2 Bumps

I just cleaned the litter box ...sigh ..... do you always have to run in there?

i mean every single time i clean her litter box my cat BOLTS to it and just has to "use" it. I think sometimes she makes herself .... just so she can "mark" in it or something.

UGH !!!!

  • Not to offend, but if it doesn't get cleaned that often, maybe the cat is just excited for it to be clean. They can be pickier than we think. Or maybe she just like practical jokes.

  • My cats do that also. I have 2 litter boxes and if I clean one the cats are there and they actually follow me to the other one.

  • We have a cat that does the same thing, no matter how often it's cleaned. But she is super finicky about her litter box or is a feline "Monk". She has been known to perch on the sides of the box and do the gas station squat.

  • Woo-hoo! Clean litter box! Now I must pee/poop in it to celebrate!

    Answer by SWasson at 3:46 PM on Dec. 22, 2010

  • Yep. I have three cats and they all sit there watching me clean it and have to go as soon as I get up. Sometimes the male jumps in and trys to go while I am cleaning it! We have 3 Litterboxes(My cats like on box for pee and one for poop, lol) The second I get done all three cats hop in a box and go at the same time! LOL.

  • Cats r very clean animals and they all do it because it is clean. It is their nature.
