Dear Krista, to me it seems like Bug just likes to take part in your actions. He gets all excited about things that you do and manifests interest in them. I do not think that you need to worry too much about this, you should enjoy his company while doing things around the house. If he is so playful you as an owner need to ensure he does not get in any trouble and you need to keep things that can be harmful to him in a cupboard, out of reach. Also a bit of training would be recommended as he needs to know his limits. Knocking things down is not really acceptable, is it? Apart from these I would love to have him as my cat.
About the bleach attraction there are two possibilities which could be blamed for his actions:
- he want to re-impregnate the kitchen with his pheromones. When you are cleaning with bleach or any other powerful cleaning product you wipe away his scent from the area. Cats being so territorial animals want to keep their scent in places where they live and visit.
- second possibility is that he is attracted to the smell of it, some say that it smells like the ammonia from cats urine.
