AskCatFilter: I've had cats almost all my life; currently my girlfriend and I have three of them. One of them has an odd behavior that I've never noticed before, and I can't seem to figure out. [More Inside]

Whenever I shower with the bathroom door even slightly ajar, Pipsqueak will come running in almost as soon as the water starts to run. She sits patiently beside the tub until the water's off, then as soon as gone, starts yowling up a storm, climbs up on the side of the tub, rubs against you as soon as you're out, and otherwise expressing extreme... what? Affection? Distress? Relief that you're OK?
She hates taking baths, and the best I can figure is that she thinks that some giant naked pink cat has put *us* in the bathtub, and she's thankful we're OK when it's all over. But that seems a bit contrived. Anyone have any other possible insights?
