we bought a new cat box, w/ a bigger opening for our increasingly elderly house-cat. Daughter asked to take it to the mudroom where her dad would eventually set it up. I said sure just don't play with it or stand on it (cheap thin plastic) and she sarcastically said "or poop in it"? and I responded in what I thought was a silly way of "oh no that's fine baby kitty poop your heart out!" and we laughed. Daddy brought case of litter in from garage and.... she had gone in the box. (my kid not my cat) Her immediate reaction was giggles and "ha ha you didn't think I'd do it!!!" but after seeing my horrified face and dad say some curse words she has cried like crazy and we've yet to make eye contact.
she's a 2nd grader who competes in advanced gymnastics and has seen a therapist once for IQ testing to get into a magnet school. She loves One Direction and Hello Kitty and makes good grades and has lots of friends. She isn't "weird" or crazy she just made this one awful AWFUL decision. No idea if we should punish. Husband refuses to discuss it. No deaths in family recently, drop in grades, we didn't move, no new baby (she has a sister who is 12 and they're quite close) nothing "traumatic"... been looking forward to spring break and some 4H events upcoming this is an isolated incident just really, gross and awful
