So I just adopted a 3 month old kitten and he’s adorable!! He is a bit mischevious (climbing on counters, biting my ankles when he gets excited), but the craziest thing that drives me nuts so far, is the fact that he rolls in his litter box!
We changed the litter pan to a hooded one and also changed the litter from Arm and Hammer to the pellet style Yesterday’s News.
Do kittens outgrow this type of behavior??? Aghh.
He is a cutie pie though! His name is Booker!

Awww he is SO cute!
My oldest cat has done that his whole life. It’s weird lol. He will watch us clean the cat litter box and then run in afterwards, curl up, and take a flipping nap haha. At least it’s clean I guess?

@MrsJenBee: My kitties used to do that when they were kittens. Now that they are 6, they just like to wait until it’s clean and promptly take a poo. I’m sure he will grow out of it!

We have three cats and one of them likes to just plop down in it and lay in there. Thankfully, she does it when it is clean but still, yuck. Animals do strange things. One of the other cats always watches me clean the little box, I am guess he is amused I am stealing his poop!
Just try and keep it clean is the best advise I can give you! You don’t want to punish him for that because then he might think going potty in the box is a bad thing!

Mine will walk around the box as one of us is cleaning it out – we call her the supervisor, lol.

@taylorkirby: Yeah, I definitely don’t punish him for it. Gahhh. I THINK he does it when it’s clean, but I don’t know when exactly he’s pooping. But I do check for poop twice a day and keep it as clean as I can!! Aghhh! Curse you, naughty kitten!!
I’m just hoping he’ll grow out of it.

The cat who watches me clean the litter box sometimes steps in his own poop and then likes to come snuggle in bed. Super awesome haha. I am sure he will grow out of it eventually…maybe…hopefully!

Add another one to the “my cat supervises me when I clean the litter box” club. Although he does this when I clean other things too – the floors, the bathroom. Just sits there and watches…

@MrsJenBee: What a cutie! One of ours loves laying down in the litter box when it’s clean and just hanging out. He’s 2 years old now. He may outgrow it, he may not! Just give baths as needed and remember how clean of animals cats truly are. I know it’s weird to think that they’d be clean after laying in a litter box, but cats as you know are incredibly OCD and hate not being clean.

He is a handsome boy! The litter thing would for sure gross me out though. Just count on it being clean. lol
