My cat is on a very predictable poopin' schedule. You could probably tell the time based on her shits.

Usually, she poops as soon as I walk in the door, around 6pm I can hear the telltale scratching.

If we have guests over usually she'll wait until everyone is seated at the table and about to take their first bite of food and decide to drop a devastating load in her tray.

I pretty much always scoop as soon as she's done with her business. I keep a roll of pet poo bags in the closet where her tray is and transfer the faeces into the bin immediately.

Some folks seem to let a weeks worth of crap pile up in the tray before dumping the whole thing. Which camp to you belong to?

We have an automatic litter box so that would be pretty much never. Once a week or so the whole tray gets closed up, thrown away, and replaced with a new one. It's way more civilized than having to play sandbox with my pet's poo poo.

Our cat just does it outside in spots I've never found so no need for scooping.

That sounds nice.

My cat will slap the side of the box because she doesn't really understand she's covering and then run off and stand around the corner and judgementally watch me scoop her poo poo like a passive aggressive middle manager.

Our cat will watch the robotic sifter run like she is trying to figure out how it works. It's very cute.

I sift the litter box once in the morning and once in the evening. I don't know why anybody would leave it in there for more than an hour or two, who wants to poo poo in a poo filled toilet?

My cat has a Breeze box. Pellets and pads. Much less annoying than that clay powder poo poo.

I scoop poop every other day or so but the pads are good for a week.

I had an automatic box but the cat kept on going back in to investigate when it would operate, setting off a constant feedback loop.

Usually I scoop at night before bed, clumping litter crew

I used clumping litter for about 5 years with my last 2 cats. It was much worse about tracking out of the box than pellets/pads.

Granted, Beans will kick the pellets out of the box once in a while, but I can just sweep them up and toss them back in the box.

Chiseling cat piss and clay out of the litter box is not something I care to do again. The pads do a really good job of keeping the piss smell down, too.

There was a shortage of pads and pellets last year, so y'all keep using clumping clay, and leave the Breeze poo poo on the shelves for me.

Daily before I shower. Just bought them a bigger box because my nearly 22 year old blind cat likes to hang his rear end half out and half in and I want him to aim better.

Cats are pretty chill. Mine was a stray I took in around 6mo old. Young enough that he learned to adapt to me and my dog. Doesn't try to escape because he knows how bad it can be outside, or how good he has it inside.

We have a gentlemen's agreement that he gets to keep his balls due to his disinterest in the outdoors, but really, it's because he has FIV and keeping his nuts helps his immune system (per several vets I've talked to about it). He's very friendly and social. The first month was a little rough, but he blossomed into the best cat I've ever had pretty quickly. He's a touch over 4 years old now, had a few teeth pulled, but otherwise a picture of health aside from the FIV.

Sometimes he stands on the table and meows at me to come over so he can headbutt my chest and stretch his front paws up to my shoulders. :3:

my cat shits on the floor directly next to the box if there is too little or too much poop in her box, it is a balancing act of street kitten from the hood preferences. After the first poo poo on the floor she starts going in the box again?

she's still gotta get spayed and hasn't had her first heat yet, so hopefully some of her weirder poo poo chills out a bit

I am a dog person but I like this cat a lot, first one ever tbqh
