We have a little kitten, roughly 8 weeks old. She is a long fur black and white girl, just a common moggy who we love. We bought her as we originally had a dog for our two young daughters, 18 months and 5 months, however the dog kept waking up the girls of a night so now the inlaws have the dog and we got the kitten, so far so good.
Anyway, we went to the vets today and booked her in for her vaccinations and got prices and ages for desexing and microchipping, all good and no problems there.
So some questions.. she will only use her litter tray (laundry) if we leave the light on during the night. Last night she had two accidents as we turned the light off, whereas each night we have left it on, no accidents. Will she learn to use it with the light off? The laundry is in plain sight from the lounge where she spends most of the day and we change the litter every second/third day and take out all solid mess whenever we notice it and aerate the rest. How long will it take her to get the hang of it? We also take her to the tray and scratch her paw through it. It's breeders choice litter.
Also, we feed her kitten dine wet food and she has supercoat kitten dry and whiskas kitten milk. Her poo is very very soft and smelly. Is it meant to be? How often and how much wet should she have?
Thanks heaps for any replies, very much appreciated :)
I can tell you anything about birds and parrots, but not much about cats!
