Poor Loki!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Loki seems to be scared of his own poop. Um, yeah.

In the past 2 weeks, there have been 2 incidents where, after he went, there were some, um, "hangers-on". The first time I had no idea what was going on because he was running around in a panic, but finally stopped. A few minutes later, I detected the unmistakable odor of poop. After finding it I realized that it must have been why he was racing around. Same thing happened earlier tonight, though I figured I knew the cause this time.

But seriously, the poor guy was really freaking out! When this happens he runs around at top speed in a panic, like when he gets caught in a plastic bag. I really don't know why he gets so upset; you'd think he's be used to poop, and know it's not after him!

It's not really a problem for me since it's an accident, even though it is pretty gross to find pieces on the floor. I don't think it's going to be an ongoing problem, either, since it's only happened twice. But what I'd like to know is if all or most cats freak out and run around like maniacs when a piece stays attached, or is my poor Loki just special??

Hmmm...I've never come across a left over piece on Lucy Belle's behind but she is very particular about covering her poop after she's finish doing business. She will basically shake and shake to make sure everything's out .. hehe ... but yeah, Loki sounded really strange, being afraid like that. Maybe someone can chime in.

Sho's never ran... he does waddle and make a pathetic "get it off me" face.

Cable almost never has klingons, being a DSH, but she runs frantically from the box after a poop, anyway!

I am very familiar with this problem--my younger kitty, Quasar, frequently has droppings attached to his hind end that won't dislodge in the litter box--he takes off at top speed, tearing through the house, and taking his tush for a glide upon the carpet or floor, in order to rid himself of the stubbornly adhered turd. Thus the occasional nickname "The Burnout King". I doubt whether this is really all that unusual, even though my older cat doesn't have the same problem. I've been thinking that Quasar might benefit from a cat laxative--it's worth a try!

Arthur has a few problems with that sometimes, he doenst seem to notice though. You might try trimming the long fur in that area, thats what I have to do with Arthur and Chester to keep everyone clean.

Loki is a shorthair, so that's not the problem. It's only happened twice. I'm going to keep an eye on him in case there's something wrong, but I don't think so because I took him in to get his vaccinations a week ago, and the did a fecal exam which was fine. I honestly think it's just a fluke.
