this is not really a problem..it just amuses me abit and i find it a little fascinating. every time i try to clean kuan yin's litterbox (several times a day)...she tries to stop me!! she jumps in the box, bats at the scooper, or jumps and bites my hand. she doesn't seem upset and she is a kitten so i was first just assuming she is simply playing..but she now must use the box immediately after i am done or even WHILE i am cleaning it..it's like she has to "fix it" again...i always thought only dogs would mark their territory like that and since cats are tidy that their smell alone in the box would be enough to satisfy them (the box doesn't smell, i just mean the smell she must pick up on from herself)..i don't dump all of it out daily or anything so i'm fascinated why she feels she needs to mark it after. she's not spraying, she's been fixed, and she's only 5 and 1/2 months old...i guess i'm just curious. anyone ever experience this before? none of my previous cats used to do this and i'm just interested what's going on in her mind.
