Cat in liter box

Cat in liter box

I have two cats (5 months old) that I found abandoned after a flood. They did not even have their eyes opened. I hand raised them and they think that I’m their mother. They have done very well and do most things other cats do and some things that dogs do (we have a poodle). I recently moved the litter box. They had no problem with the change in location. However, there was a laundry basket with my kids socks in it nearby and now every morning when I check the box there is at least one sock in the box! I decided to leave the basket there just to see what would happen. This morning when I came down there were two socks,a small oragami box my daughter made and a plastic grocery bag in the box. I am not even sure which cat is doing this, but I cannot figure out what is going on in their little kitty heads!

Hoarder cat? by: Anonymous My cat does it too. I have the type of litter box that looks like a small tote with a hole in the lid. Its in the garage. I’ve found stacks of newspapers, plastic bags, flower pots etc. She has even taken her scooper into it. She also puts socks and other laundry items into her water bowl. Strange behavior indeed.

Litter Box Sox by: Anonymous Yep, my cat puts a lot of different things in her litter box too. Usually my son’s socks, but lately, many things. Socks, easter grass, small stuffed animals…hmmm…I’m not sure what she’s thinking. We have been wondering about this behavior for quite some time, but so far, no answers.
