The dirt is probably clay and they do it to calm their stomachs. If you have ever heard of kaopectate clay is one of the main ingredients. The cat poop thing could be a lack of protein. Check the food and see if there is more grain or potato than meat protein. When I put my dog on a veggie diet to loose weight he started eating other dog poop and the cats. Back on a high protein diet he stops.
