We've come to refer to the litter box as "the snacktray" in our house due to the fact that Raika likes to get snacks out of it from time to time. ugh...gross. She will also eat her own poo given the chance. Is this a stage she'll outgrow just like other bad puppy habits? I've now placed the catbox strategically so she can't get in it very easily but the cat can. She also tends to sneak into the cat room and poo. Is this because she smells the catbox? I know she's just doing what comes natural and if I even see her going up the stairs, I stop her and we go outside, but it's very frustrating to stand outside for 15-20 minutes with no results just to have her come in and poo in the house.
