cat keeps kicking all the litter out of the box?
Hi, okay my 8 month old cat used to do this when she was little, i figured she was just playing or couldn't get used to me changing her litter, but has recently started doing it again.
I normally give the litter boxes (i have two kitties and two boxes but they both share them) a thorough scrub once a week, emptying all the litter out to clean them. I then put fresh litter in that doesn't have any of their scent on, now neither seem to be bothered by this but when Gabbie (the 8 month old) was little and i would put fresh litter in she would dig like a maniac, throwing all of the litter out of the box. She acted like she was desperately looking for something but also just really seemed to enjoy throwing the litter everywhere.
I thought she had grown out of it but then yesterday i cleaned the boxes out and the big box she was fine with, but the smaller box she just went mad and started flinging the litter everywhere! Took forever to clean up i tell you! Does anyone else's cat do this? Is she just playing with it or is she unhappy with the box in some way do you think?
