    It never fails, every time I clean the litter box my cat comes running to do her business. I have to wait a minute, then clean it one more time. Is it just me?? :lol::dizzy:

    Mine does the same.

    Her litter box is in the downstairs bathroom. She gets upset if you use the restroom without her in there.

    She's a bit of a weirdo.

    Yes, our newest kitty does that. It's funny! However, I feel your pain!

    My cat's litter box isn't in the bathroom, but if I go into the bathroom he comes sprinting in as if it's the most fascinating thing ever. He'll even stop eating (and he LOVES his food) to come running in. If I close him out, he whines and bangs his paws on the door. So strange!

    My two cats do that, as well. It's a little bit annoying.

    My cat doesn't do that, but she puts her head over her food bowl while I try to fill it :rolleyes: Food gets everywhere all the time :tired:

    My cat will sit there the entire time I'm cleaning out his litter box and then wait until I'm walking out before he uses it. But he does make sure that I see him.

    Atleast your cat doesn't get mad at you and poop in the closet.

    Though when emptying the box, its like she is embarrassed and either hides or wont look in my direction. Just a joy to empty the litter box of my SO's cat.

    This thread totally made me think of this picture.

    One day I went to clean out the litter box and my one kitten had just gone but missed the litter box. My other kitten came in and smelled the first cats pee... she was SO upset that the other kitten didn't cover up her pee that she started scooping all of the litter out of the litter pan to cover it. She probably scooped out half of the litter box before we stopped laughing!

    My little cat loves to poop in the pan and when she's done, she speed races through the house.

    My male cat does that too; it's the funniest thing!

    My female cat uses the litter box immediately after I clean it every single time. Or she will go outside and want to come in to use the litter box; I keep telling her that the whole backyard can be her litter box but she just doesn't listen.

    Yup. My cat, who now lives with my mom, does this every single time without fail. When we first got her, my mom's little dog would go poop in there too! We never trained him to do it or anything. It was hilarious. We had to raise the box because the other dog would eat the poop though. I think that's more normal dog behavior. Gross.

    Our little female cat does the same thing, come in from outside to go! One day though, I watched her out the window. She dug a hole to China(this went on for a loooong time,) then she ran in the house (we have a pet door,) and straight to the litter pan to poop!!! :lol:

    Learner4life, that is hilarious!
    My older cat (see avatar,) is the cleanest, smartest cat in the world (of course.) Last night, he was sitting looking into the litter box with this disgruntled look on his face because he had to go potty and the little one had just pooped AGAIN! I went over with the scooper and big Red moved to the other side of the room while I scooped and sprayed. When I was finished he went in and did his duty!

    That is why my cat's litter box is a plastic storage tub. My mom's dog would eat her poop. Eew!
