They cover it to cover up the odor as best they can.

To hide the fact that they've been there from predators? I know a lot of animals do that.....

To mark territory?

They cover it up so the odor doesn't attract enemies/prey? It's an instinctual thing?

I've always heard its to hide their presence from prey animals, by covering their scents as others have said. That's why dominant cats and a lot of the big cats don't cover - its a territorial/dominance "Hey, I'm here!" sort of message.

Well, it's not exactly copycatting..... I think Alycia had a one time question, like several others have had. Some members even had outright points giveaways. And I haven't seen any other quizzes about TCS here....

If by chance you are talking about the Color Question threads in Fur Pics, that's a whole different type of thing as well. That's two experienced breeders allowing members to show their skills at typing and coloring cats, and educating a lot of us along the way, while we have some fun guessing the colors and breeds of some GORGEOUS cats. And all for some fun points that we can use to give gifts to the many friends we've made here on TCS.

I know I'm too late to get the points... but I think they do it to hide it! It's just a natural thing for cats to do i guess.
