I had read somewhere, that if you put a piece of a small carpet around the cats litter box this will aid them in getting the litter dislodged from their little paws, as they step out. I had noticed one of the cats always rubbing his paws on the first step of the tub to remove the litter stuck between its toes...so 2 days ago, we put the pieces of carpet in place, at both locations. In the above picture the cats have refused to use the litter box.I have always kept this empty litter pan in front of this enclosed litter box to catch any litter and to keep it out of the carpet, as the cats step out...So we put the piece of carpet in the pan...Mind you, we were just trying to be helpful to the kitties.
Well this morning one of the cats let us know what they thought about the new carpet pieces. In the 2nd picture they left us a "Poopy Present" in the pan!!! On top of the new carpet piece.
I asked Jimmy who he thought it was and he said, "Lets line the 3 cats up and slap them around and see who talks first, well meows." Funny...
But he wasn't any help. Of course I had to clean it up because, it was my bright idea and I immediately eliminated Daisy...it wasn't her....she was innocent of the evil deed and it wasn't Hopalong...So that just left Jybow, Jimmy's cat. But, I'm just guessing.
The carpet is being removed today and things are returning to their former states. The cats don't like change and I guess this is something you would have to put in place right away, like when they first arrive into your home as little kittens.
I can't believe they did this...they're grown cats and they NEVER have accidents.
