Minuet usually wets just inside the mouth of the litter-box - which is why sometimes she misses its lip and her water goes in front (and then under) the box. She then turns around, sniffs it and climbs out. Often, she climbs out over the side, which of course is taller than the entrance. Why she does that, I don’t know. Other times, she leaves by the proper entrance/exit. When she does that, she invariably leaves her paw print in the wet litter, and then tracks it across the vinyl I have on the floor.
She never used to do that. Now she does it too frequently for it to be accidental. I can tell she’s done it before I look into the box, because there is a track of diminishing little paw prints leading away from the box. Perhaps it’s her way of signing her artwork.
