An interesting poop observation...

Minou went to her new forever home last week and we recently discovered something interesting about her and her brother, Tardis (my wife grew REALLY attached to him when we were recovering from our car accident, which is why we kept him instead of Minou, in case anyone was wondering). Tardis doesn't bury his poop, which, in hindsight, I kind of already knew... What I didn't realize was that Minou was apparently going in behind him and burying it for him... Her departure has not gone unnoticed by our noses...

One of my boys advertizes his territory that way and the other two are diligent about covering their own poop and Maliik's. The other two are way too diligent about covering poop -- they fling litter over the tops of deep sterilite containers in their zeal to conceal their presence from predators; hence my love affair with my vacuum.

I have some that vary on a day to day basis...especially Baz who regularly leaves his poop uncovered, but sometimes goes beserk flinging litter all over the place. Generally that is when he wants attention though, so not sure it has anything to do with the litterbox and more to do with his need for my attention...

Most of mine don't cover. Most of mine try to limit any contact with litter, I saw Missy the other day walking across three boxes on their edges...

Haha! I've witnessed Minou perched ever-so-precariously on the edge of the litterbox, "taking care of business"...

Mine do that for both poop and pee, Deborah! Most of mine just don't like touching the litter...

Tarah, we did have two almost completely toilet-trained when we added another one that thought an open toilet bowl was a wading pool and we'd have water splashed all over the bathroom... so the toilet lids have to remain down in our home :-(

Mine put their back feet in and stand up with their front paws on the sides. Except for Razi. He gets all the way in and takes up the entire 66 quart box.
