Oh, Poo! Why Doesn't My Cat Bury That Stuff?

For cats, poo is a powerful communications tool.
Dear Thomasina... 
Sorry to be so direct, but why doesn't my cat bury his poo?
-- Grossed Out Cat Mom

Hi Cat Mom!
Sorry you’re grossed out. To use your word, poo can be a very big deal to us, but not for the reasons you may think. For us, it’s a powerful communications tool.  So your cat might not be burying his “stuff” because he wants other animals to know your house is his territory.

Not So Fastidious Cats

“The cat does not offer services. The cat offers itself. Of course he wants care and shelter. You don't buy love for nothing.”
― William S. Burroughs, The Cat Inside
