The question that I have today is: How do you teach your cat to cover up it's poo in the litterbox? My cat has never done it and it smells so bad that my other cat sometimes covers her poo before he uses the box. Does anyone know how I can teach her to do this? Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.


I'm sure you all know how cat poo smells so I am desperate to find a solution to this issue.

This is my little stinker!

Some cats never cover their poop. I have two cats one covers and the other never covers. It may be that you will have to scope it out after they poop.

Give her time. NEW

Is your house a high traffic home???By that I mean children,other animals,loud noises?????Try to keep a calm environment for her to relax in.A very Zen home would be great.I have children and play dates so sometimes my cats just run and hide.My step daughter comes down with her boyfriend and he is tall.My cats scatter and hide till he is gone.Its funny because he loves cats but they do not like him at all.My cats just turned 3 and I have had them since 4 months old.

Does anyone know how I can get my baby to not be so skittish? I want to help her to be more happy here.

Showing her how to cover her poo NEW

Showing Mei how to cover her poo sounds like a good idea but I'm never there at the time she does it. I don't know it's done until I smell it and by then, she's on to her next adventure. If I ever catch her, I'll try that. Thanks for the advice.

you should try showing your kitty how to do it every time you can when they go to the bathroom. it works . I have tried it and was successful.

What a cutie!! Sometimes mine cover and sometimes they do not.I do try to clean my litter box a couple times a day because I have two cats.I think it is the cats personal habits or preference at the time.I do not think you can change this.Just clean the litter box twice a day or after the poop happens.
