One of the dreaded moments for a cat owner — kitty misses the box.


Cats are naturally fastidious creatures and will bury their waste if given the chance. And when they are outside, they prefer an easy-to-dig area.


If you watch this video (from 0:59 to about 2:00), you can see that kitty uses about 2-3 X his body length to do his potty dance.


When we take this activity and put it inside a little box in our house, it’s not such a mystery that things would sometimes go wrong.


First, we need to make sure that kitty’s facilities are excellent.

Over the next few blogs, we’ll talk about what can go wrong and why (and what we can do about it).
