Ok, this is too bizarre, catnip led to litterbox usage.

Ok, so, at nighttime ive been spraying catnip spray on our little mat by our front door (very much close to the last large area rug that I dont want anything to happen to. I was afraid to spray directly on it as i didnt want to send the message that that is somewhere thats okay to use as a toilet. been doing this a couple nights now). Ive also been leaving catnip toys on the big area rug after spraying the "no mark" on it, to attempt to say "this area is for play, not for poops". But i sprayed the mat first.

Ok, so anyway, Simba saw me spray it and discovered it first, hung around on the mat for a few minutes, shortly after Boo also discovered it and they were both just chilling out on the mat. Moments later, Simba then proceeded to go downstairs and use the litterbox. (for which i vocally praised him).

When he came back up, it was almost as if Simba had said "Okay, your turn" and than Boo proceeded downstairs and also used the litterbox!!

Im sure its all coincidence but its just too bizarre so i just HAD to share!

is this purely coincidence??

Are they still using their box!?
Maybe the "Nip" mellowed them out!

They have! Maybe between that and the catinp toys i left out... ? Who knows.

(But it seems so useless scooping since ive been scooping twice a day. There might be one thing in each box each time i do it. Last night, there was nothing in there until after the catnip episode. earlier today, there was a pee in each and one poop in one. Thats it. seems like such a waste of time lol)

Keep scooping twice a day! If they are finally using their boxes, you don't want to do anything to set them back!!!
And....YAY! :p

Well, I've heard it is a gateway drug. Who knows what else it can lead to.
