Stepdaughter cleaning up...

A few months ago my stepdaughter came home and told my husband and I she was cleaning up cat feces off the floor at her mom's house (her mom's boyfriend cleans the litter box, which 4 cats use, once a week when he is home). She was 4 at the time. We assumed correctly that her mother was pregnant. Now she and her mother have moved back into her grandmother's house, and she told me today that she is STILL cleaning up after cats - which mostly confuses me because 4 other people live there besides our daughter and her mother. Maybe this is just an opinion we share, but it is infuriating my husband and I. I can't imagine watching my 5 year old child clean up nasty cat poop & pee off the floor and feel like a good parent. I don't know what to do about it, or if there is anything we can do. Does anyone have any opinions on this kind of thing?
