But, thanks to our fabulous "household toxins" list, I can rule out toxicity...SO, that leaves behavior...any clues as to WHY a boxer wants to eat kitty litter(and or the substances therein)???? Miss Pua seems to have a kitty litter craving...we are doing everything we can(gate up across laundry room entrance) to keep her out of it...except get rid of the teenagers(and husbands) who keep forgettting and leaving the dang gate open! UGH!!! It is SO gross...very few things will gross me out that bad...but, this does...what is the deal? Anybody know? I am sure there are others who have had this problem, since it's on the list of items(gratefully under "non toxic") I am VERY frustrated with it...
I don't know what it is with cat litter and it's contents!! Buster used to go after it as well. I'm not just talking about the poop either. He used to even eat clean litter. I finally solved the problem by putting the litter box in the laundry room with a gate that has a cat door opening at the bottom. Here is a pic of the gate.
It is a very tall gate and has a walk thru door with the cat door on the bottom. Cats can go through, dogs can't. Although I don't know if Pua could squeeze through! Anyway, maybe something like that can help solve the problem. Good luck! I know how frustrating that is!
Keep in mind that the litter itself is generally not toxic and they main reason for being there is kitty krunchies but sometimes they will lick and eat the litter....The clumping litter can cause stomach issues for dogs if they get a decent amount of it....So be careful of that....Anyone who has used clump litter think of what it looks like when urine hits it and it scoops out in that big ball....now think of it interacting with the fluid in a dogs stomach....Yuk same concept big huge blob of litter.....
:roll: Isis still does that its soooo gross when she comes in with a face full of litter ..grossssssssssssss....she doesnt bother the litter when its clean just when there are 'hidden treats' in it YUK !
we ususally catch her going in but every so often shell sneak in there un noticed...that gate is a GREAT idea
Duke will try to get into it too but we keep it downstairs and he is only allowed down there if we are downstairs. Sometimes he will try to sneak into it if I'm not paying attention. I agree completely gross
