Why do Cats Roll Around in a Litter Box?

Category: Pets

It is not unusual for cats to roll in litterboxes. This behavior is generally a form of dust bathing and may help the cat scratch an itch. Some cats prefer to roll in particular types of litter or like to roll in their litter right after a litterbox is cleaned. If this behavior bothers the cat's owner, making changes to the litterbox and litter might stop the cat from rolling in litter.
