    My 4 week old kittens just will not stop munching on their cat litter like it's the most delicious thing in the world! Is it dangerous for them to eat it, and if so, is there any way I can stop them other than watchin whenever they go? :confused:

    Its perfectly normal, they will soon get the hang of what its for:). Are you using a non-clumping litter? Clumping ones can block them up.
    Leave a few wees and poos in there so they can smell what its meant to be used for:)

    Yep, it is non clumping :)
    They are using it for what it's meant for, but seem to eat it as they're going about their business! :eek:ut:

    We had this and were using a clumping litter! Since we've changed to World's Best they haven't eaten any....presumably they don't like corn? Mind you even if they did it wouldn't hurt them :)

    The one I'm using now is called Catsan.
    With the last litter I used one made from newspaper, they didn't eat that, but the shop don't stock it any more :(
    Oh and Charlie just did his first poo! hooray! :D
