    we recently got our new kitten and she has settled in fine wand is very healthy.

    when she first arrived she didn't use the litter tray and has been using her cat tube so we took it out of the room and she finally used the litter tray.

    But she only used it to poo in twice and science then she has been pooing in other places under my bed but sge is still using the litter tray to wee in.

    i was wondering why she might be doing this and how to get her to use the litter tray again?

    Give her multiple litter trays. Cats like to pee and poop in different places, it's an instinctual thing. Is her poop normal and healthy?

    How old is the kitten?

    I would give her at least a couple more litter trays and spread them around the areas where she spends her time. Some cats and kittens do not like using a tray for poo when it already has wee in it. If there are extra trays, it gives her more choice of where to poo.

    EDIT: cross posted with lorilu ;)
