Especially when I'm still bent over the box and it's uncovered. And that little girl can peel paint off the walls!
Stumpy generally tries to climb in while we're scooping, so we scoop a bit of one box, she jumps in, so we move to the second box, she changes, so go back and finish the first one until she jumps in then finish the second one
At least Stumpy or Smudge will christen it when it's clean. And smudge always has her bum in, and her front paws up on the edge of the litterbox and stares up at you with a big kitty smile.
