Hi,

I've got a 17 month calico tortie, the problem is that she won't go on her tray without fresh grit. The grit is changed completely every other day, but she only has to have done one 'wee' in the tray when next time she'll sit by her tray, scratch the grit bag and meow until I put some more grit in. Once she has been to the tray, she'll kick the grit up not once, but for ages at a time. Sometimes, even if she hasn't been to the tray since putting fresh grit in, she'll want more grit. :?

Every cat is different, just like us. We have obsessive compulsive behavior ourselves, such as knowing that the doors are locked, but relocking them anyway. And there are people who wash their hands repeatedly or take 4 or 5 showers a day. Your cat is just a bit obsessive, I think. Try just shaking the box of fresh litter instead of adding more, and see if that helps. I wish you the best.

Just curious. Does your cat seem to have very smell pee or poo?
If so, what type (brand) of food do you feed this cat.

Also what type of litter do you use, it is possible that the litter does not contain the smell well enough, hence the obsessive habit of sifting through the litter box.
How often do you scoop the box as well? A dirty cat box can drive some cats nuts.

Make sure you have about 2-3 inches of the litter in the box too to help your cat to be able to effeciently cover up her messies. :)

Thanks for your replies. :)

Her wee and poo doesnt smell much, only a bit. I feed her Felix pouches, she usually has 3-4 a day. I use Catsan grit, I've also used the crystal grit in the past, but she still goes mad. :?
