You can usually tell when they circle and smell for that perfect spot they need scooped up, told "Out" and gently deposited outside. It is best to remain with them to see if they toilet, monitor if they have diarrhea or not.If so, they need taken to a vet as there are several conditions which cause it and require treating.
