Some critter is stealing bags of litterbox scoopings. We use a wheat-based litter that i am composting. (Yesterday it was 28°F outside and my compost was at 110°F.) Christine put five bags in the new compound last weekend. On Wednesday, i was considering how the compostable bags weren't decomposing in the current pile. In the new compound i found three bags (not five), and moved them to a specific location away from the kitchen scraps. Yesterday, i took out this week's bags and found all the previous bags gone.

What sort of critter carries off bags of used kitty litter? And why? I'm mystified. A raccoon building a bunker? It doesn't seem like the right type of stinky for a canid to roll in to hide its scent.

All I can think is that somebody is very very hungry. Cat poop tastes delicious to dogs, for example.

Hmmm. Coprophiliac, coprophagic, or just doing chemical home heating?

Ahhhhhh!

Yes, that sounds right.
