We adopted T.C. from our local animal shelter 1 month ago, a beautiful Balinese mix, neutered male approx. 1 1/2 years old. He seemed to bond with us immediately and seemed right at home here from the very first day. He is an only pet in a household of 3 adults. He seems to be well trained, always uses litter box and buries well. He has two litter boxes in different rooms, one being in our master bath since he sleeps with us. On two occasions, he has decided to lounge in his litter box while I was using the master bath. This was not while using his litter box ... he just stepped in & laid down on his side. I admonished him gently, since I certainly don't want to discourage him from using his litter box, and removed him. Today, we caught him lounging in the other litter box, which was in the room with us. He is healthy and does not seem to have any problems with elimination. I clean his boxes daily and he has not gone potty outside his box. He is an indoor only cat. I am wondering if this is a territory thing, he likes to sit on my desk chair when he sees me coming and also sometimes takes over my place in king size bed when I get up during the night. He is usually close by and follows us around the house. I would really like to know if this litter box thing is meaningful, it's not a daily event but I want to know how to best handle it. Thanks to anyone with insight.
