Ask a Vet Archive

When it comes to your pet's health, there's no such thing as a dumb question. Search questions real clients have submitted to our popular Ask a Vet Q&A series, and then submit a question of your own.

  • Sometimes, my cat uses the litter box and doesn't cover it up. Is there a reason, or is that normal?

    This can be normal behavior for some cats and is not anything to be worried about. Cats generally cover up their feces from instinct. In the wild, this helps to hide the feces from any potential predators. This instinctive behavior may not be a strong in your cat as it is in others.
