I was a bad kitty mommy the past few days
Last night Gabby left me some little poops on several spots on the carpet. She has NEVER messed outside of a litter box. I thought she might be sick or something. But then I remembered something I read here about messing outside the box and the first thing to do is to see if there is something wrong with the box itself. I knew it wasn't because of cleanliness because it gets cleaned out every day. When I was looking inside I realized the litter level was low. I had totally forgotten to putt additional litter in there to replace what came out when I cleaned it. Apparently Gabby likes a litter box that's really full. Poor thing was holding it until she couldn't physically hold it any more. I felt so bad and kept apologizing to Gabby over and over. Soon after I filled it up she used it to pee A LOT.
My kitty mommy lesson for the day is to make replacing some of the litter part of the morning cleaning.
