Cat sleeping on a grill

Fantastic Feline Fun Fact: Sometimes a cat will cover his poop in the litterbox, and other times he will just leave it uncovered.

If your cat displays this behavior, its best to take him to get a check-up, at least just to make sure there’s nothing wrong, it could turn out that you just have a very dominant cat who’s not afraid to show it! Better safe than sorry, though. Image Source
