I realized yesturday that Darcy likes to go into the cat litter box, take out the cats poo, and EAT IT! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/Beagleicon.gif Of course I make her drop it and cut her off from the litter box but is this normal?:? My other dogs like to eat the horse manuer but everyone I ask keep telling me theirs do the same. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/thumbup.gif But I never heard of them eating the cats...is Darcy the only one? /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/PuppyEyes.gif

It's fairly common, and yes Abby likes to snack on "Kitty Crunchies" too. Some say it suggest some sort of dietary deficiency but I think it's just a "dog" thing that served them a purpose thousands of years ago.

Traveler and Spook think "kitty crunchies" are a great treat. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/thsmiley_fistshake.gif Miss Priss usually goes outside, but I've had to be watchful while she's been recovering from her dislocated hip and using a litter box.

Right now Daisy is gated to the family room, but the litter box that Sophia has only has an opening big enough for a cat. So, hopefully, that will keep Daisy out of it.

Spencer & Sydney love cat poop too, not that I ever allow them to eat it because it is horible for them but it seems to be common that dogs want to eat out fot he "candy dish".

Buddy loves "Sprinkly kitty treats"....he tries to sneak them every so often. We joke that when he sniffs kitty behind he thinks its a gumball machine!

My previous beagle Molly used to LOVE "Almond Rocha" treats. It was always quite a challenge to try and keep the litter box accessible to the cats, but not accessible to Molly. Fortunately, Maggie hasn't discovered those little delicacies yet!

Every single dog my family ever had loved to eat out of the litter box. It's just one of those things you wish would go away, but all you can do is be creative in the placement of the box to reduce the likelihood they'll eat that and then come lick you in the face! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wave.gif

I can't say how many times Buddy has giving me a big old lick on the face and my response is "Oh no you didn't just lick me after eatting POOP!"....yuck.
