The Reason


It's Grover. Listen, there is a reason I don't cover my poop in the litter box, OK? And the reason is because of the phrase, "He thinks his shit don't stink." Well, yeah, exactly.

I'm smart and cute and funny and acrobatic and, also, I'm going to be 12 this year so I know a thing or two about a thing or two, not like big, fat Pig who is only going to be 7 this year and who thinks licking the inside of the armoire is a hobby.

But that Pig, he just cannot leave my poop alone in the box. Oh, no. He has to jump right in there and make a big honking show about covering it up. Like he's all clean and neat or something...and I know he's not because sometimes in the summer his skin is oily between baths and he leaves marks on stuff and usually in the winter he is flaky and leaves snow wherever he was sleeping and even on your clothes if you pick him up.

So this is not an issue of hygiene by any means. This is, I believe, an issue of dominance. And Piggy thinks he is the boss of me because he weighs three times what I weigh and because he's just freakin' GIANT and because he's PINK (which he thinks makes him super-special), whereas I am lean and svelte. and have wooly fur like a lamb.

And the reason I want you to know this is because it explains why Pig has bite marks on his neck this morning.




P.S. Piggy said to tell you he is not only not afraid of me, but that he is going to kick my butt as soon as I publish this post.

P.P.S. To that I say, BRING IT, PIG!

Hey, Grover...when I first came to live on the island, I didn't cover my poop either...Wally always went in later and did that job for I'll do it myself cuz I don't want Wally lauding that over me!

I always cover my poops, but Harley just leaves his out in the open. Boys!

Hey Grover and Little Pink Pig, very nice to meet you : )

You don't cover your poops?! I find that is the best part of the litter box experience. Sometimes I get so involved in covering and digging that my Mum yells at me to get out of the litter box!

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Hmm, not covering, Sadie does dat...she wants to be boss. We sure hope da new food fixes things.

Karen Jo said...

Hi Grover. I think it's nice of Piggy to cover your poops for you. Does Piggy taste like mushrooms, as well as smell like them? Or would you know what mushrooms taste like?
