation. When they finally had thier vacation photos developed they saw pictures of thier toothbrushes being used to clean the toilet, I'm sure it's just an urban legend.

I wouldn't be surprised if my cats licked our toothbrushes.... we've been keeping the bathroom door closed because we have caught them in the closet, in the sink, drinking out of the toilet, and stealing from the trash can. Some things are okay, but drinking from the toilet and chewing on used q-tips isn't too sanitary!
