10 month kitten always goes for a poo when I'm cleaning her litterbox

    Eevee is so strange, I was cleaning out her litterbox this morning after she had just done a poo and as I was just putting fresh litter in the box she poos again!. She does it every single time even if she has literally just been for a poo. It's so funny and I don't mind but sure is strange!

    She is marking her clean litter box as hers! :) Cats like to do this. Mine often jump in and pee right after I have cleaned their litter boxes and put in fresh litter. Granted jumping in and pooing right after she has pooed is a little unusual but the principle is the same. :)

    Virtually everytime I scoop her littertay Tali waits for me to finish then immediately jumps in and does a pee. Personally I think she is mocking me lol

    Katie used to do this every time! Cody watches me clean and put fresh litter in to make sure I do it properly but then satisfied just wanders off until he actually needs to go!

    You're lucky she waits. I have them going in while I'm cleaning the tray;)

    lol yes mine do the same thing! They cannot wait to jump in and do their business- and sometimes will get in while I'm still filling them.

    Missy's not that bad, but invariably she will christen her tray just as soon as I've cleaned it out and put down fresh litter !
