Re: Cat litter + evidence
I thought kitty litter absorbs smells?
Depends on the kitty litter. The nice compressed wood stuff we use does (a bit) until the sawdust smell wears off. Or at least - it works for the liquids. Not so well for the solids (especially for the bolshie little cat that doesn't follow cat etiquette and bury it..
 Actually - more like somewhere on the autism spectrum. We rescued her (with her mother and 4 siblings when she was 3 weeks old - her mother was about 7 months old - and she was a very sick little kitten. Fortunately, a mix of good care and good vets meant that she and 3 of her siblings survived. However, she's never been entirely normal, even for calico-cat versions of normal..).
 Since the house is our territory, cats will bury their output when using the tray. If you see a cat not doing that, except for  then it's a pretty good bet that they consider their dumping ground *their* territory and them as boss..
