I ranted about the difference between cats and dogs the other day and thought I had the upper hand in the argument until I read this comment, courtesy of Robin Roberts
You don't find a cat eating dog turds either.
I think I've been bested here. Old Bud was a damn good dog, but he thought the cat box was a salad bar. He slept a lot, but when I saw him drag is old, arthritic ass to his feet and head for the kitchen, I KNEW what he was about to do. If I didn't hurry to stop him, I would find him with his head in the litter box.
"BUD!!! What the hell do you think you're doing?" The half-deaf old fart would look at me with kitty litter all over his chin and a cat-turd sticking out of his mouth like a cigar. What is it about dogs that make them want to eat cat shit?
I don't know. But they damn sure do it.
I don't know about cats, but you can generally train a dog not to eat dog shit, if you have multiple dogs, by feeding them all some pineapple. Do that for a while, and it makes the turds completely inedible and unappealing to them, so they stop eating them.
Or so I have been told by someone who knows. I lived with my stepsister and her six dogs.Posted by: Jay Solo on September 30, 2003 05:44 PM
Can you make a CAT eat pineapple?
Bud never ate dog turds. Only cat turds.Posted by: Acidman on September 30, 2003 06:18 PM
Remember -- I have a cat or several -- whatever is left after the coyotes go through. Perhaps Bud thought it was the quickest way to neutralize the odor . . . :-)Posted by: Ally on September 30, 2003 06:27 PM
My dog, Sheila, used to ROLL in cat shit.
Then, she scared the cats away.
Thank God. I was tired of hosing her down every freaking time she found a fresh deposit.Posted by: Da Goddess on September 30, 2003 06:52 PM
I was talking to my mom a little bit ago and she was telling me about catching her terrier eating cat shit today. Too funnyPosted by: Grey Biker on September 30, 2003 07:22 PM
Yeah, those cat turds straight out of the litter box? Kitty Rocha.Posted by: Hank on September 30, 2003 08:55 PM
Dogs have a troubling affinity for enjoying the incredibly stinky. They find it, eat it, roll in it. Then try and crawl into your lap and give you a kiss.
Cats just like to leave voodoo sacrifices on the doorstep to remind you that you didn't fill their dinner bowl in a timely fashion.
If i trip over one more puked-up lizard or dismantled rat on my doorstep, i'm gonna scream.Posted by: donawana on September 30, 2003 09:22 PM
The reason why dogs eat cat shit is because cat food has a lot of sugar in it. Thus, cat shit tastes sweet to dogs. If dog food was chock full of the stinkiest crap ever produced in a factory (my dog's food doesn't stink, but my sister's cat food stinks so bad it makes me want to puke), then cats would eat dog shit too.Posted by: sugarmama on October 1, 2003 09:54 AM

I thought you'd like that one, Rob.Posted by: Robin Roberts on October 2, 2003 12:28 PM
I am having the same problem with my Welch Corgi/Jack Russell Terrier puppies. It drives us nuts, especially when they come to give us kisses and they reak of that smell. I would appreciate hearing if anything has been successful. We live on a farm with many cats and too many to be pooper-scooping after each day.Posted by: Kate on December 29, 2003 12:27 PM
