litter box issues
(San Antonio, Tx)
I know this may sound a little bit silly but after my cat uses the litter box she takes a really long time to cover it up. And even after that she will continue to go back over a span of 10-20 minutes and cover it again and again even though it is already covered. I just hate the idea of her spending that much time in the litter box and it gets to be a bit frustrating. What can i do? or should I just leave it alone?

well i must admit I have not come across a cat that does this. it sounds to me like your cat is very anxious about this issue.
i can only assume that she can still smell her urine etc and is distressed by this.
You could try a different type of litter which may cover the smell better for her. Also make sure that her litter tray is somewhere safe and secure sometimes the placement of the litter try can be a source of worry for a cat.
I have a web page about different litters and tray etc which you may find of interest.
Other wise I would not worry too much about it. She may just be a very fastidious cat. You should be grateful that she is so careful at covering it up. little Mo our cat doesn't very well and we have to do it for her most of the time to stop the smell.
Best wishes Kate
