Our kitten Antigone doesnt know how to bury her poop in the litter box... and she's capable of producing something really smelly for sucha small cat! Anyways does anyone know what to do or will she just eventually learn to do it herself? (she's ~12 wks)
My Mozart did the same when he was a baby. I alternated between gently pushing his paws to help cover, or I would have a scoop handy to cover it while he watched. Lots of quiet praises when he started doing it. He learned very quickly.
My Zoee is 9 and she never covers her's up! She did when she was a kitten and then I moved in with a roommate who also had a cat. Ever since then she hasn't covered it up. Maybe there is some truth to the showing who is the top cat
