Litter box tipped on Topaz

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I hope this doesn't become a problem.

I changed out the litter today. (I have been ill and hadn't felt like scooping for 4 days). I heard a thunk-a-thud come from the bathroom and find the box (deep storage container) tipped over on her while she was trying to get in. I righted it and apologized. Apparently I had not put in enough litter to weight it.

Topaz began to squat in the shower. I told her no. She left and I just found she used the rug in front of the kitchen sink.

I put more litter in and hope she tries again.

Ari used it later and had no problems. I hope this was just a one time thing with Topaz. If not, I may be back for solutions.

Awww bless her. Sounds like she's been scared after that experience

I have the storage containers as well for mine Jan, do you have more than one?, and how deep do you have the litter, i have about 3" deep in mine.

When I had a LB tip over on a kitty, I added another box of a different shape with the same litter in another room. After a few days of using the new box, the old box was forgiven & the kitty to using the old box. You might want to add another new one someplace that didn't bite Topaz in the bum. I know the kitty it happened to here, Molly, was giving the old box evil glares for a few days.

Things are okay. Lesson learned by me is don't get miserly with the litter.

Phew! Bijou was worried about Topaz. We're glad to hear that she is OK. What a trooper she is - no wonder Bijou is smitten.

Holly recently tipped over the smaller of her two boxes. She didnt seem to even notice As soon as I righted it and filled it again she hopped in to do her buisiness. Glad yours was not a problem either.
