What does your cat do after s/he poops?

Just a fun topic! Snowy does the cutest thing. We can always tell when he pooped as he gets a burst of euphoria and will do his nascar racing up throughout our place. He understandably must feel good after taking a dump . Also, the temporary weight loss makes him a bit more aerodynamically efficient .

Jeckel digs and digs and digs and digs in his litterbox. But its not even just the box he went in, he'll go rearrange the entire contents of the other literboxes as well. He'll literally be digging around for like 20 minutes. He's just very thorough, I guess! Quite annoying when you're watching a movie and all you can hear his him playing in his box...

Dante does the opposite. He gets the zoomies BEFORE he poops. If he's being overly rambunctious I ask him if he needs to poop and a little while later he usually does and I go and clean it out and he's all purry and tries to help.

Sometimes though when he's covering his poop he'll step in it so he'll need a quick dunk in the tub which he doesn't like but I don't need poopy paw prints everywhere.

Fozzy does this too!! Sometimes though, I think it's because he has a little dingleberry stuck on him and he's trying to run from it.

Re: What does your cat do after s/he poops?

Usually mine digs around for a bit, trying to cover it up.. even when if it isn't being covered(scratching at side of litterbox). Cats seem to try to bury not only their feces, but their throw up or another cat's and even pieces of cat food laying on the floor they don't eat. Things they are just not interested in at the moment, they try to get rid of it.. I wonder why they do that?

Nina starts up the hall and tries to bury everything, including the wall! Sometimes she misses the bm though.

Marmalade was my post-poop-runner. We called it running-the-stink-off: "There goes Marmy, he's runnin' the stink off!"

So runnin' after poopin' is pretty common...but what about doing it before? Dante goes freaking nuts running back and forth meowing his head off.

Maybe he's just announcing impending evacuation? Or 'shaking-it-down' in preparation for potty-time?
