Does Your Cat Go CRAZY After Pooping? The Reason Why Actually Makes Sense.

As nasty and stinky as poop is, it does seems to consume a very important part of our daily lives. We all have friends that talk a lot of crap. Talking about poop is really funny too. Taking a dump is also one of the best parts of our daily routine. It’s our “me time” when we use the restroom. We can sit and ponder some serious life changing decisions without anyone bugging us. Getting rid of our body waste is quite liberating and makes us feel good and ready to take on our next meal. Every human loves to do different things while taking a dump. From reading newspapers and books to playing games, people do a variety of weird stuff during their private time and cats are no exception.

Of course, the weirdest feline freakouts occur post-poop!

It seems as if we aren't the only ones who enjoy taking a dump. Even our beloved pets aren't that different from us. Every cat has some peculiar bathroom habit that its owner is familiar with. Cats tend to literally run away after using the litter box. Almost every cat likes to do this; however, the theory behind this type of behavior varies.

The first theory behind a cat's popular potty run suggests that it's basic animal instinct.

Wild cats tend to run away after a nice dump so that predators can’t trace the smell back to them. They bury their poop to hide the smell from potential predators. Isn't that cool?

According to another vet, some cats will run off in order to burn off energy.

Using the litter box lends some extra energy to felines which they burn by running around frantically in the house. It might seem weird to us when we see them running around chasing nobody but it all makes sense now. Doesn’t it?

Now, here’s a theory you might not like. One expert suggests that cats run to get rid of the nasty smell.

One vet states that cats sprint through the house to cast off and clean any remnants of the waste. Maybe we should start teaching them how to use a toilet paper roll! Another theory suggests that they cannot stand the smell of their own poop which explains the lightning fast speed!
