Lol! I'm so glad my bf likes to close the lid, so the seat is always down. He doesn't like the idea of curious little kitty paws being in there, and then tracking toilet water around the house. When I lived with my parents, there were a couple times I went into the bathroom half asleep, didn't bother turning the light on because there was enough light coming through the window and I didn't want to shock my eyes, and got a different kind of shock when I plopped down lol. All I could think was, "God I hope they flushed..."
