Why do they do that? Dogs do a lot of gross thing, but that is the worst as far as I’m concerned.
Seriously? Cats require much more protein in their diets than dogs (which is why cat food is more expensive, and cats don’t much like dog food, and dogs love cat food, and feeding a cat on a dog food diet will kill it, and so on). Consequently cat poop has a fair amount of protein. Dogs are… less than fastidious in their eating habits.
Short answer: cat poop is yummy. To dogs.
A quick search shows that and other possible reasons, too. Here’s one link:
Why do dogs eat cat poop?
You asked! 🙂
Read through that article. Interesting read… 😯
I can just hear our dogs muttering to themselves on the way to the cat litter box: “I gotta have my protein snack.”
Ah, that explaines why our neighbours old lady shepherd dog always invites herself for breakfast, lunch, dinner… if our neighbours did forget to close the big door to their garden..
We feed our cat colony outside at the front door stairs (once it was about 9 cats, now only 4 survivors until today).
Dogs eating cat poop?
Hm, maybe that’s the explanation why I did found very seldom some of it here.
Am I damaged from trying to learn about dogs? o.o All I can think is that the dog isn’t showing you love, she’s showing you that she is superior and she’s the bossing over you.
Dogs, puppies especially, try and lick their mothers mouth because that starts a vomiting reflex which provides them with dinner. Mmmm, I know, yummy right? 😀
Of course domesticated dogs don’t have to use this technique, but it’s hardwired into them. That’s why puppies lick older dogs’ face and mouth when they meet. And anyone else who they consider higher up in the chain of order. Usually with a slight submissive pose, butt down, wagging their tail.
Yes, but then the dog wouldn’t be standing on top of you.
😀 Puppies are similar to human kids in that sense that they love to climb on everyone when they play.
