If it isn't hurting the child or anyone else, don't worry about it. Drinking from the toilet isn't wise, but it's harmless. Separate what matters and what doesn't and pick your battles. Injuring a pet would get a spanking in my home if the child were over a year old no matter what. If you don't, the pet will run away.
If you don't take control, in whatever manner works for you, they'll be doing this all their lives, if they do this all their lives, they will grow up to be welfare baby factories because they can't keep a job because this is antisocial behaviour.
The real problem is your ability to control them. Maybe you should try spanking. I'm not a big fan of it myself, but it's no sin. You can control them or they can control you.
