I have two cats. The first is a Turkish Van I adopted from a shitty family. His name is George. George is extremely well behaved, although sometimes naughty when I ignore him too much due to homework or college.
I have a second cat, which I got for my fiance last year. We found her on craigslist, and we were skeptical at first about adopting a craigslist animal, but since that's where I got George from, I figured why not since love is hard to come by for unwanted animals.
The second cat is named Tali, and she absolutely refuses to cover her shit in the cat box. I am scooping daily, soap and water cleaning it monthly and changing the litter entirely bi weekly.
George usually gets pissed with her being a piglet and covers it for her in disgust, but she won't do it herself. The frustrating thing is, she isn't just leaving it. She scrapes the side of the kitty box, the top (it's covered), and the entrance. She digs, and digs, and digs, and digs, and fucking digs some more. This has only been a problem since after we fixed her. (Yes both my cats are spayed and neutered.) She was the product of a stray cat and we rescued her at about 6 weeks, so still fairly small, but weaned. Is this retard mode of attempted shit covering a result of her being an outdoors cat for her first few weeks alive?
My theory was that she's attempting to cover the box with brush or leaves or something that isn't inside the house.

Compatibility, experience questions welcome
I'll start with a simple weekend project that I did that was under $100 USD
5 gallon fish tank with filter and lights: 27 USD
Kitchen sponge ripped from brush: 3 USD
I used this to fill in the gaps where the betta can swim into the internal filter, they're also great for filter intakes provided they are not pretreated.
Sponge bob Ornaments: 6 USD pineapple, 10 USD spongebob
Marimo balls: I ordered a 60 pack for 30 dollars, you can find them at stores for 6-10. I suggest getting the individually packaged ones as they tend to be very dirty when from tanks.
Java moss golf balls attached to lead weights: 4 USD.
Safe Start: between 8-21 USD. Always cheaper on the internet.
Makes a good gift for someone if you teach them how to stock correctly I.E Betta, 1 snail. Etc.

Hey /ic/. I got a rat around a month back, he's the sweetest rat despite his last owner not handing him often and him never having another rat to live with. He's the type that won't chew on anything, even his chew toys. (He does tear up tp rolls and the thin handkerchief I put in for bedding. It got so many holes from him shredding it I threw it out.) Anyway, I'll be moving in about a month or two, and once I move I'll invest in a bigger cage and buy another rat (It would be a pain to move across the country with two rats and a massive cage. I doubt I could fit it all in my car.) Now, here's the thing; He's a year or two old, male, and unneutered. What's the best choice for a rat housemate? How should I introduce them and how long should it take until they live together? I was thinking of buying the "Rat Carriage House" from this site. The place I'm moving to has cats and a dog. Does anybody know if this cage is sturdy enough?
TL;DR Is that a good cage for two rats if there are cats in the house, and how do I introduce a new rat to a male over a year old who isn't neutered and has never shared his cage?
