The trouble is that it is never caught and zookeeper pollutes my production  
logs with what are probably harmless exceptions. I assume that my code  
executes just fine but later on the ZooKeeper server throws the exception  
as it does work in the background. Is there a way to gracefully catch those  
exceptions so they don't pile up in my production logs?  

I have tried in the past to fix my code so these exceptions are never  
thrown, but I have not found much in the documentation or on google on how  
to deal with these exceptions. Is it a known problem? I would love to solve  
these issues too if possible.
