The same reason the cat wants to be on the opposite side of the door, regardless of which side it's on now.

Ours comes in from outside, just to pee in the litter box, goes right back out again.

So apparently it's possible to train a cat a little too well.

I had an outdoor cat and didn't have a litter box.  I moved kept the cat indoor for a while, when it returned to being an outdoor cat it came inside of the litter box.

 

I had to torment my cat yesterday, he hates the crate, he hates car rides so I put him in both and took him to the vet to get a teeth cleaning and a tooth extracted.  I need to give him pain meds, a single dose lasts 24 hours, and he is feeling very good.

I didn't know they had any meds that lasted 24 hours.  His eyes are dilated and he is just hanging out.

Hehehe.

Ours was sedated for an ultrasound last month. Her eyes were dilating at least until the next morning, and they warned us to limit jumping. As if you could possibly limit jumping without putting her in the crate jail. We took our chances.

"Oh no, don't jump on the bed!", cat runs the other direction and jumps on the higher window perch.

"No running, jumping or access to stairs" He took care of all three of those the moment I opened the door to the crate.

I can't get near him unless I lay on the floor.  I would never be able to hold his mouth open to get a pill in him.  I tried putting it in his food but he isn't eating today.

I can get dogs and cats to take pills. They aren't happy with me, but i've learned. Helps that they trust me.

Dogs are easy, put the pill in some peanut butter.  It helps the dogs don't let the food touch their mouth when they eat. It helps they have a larger mouth.

Cats are not as easy.

Cheese works well with dogs too. They won't spend time trying to lick it. They just eat it.

In the box is better than near the box.

Our indoor/outdoor cat sometimes relieves himself outside, and sometimes uses the box. The indoor cat just uses the box. But over our vacation week this past June there was some sort of event that upset the box and we haven't been able to get the smell of cat pee out of the room.

I am solving the problem by ripping out the carpet and tiling the floor.

Don't get me wrong, she's also happy to poop in random places. One of her current favorite sleeping spots is in our bedroom under the A/C window unit. We recently found a U+1F4A9 there.

Between foxes, coyotes and FIV I don't let the cat out.  

My last cat would be out all night, come in for breakfast, eat just a little, go back out to go to the bathroom and then come back in to eat some more.

FIV is a heart wrenching thing. Hope ours never catches it. She spends all night out doors a lot of time in the summer.

Our cat was fine with it, he was older so he spent the last years of his life indoors, eventually he did get lymphoma cancer which is common with FIV cats.

I didn't *want* ours to be an indoor/outdoor cat. He was born an indoor cat, and eventually he just kept getting crazier until we started letting him outside.
Call of the wild, or something. He immediately mellowed out when he started getting his outside time.

Two years ago he decided it was important to teach his baby sister how to hunt, and he started bringing prey *into* the house for her to finish off.
Once he was satisfied that she had sufficient mousing-fu, he stopped doing it.

So I do worry about foxes, coyotes, FIV, etc. Losing this cat would be insanely tragic. But we can't seem to keep him inside.
