What's wrong with that? She probably doesn't have much else to do. Do you have any kind of toys/recreation in the bathroom for her?
When I try to use the washroom, she always tries to jump in or onto my lap
That's just showing affection. I would be honored!
Climbed my curtains about 5 times
knocked down my flower vase on my counter about 5 times
ripped my shower curtain
pulled down my towels about 10 times
IF she's going to be secluded to the bath you need to remove your vase, towels, toilet paper, and drape your curtain up over the rod. She's just being a cat. You need to catproof just like you would babyproof.
and whenever I clean her litterbox, she climbs into the bag, and bites my hand when I'm scooping
Try removing the litter box from the bathroom and change it.
and the worst part is that she doesn't listen whenever we say NO and for most of the time, we don't see her doing the stuff so we can't tell her not to. But I know she's done it, since my bathroom is always a mess.
Cats don't respond to NO.
Well, two days ago, I open my bathroom door and she bursts out. Blueberry was sitting right there too! I was kind of scared, so I put her back in right away.
This is normal.
They meet again, and Blueberry runs away from her. You could kind of tell he doesn't like her. Cinnamon is really wild and crazy, the craziest cat I've ever seen, and Blueberry is the COMPLETE opposite. He's such a nice cat, he listens to everything we say, and hasn't done anything bad before. But Cinnamon's only been her for a week, and every day she messes up my room and bathroom.
She's messing this up cause she has nothing else to do or no where to go.
I guess its because she's from the shelter, and she has been on the streets before. And she had about 5 siblings to play with before. Blueberry's a Himmy, so he's very laid back. So I really don't think they'll get along.
Why is she secluded in the bathroom?
Well, I really hope you guys won't get mad at me for doing this.
and btw, what would you do if this happened to you?
No one will be mad, you just need to be more patient and work with her.
ok, thanks for listening, I'm sorry for such a long post
Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is a full management plan in which stray and feral cats already living outdoors in cities, towns, and rural areas are humanely trapped, then evaluated, vaccinated, and sterilized by veterinarians. Kittens and tame cats are adopted into good homes. Healthy adult cats too wild to be adopted are returned to their familiar habitat under the lifelong care of volunteers
