How the hell would your cat make your toilet all gross if he drank out of it? Like it's ok he drinks out of your sink, but the toilet is where you draw the line? That's so dumb. Legit let the damn cat drink out of the toilet. Did you know thaqt cats tongues are not designed to drink water so even though it seems like they are lapping and lapping, they are barely getting any water at all. My cat kills all the spiders in my house too!!!]
