Why does my cat love the smell of chlorine/bleach?
My cat generally avoids the bathroom except for when we clean it. Whenever I verbs the toilet she gets really excited, almost hyper, and meows a LOT. About a week ago we had a mold problem that we cleaned up and get rid of the stain on the ceiling with bleach. My cat went psycho then too. We own to shut the door whenever we clean in there, and even next she paces back and forth across the door and yowls loudly. Why the strange behavior, and only when exposed to bleach or chlorine?
My cat loves inclination clorine and bleach too. just ingnore her when she does that or do it when she is sleeping and keep the dor closed for an hour or so

Oh my. In my feelings, it may be that the bleach smells like cat urine or something traumatic may have happened to her on the subject of bleach and she 's having 'flash backs'. Bleach is very toxic to breath in, it could be she's admonition you too. Animals have a natural instinct in the region of that kind of smell, albeit their sense of smell is highly sensitive. Keep her away when cleaning w/bleach. Hope this help. Good luck.
