Bolt had been climbing out of this litter's box for a couple of days. Razzle and Frolic both have their day apart litters in the same room. Today they got moved into the puppy room to stage 2, but the last couple of days it was not unusual to go back there and find Bolt curled up sleeping with Razzle on the floor. We're a few days later going to stage 2 for various reasons.
Last night as I was getting ready for bed, I looked in and saw him climbing into the large litter box meant for Razzle and Frolic to use if they need to, tail wagging (he was out in the room). They have not been introduced to a litter box before the move today. They've been using a pad under the Rascal grate, like we just started using with the last litter of puppies as the first stage. I watched as he stretched out to pee in the box, and then started wagging his tail as he was getting back out of the box. After I took my shower, I looked back in on them, and they were all back in their boxes, so I thought Pam had put him back in. She hadn't. She told me this morning she saw him climbing back into his litter's box.
Today when I went back to get him after we had set up the next stuff in the puppy room, he was sleeping in the box with Frolic's babies. He's one of Razzle's pups.
We've never had anything like this happen before, but they are a lot of fun.
