Why does our kitten believe that dirty clothes hampers and toilets are one and the same?
Our approximately four month old kitten, Magsie, will occasionally pee in our laundry hampers. Understandably, my girlfriend and I do not approve of this behavior. How do we get her to cease?
She was a rescue - we found her behind the house in one of our flowerpots when she was about a month old. She took to us really quickly, and now she's extremely well-adjusted: sweet, social, energetic, everything one could ask for in a kitten. She doesn't seem to be harboring any anxieties, but who knows? She has access to all parts of our house and is the recipient of much love and attention. Maybe she's spoiled - please don't judge us. She is an only cat.
