The happy poops.

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
OK, so I'm trying to figure out if this is a male cat thing, or a long hair cat thing. After Isaac poops, he tears around the house like he's about 5 lbs lighter. I've heard of other cats doing this, but they are usually long hair cats. It there something about the long haired ones, or is it more personallity dependant?

Most all of my cats do that, it doesn't seem to make a difference if they're male or female or shorthaired or longhaired... at least, not in my house!

So funny, I laughed at the title! Maia is a short hair and goes bazerk after she relieves herself, even after no. 1! Of course no. 2 has the most intense effects, absolute terror running laps through the apartment without stopping for anything!

Actually it's my short haired girl that does this the most. I figure she's running from the smell
Stan (with his fuffy pantaloons) usually takes his time stepping out of the box and shaking his legs off.

mine are all short haired. Nabu tears around after he poops. it's hilarious. sometimes he gets Stimpy all excited and it turns into a game of chase.

I just think it's so funny. I guess with Isaac I thought it had to do with his long rump hair because when I get him a sanitary shave he seems to do it less often. Maybe some cats just feel the need to run after.

Mine are all SHs.....Twitch always does this. Damita did until she ran into the Christmas tree. PJ & Punky do all the time, too.

Yep, Popsie does it and he's a short hair. I just think it's because cats are silly.

In nature, elimination time is a scary time; the cat is vulnerable and is literally exposed.

This is why cats can become fussy about the placement and environment of their litter box. Anyone who has tried to use a bathroom with no lock on the door can identify!

So tearing about afterward is similar to any kind of relief of stress. They can get goofy, but there's a good reason.

Actually this makes perfect sense to me. He is a bully, but like most bullies he is also the most afraid of things.
