I know, I know, 2 cat posts in a row, but hey, most of the time they’re funnier than I am! And you can blame this one on blissflower1969
And omg, I would be really unhappy if my cat decided to hide her food for later. Gross. It’s bad enough the dog likes to eat tootsie rolls from her cat box so I find litter and turd bits in my carpet. If I had to deal with food chunks stolen away? Nasty.”
So you see, I have no choice but to relate to you the tale of Mina’s very favorite game… Poo Polo.
As every cat owner knows, life is a constant battle to get the turds OUT of the catbox at exactly the right time. Too early, they’re still stinky and gross and stick to the scoop, but too late, you’ve got shitty cat feet ON YOU.
Mina, being Mina, decided to make it a little more interesting.
If you don’t scoop the poop before it dries, Mina will take it OUT of the box and play with it. Yes, play with it. I’m hoping it’s only her own poop, but I have no way to tell, so I just try not to dwell on it. She prefers to take it into the kitchen or the bathroom so it will clatter on the linoleum as she plays a kind of one-player soccer/polo/racquetball with it (no one else is allowed to play along with her, nor do I think they want to).
So basically, I have learned not to look too closely when Mina is playing with something : After the first, “Oh, what have you got there?” you just start going directly for the paper towels.
