Glad to get to the bottom of the mice drowning issue. I love this forum. I never knew of it until I hit cat forum on my search engine. Mitsue has many different things she does that are not similar to other cats I have owned through my life. She has never ever covered her defacation or urine after she uses the litter box. She however claws at the sides of the litter box and the door like crazy. She spends at least 5 minutes doing this. I had to buy her a litter box with a cover because she was clawing ot the walls or whatever was around her litter box. I think maybe she feels more grown up with the privacy too! :lol: She claws so much at the sides and the door that if she were digging in her litter box, you'd think she was trying to dig to Thailand to find her relatives from when it was once Siam. Does anyone know what may cause this odd behavior or did she not learn right? Oh yeah, how do you get cool little cat marks in the kitties listed under your name and such as marks or whatever they are?
