I just typed these words into Google:
Why is my cat pooping in my bathroom?
I have to find it amusing. Really. I do. Regardless of why, one thing I know for sure is that it is very intentional on his part.
For the last few days, Domino (#3 of 4 cats) has decided to poop on the bath mat in our bathroom. Last night, it woke me from a dead sleep at 4:30 am. People. NOT the way one wants to be woken.
Domino is about 9 years old. He's never done anything like this. He's actually the litter box tidier. If anything is able to be seen, he takes care of it. He's like the flusher for everyone else.
I don't know. Maybe he's on strike. Maybe he's tired of the other three cats not pulling their weight, or rather, pulling their litter. Maybe he doesn't like the new bath mat and is sharing his opinion with us? Steven bought them brand new boxes and new litter, so I'm hoping that cures what ails him. (Other than this, his behavior is completely normal. Well, normal for him.)
Either way, I'm a tad bit afraid to go to sleep tonight. It's not real pleasant to wake up to reconstituted Friskies.
And, what did you type into Google today?
