Hi all, Me and my other half adopted our first kitten 4 days ago. We have both had a kittens before with our families but this is our first together. She is such a sweet little girl but we're having some issues with her poo and urine. I'll firstly admit that, in hindsight, we made a mistake and didn't prepare well enough for litter training. She's also had diarrhoea since we picked her up 4 days ago. I spoke to a vet about it 2 days ago and they suggested trying some gastrointestinal food first. That seems to be helping as things have got a little more solid since we started feeding her that. Anyway, here's our concerns: She doesn't always use her litter tray. At first she had one litter tray which was in the dining room. We gave her free reign over downstairs by the end of her first day but she wasn't using her litter tray if she was in the living room. We tried putting a second litter tray in the living room but she didn't always use it - for example she would wee in the corner while we cleaned the poo from the tray. Since yesterday we've had to confine her to the dining room and have put both litter trays in there. She has used the litter trays mostly since then but had one little diarrhoea accident last night (her only diarrhoea of the day). We have tried all the common tips on getting her to use her tray and my concern is that we might be doing something wrong and that when we re-introduce her to other rooms she won't use her tray from there again. Our biggest concern is that when she does use her tray for a poo she gets it all in her fur (she's not longhaired) and drags it out with her. She also drags her bum across the floor to wipe it a bit (we've put newspaper down for this now). This has led to her smelling all the time, having poo all matted in her fur around her bum and lower tail and spreading little bits of poo around wherever she goes. We try cleaning her as much as we can with a wet cloth but we can't get it all. As mentioned - the last point is our greatest concern. I'm worried that we're not doing something right so any help/advice on all of this would be very much appreciated!
