Your cat loves a clean toilet -- don't we all? Catster's singing Cat Lady, Sarah Donner, explains why.33
Heather Marcoux is a cat mom, writer and former TV journalist. She waited many years to become a pet parent, and after being blocked by numerous landlords she finally got to adopt her beloved Ghost Cat. Her biggest reason for buying real estate is so that no one can ever again tell her that she can’t have a pet (or paint).
Before adopting her cat she promised her husband she would clicker train the animal. She lied. The cat, however; did train her to fetch treats.
