Why Does My Cat Act Proud After Pooping in His Litter Box?

Keri asks, "Why do some cats run around like crazed maniacs after making a No. 2 deposit in the litter box?"

Usually my songs are followed by all the information that I could not squeeze into lyrical form, but Keri got me here. Until there is more scientific research available, I do believe I’ve said all there is to say on the jubilation of cats who have, in fact, buried their burdens.

“The Poop Dance” by Sarah Donner

Lyrics: 

When you got a heavy burden, got a heavy load
Sittin' in your colon
You sit on the commode

I got to let it go, got to get relief
The fullness of my bowel is clogging up my steez

Get up and move
Now is your chance
Push it out and shake it
Do the poop dance

I run because I’m elated, after I have defecated
I drop my deuce like I drop my beatz
When I’m out of the box, that’s the best, I feel a sense of accomplishment
My mood is loose, but not my stools
