Cats’ natural digging and burying behaviours come from their instinct to hide their scent from predators and larger animals. Because of this, doing their business has evolved to be an important way cats mark their territory, establish dominance and hierarchies, and even release stress.
You might find your cat hides their business from you as an admission you’re the dominant “cat” in the house.
