|Tomas with his favorite red ball.|
This is a picture of Tomas from last week when he was 5 weeks old! Does he look like a kitten calendar poster boy or what? We didn't do a Sunday Selfie last week but wanted to tell you the poop story.
Last week Tomas was the first one to eat canned kitten food and he and Teaghan were nibbling on dry food. Which leads to... poop... then leads to using the litter pan! First a little tootsie sized poop was found in the box. Mom Colleen and I were waiting to see what happened with the litter and who would cover up their poop! Tomas and Teaghan delivered... literally... and are covering their poop! Now you would think that this is a natural event but it seems that some cats do not cover up their poop. MOL! For instance, one of my brothers has a farm in Maine and had some Maine coon mix kittens that were born in one of the barns last year. The story goes that they apparently never covered their poop! He had never seen this before but there it was... poop left out in the open. Why is this, you wonder? One theory is that some cats (an alpha cat for example) leave their poop for other cats to cover up. I'm not sure of other reasons, but whatever they are, Tomas and Teaghan knew what to do.
|Teaghan has a question...|
Teaghan is wondering if other kittens and cats cover their poop? Do you have a poop story to tell?
