    Well reading this made me smile. I had very clean cats, they did the same thing I used to think they had OCD they covered their mess for so long.

    I found a new kennel for my boys, and the owners said when it was -20 , someone left a box of kitties on his doorstep. Its a wonder they didn't all die, but I saw them, very robust and enjoying the country life now

    Cats do tend to have a case of OCD. Especially when they clean themselves. My goodness... thats all they do. Then... *hairball*

    I used to crack up at my cats when one would want to clean the other. But.. each of them wanted to do the cleaning NOT be cleaned. Sooo funny! The stronger one would always win... he would end up putting my princess into a wrestling hold... pin her down...and clean away.

    Glad it made you smile. It made me smile too... just thinking back at those moments.

    Awwwww.... I am SOOO glad to know that the cats were brought there instead of just left out on the street. TOO MANY homeless kitties out there.

    I don't know what kind of person dumps animals like that. I would however like to dump them somewhere , somewhere just as cold.

    Hey girlfriend... you're singing my tune. I don't get people. What kind of cruel world are they living in? To take an innocent animal and just tossing them out on the street with NO regard... NO shelter... NO food.... is just SICK, WRONG and CRUEL!! Especially when there are shelters that are willing to take them.

    The way I see it... KARMA will get them!!!!

    All the animals I've ever had have been saved. They were homeless kitties... that some how found their way to me. They were the most loving animals. Almost like they appreciated me more for saving them. Now, I'm working with 4 ferals.

    Yes. Fur babies from shelters are the best.I believe they choose you.

    I volunteered at a shelter,it was walking the dogs The saddest part was getting attached, and then coming in one morning to find they had to be put down, because there was no room . I adopted far too many at one time So, I had to stop volunteering.

    I had one gurl who NEVER saw a need to cover her "stinky" (I guess she thought her $#/+ didn't stink!), and I was the elected coverer. I had one gurl who, if she saw a "turd" in the box simply would not go in; she kept me hopping to keep from having to pick up her poop from outside the box. As long as I kept it clear, there were no problems. My Maine Coon gurl is a super-coverer and will spend time doing the job, with her huge paddle-feet.

    My male cat is the Cover King. He cover with litter, then he takes the liner and folds it over, then he scratches the wall. I had to stand a piece of plywood against the wall behind his box to keep that from ending up on top of his box. He likes to police me while I'll cleaning out his box and follows me to the bathroom and watches the poop as it is flushed down the toilet. The clumps go in a bag then a covered pail and then to the dump.

    One of my gurls used to sit and supervise ANYONE who came to my home to do any kind of work.
