Not a question of any consequence, just something I've always been curious about, and I know someone here will know the answer: how is it that, unlike dogs, who have to be housetrained, cats just automatically know to use the litterbox? Is it instinct, or what? I recall hearing that mother cats will teach their kittens to use a litterbox, but I got Meeko at five weeks old, and he'd been raised by people (he was found abandoned with no mother), and he knew to use the litterbox even at that age without me having to teach him a thing, so I'm not sure if it's just that. Anyone have any insight? My apologies if this is a dumb question.
