so if you read my other post about the joys of feeding two, you know that food has been an issue. recently I have made another discovery.
I have certain corner in our dining room where I keep the food and bowls etc. on a mat. I used to feed them both there until I saw how easy it was for pine cone to steal food from mittens not to mention I think mittens felt cramped so I moved mittens bowl. its been working better id say. well, you know how when you have a cat you occasionally think you get a wiff of urine and you franticly look around for it? we that happened a few time in the dining room but I found nothing and I figured it might be the food I'm smelling (am I the only one who thinks some canned cat food smells like cat urine?). well one day I lifted up the mat and realized someone had been urinating on it! i had put a light rag down instead so i could see easier if it happened again (the old mat was black) and sure enough as i was changing the litter and waiting for mittens to please hurry up (why do they always choose to use when i'm cleaning, adds like 10 minutes to the process) i hear Pinecones claws tinkling at his food bowl. I walked past to throw something out and saw him covering his bowl with the cloth. for some reason i see him try to "cover" his food at times, but i thought check it out and sure enough, he urinated, not on the bowl but near it. it was not a lot so I'm assuming he was not simply trying to relive himself because his box was occupied (although he did use it right after) i would assume he was marking. can anyone help me figure out why he is doing this?
