Both my cats like to roll in the litter box occasionally, especially if I've just filled it with clean litter. My girl Alkee rolls more than my boy Zuba, and she's white! If I'm there when she rolls, I tell her "NO" and lift her out of the box. If she goes right back it and does it again, I repeat. This hasn't discouraged her from using the box for peeing or pooping, and usually after the second reprimand she will get in and do her business. Then she gets praised "Good Girl!". It's a thing a lot of cats do. I used to have outdoor cats at one time, they loved to roll on our driveway, which was quite gritty. Maybe it's the feeling that gives them a back scratch? Most animals love to roll, including dogs and horses.
