Kit-Cat the Crazy

The other day I caught Kit-Cat doing something…weird.

It involved Kevin’s bathroom sink…

…and a full bladder…

…but absolutely no flushing when he was done.


I caught him in the act a couple more times since that first time, and Kevin may or may not have been greeted by a….semi-solid surprise (ahem) in there the other day, too.


We’re assuming he doesn’t like the new lid we bought for his litter box because I just noticed he’s not going in there anymore, so we have since removed it and we’re currently standing by to see what happens.

    too funny. We have two cats and one of them will do this from time to time, the other never does. We have figured out it is a litter box issue every time, not health-related. One time because of a new lid, one time because hubby was lax cleaning the box, and one time because we changed litter on her. They are such divas!

    Our former cat would go on the changing pad (for babies) if we left it on the counter (where it belonged!). And if you took anything fabric and let it sit on the floor for a few minutes? You know how bad cat tinkle smells! God bless him! I couldn’t leave the dirty sheets from the bed, and the poor Christmas tree skirt got it every year! How about the joy of finding a hairball in the hall in the morning? With your foot? Gee, I miss my cat!

    I don’t know anything about cats so this was so absolutely funny, specially taht his business wasn’t affected by your presence…cats are egomaniacs, right? it’s like: hey, i was here first, so wait for your turn! jajajaaaa…but it did worry me a bit the comment about bladder problems…anyway thanks for the laughs and hope this isn’t a sign of anything other than CRAZINESS as you say

    I didn’t read all the replies but my cat has a chronic urinary tract infection and does this all the time. A homeopathic doc has given us the best relief.

  5. Wendy says

    Welcome to the world of cat ownership. Our cat has recently been banished to the outside after deciding it could pee on our bed.

    I have 3 cats and this Kit Kat story had me in stitches. You never know what they are going to do. I swear they love to embarrass me when I have company. My baby cat used to grab poop out of the litter box, toss it in the air with both of his paws, let it drop to the floor, and then play with it like it was a ball. Ew, I was so worried I might come home with company only to find a piece of poop in the middle of the floor. Luckily, he has outgrown this disgusting habit. Hope Kit Kat is ok and it was just the litter box lid. Keep us posted.

    I do not always get enough time in the day to read your post.
    So I leave it unopened in my mailbox until I get time.
    This is one of those times I am glad I do this.
    I really needed a smile today.

    I concur with the others who are saying get him checked out for a urinary tract infection. Our cat had the same problem. First he started using my houseplants, then he used an empty plastic shopping bag I had left on the floor. After two rounds of antibiotics, the infection finally cleared but we had to switch to prescription cat food (Science Diet CD), which wasn’t much more expensive than the premium stuff we were buying at PetSmart. Ironically, our dog who had been eating the same BRAND of food as the cat developed a UTI several months later, which makes me question if the maker of the food changed something, but apparently cats are prone to UTIs. Get Kit-Kat checked out before it becomes serious.

    Can’t stop laughing! Yeah, sounds like he doesn’t like the lid on the litter box. At least he has chosen a solid surface material as a substitute and isn’t going on any rugs or bedding. Hope he goes back to the litter box ASAP!

    We have two cats, both male. One of them does this to my husband’s sink all the time. He’s been known to do that in the bathtub, too!!! I don’t understand it and the other cat doesn’t do it at all. So weird, but it’s nice to know that we don’t have the only strange cat! :)

  11. says

    New litterboxes can bring on revenge-potty issues, but it can be a sign of illness too, our cat, Fluffy, started finding creative places to do his business when he was in the early stages of kidney failure.

  12. says

    Ha! I know so much about this! I actually created a toilet training kit for cats called CitiKitty and so I am VERY familiar with cats bathroom habits.

    First get him checked for a UTI. If he’s in clear my 2 cents…instead of discouraging him from what he is doing I would encourage him to use your toilet instead. Litter boxes are an invention of the 50’s and not all cats like them, especially when they are not cleaned right away. Your cats instincts are to hide/cover the scent of his/her waste and your SMART kitty has figured out he can go down the sink drain an presto! – it’s gone. Use those same instincts and try and train him to use the toilet instead.

    Good Luck!

    has there been any change? Because I am worried about the little feller. I had a male cat who died from the urine problem mentioned above. I was too late getting him to the vet. So please don’t hesitate to take him in. =( He is sure a pretty little guy!

    • Layla says

      Oh, yes! He IMMEDIATELY started using his litter box when I stopped putting that baking soda powder stuff on top of his litter! :-)

  14. carol says

    Cats are just so weird. I have 3. I know im crazy. But they are driving me nuts. My one cat did her business right in my sons shoe! Gross. And than the next day, she did it right on my husbands favorite chair. Guess she doesn’t like guys. And cat urine is horrible. We ripped out lots of carpeting because of the problem. Whats the deal with all these cats?

  15. Jeri says

    cats do that when their litter boxes aren’t clean enough, change in litter, or maybe UTI.

    • Layla says

      Hey Jeri!

      Turns out is was the baking soda stuff we were sprinkling on top of his litter. I usually sprinkle it on the bottom of the pan before I put the litter in, but switched up my methods one week and BOOM. Kev’s sink became his toilet. :-) I’m happy to report things are back to normal now. 😀

  16. says

    I agree with the last comment 😉 at least the sink can be cleaned!
    And yes my cat had a bladder infection too (like somebody else mentioned) every time he went outside the litterbox.

  17. susan says

    You should potty train this cat! It clearly has the instinct…it isn’t hard to do… just imagine no more litter box! Google for instructions, I was successful getting my cat 100% toilet trained in 20 days… well worth it!

  18. Dana says

    If this isnt his usual behavior then he has an infection. Mine would always go in the sink when he had a bladder infection. Poor guy.

    • Layla says

      Hey Dana!
      We actually figured out what the issue was. Click on the link at the end of the post to read the rest of the story. :-)

    We have the same issue with our cat. Very annoying! She hated the covered litter box so we ditched that and she’s very picky about how clean it is. If I don’t scoop often enough she gets annoyed and uses the sink instead. I suppose I wouldn’t want to dig through my poo either!
