I come to you with a very serious problem Cat Help/Pictures Forum. I apologize in advance for the terrible quality of my phone.
My kitten is a roughly 4.5 MONTH (previously i said year) old male who is not neutered.
he's a bit of a mischievous cat
but overall seems pretty happy and content
i leave him home alone during the day and he's pretty good about that, seems to sleep most of the time and play with his toys, doesn't really get into any trouble, until recently i started coming home to this.......
i thought maybe he was getting bored during the day and playing in his litter, he never messed with it except for poop/pee while i'm home...but mid last week he started digging in it while i'm here...he just walks up and either stands outside it and scrapes across the outside edge, seemingly trying to dig to the bottom, then switches to another corner....sometimes he'll be inside it and get the litter all over himself, leg deep in it, other times he'll stand outside not even looking at what he's doing while he swings his paw around
my question for you, Cat Help/Pictures Forum, is a) why would he be doing this? and b) what can i do to stop it?? the litter has been the same kind since i got him at 5 weeks old, he does it whether it's old or new litter, clean of all waste or not.....i don't really want to scold him for fear that he'll just not want to use his litter box anymore
flapjack begs for your help
tl;dr; kitteh digs in his litter, always around the edge though...maek it stopz
