"Really, where else can you go to say you've had 'cat poop coffee?'"
But as lovable as these cute kitties may be, their poop… Not so much. With recent studies drawing new connections between cat scat and human illness, their waste is gaining attention as a vast and underappreciated public health concern.
Although scented litter that reduce odor is the way to go for most of us humans, it really doesn’t benefit your cat and your cats may not appreciate the highly fragrance type, instead try adding baking soda also to the bottom of the litter box.Please don’t forget to clean the litterbox scoop, or as we call it ‘the poop scoop’ should not be forgotten, it needs to be cleaned as well,
Even so, cats don't necessarily need to feel anxious to mark their territory, Dodson explains: Wasabi, for instance, poops in the bed on normal days, too.Yes, you read that right. Alton Brown has come up with a recipe that makes these dog treats smell like – you guessed it – cat poop. Now your dog can have the satisfaction of eating a truly stinky treat which resembles the poop that he so loves.But as Jonathan Gitlin recently wrote in , a team of researchers is trying to make your cat just a little less inscrutable — by studying its poop. Kittybiome, a citizen science project (or, as the fundraising page calls it, “kitty-zen science”), works like this: Interested cat owners fill out a survey about their cat’s environment, health, and behavior; send away for a sampling kit; take a scoop out of the litter box; and send the sample back. Some time later, they receive a detailed analysis of the different bacterial strains living inside their pet.Once infected, cats then begin to excrete the oocysts for a median of eight days, dropping as many as 810 million of them in their poop. Those oocysts are tough to kill, too, and can remain viable for at least a year and a half under certain conditions.If it’s any consolation, your dog’s attraction to cat poop isn’t unusual. Many dogs like to eat poop – some will even eat their own. While the habit is certainly disgusting, there are a number of ways that you can keep your dog from eating poop. of poop every year. And though only about 1 percent of cats are thought to be infected at a given time, that still amounts to a lot of infected cat turds.I just adopted 2 girl kittens in January, and when they go to the bathroom, the poop smell is overpowering. Unfortunately for us, it is winter time right now and we have to have the windows closed. Both kitties have the habit of eating and then going to the bathroom together, so double the smell. Several times we have gone to change our baby's diaper thinking it was her, only to discover that it wasn't her but it was the cats (funny, but not really!).Ever wondered about the bacteria in your cat's gut? It's probably not something that crops up in most people's daily lives, but some of us care. The evidence for that is Kittybiome, a that's trying to survey the biological diversity in cats' intestines. Suitably intrigued, and keen to do my bit, I backed the project. And that's how I came to be staking out the litter box over the summer, armed with nitrile gloves and three poop-collection kits. You know, for science.
