Litterbox Habits

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Our cat Rory is the proud momma of 4 beautiful month-old kittens. The kittens are doing great with the litterbox. But the momma is a different story. She's not burying her "deposits" in the litterbox anymore like she used to. They're in the box, but just laying on the top of the litter. I guess Rory thinks her stuff don't stink no more, which is not the case. The odor is unbearable. Anyone else have this problem?

Maybe it is her way of showing them that is what we do in a litterbox?!? She may be more stinky because she is still cleaning up after them. I would just try to scoop more often, but always leave one or two baby poos in there.

I was thinking the same think Beckboo was. Maybe she is teaching the kits.

I don't recall having that particular problem, but it definintely makes sense that she's leaving it there for her babies to be guided to the box. Actually I think Elsa totally covered hers, plus dragged up the towel on top of it.

I'm happy to report that Rory has gone back to burying her bowel movements in the liiterbox! And the kittens are doing great with their litterbox too.
