They sometimes like to do their evacuation in a set order - eg poo before pee. (Who can read a cat's mind.) Sounds to me as if she knows where she has to go but wants to do a poo and is maybe a tiny bit physically or mentally constipated.

Pooing is the more difficult for a cat so if she's still scratching around this afternoon, maybe see if you can stimulate the action a little. (I'll get you a reference in a minute.) 9 weeks is old enough to be on their own if they've been taught by a competent Mom but the house she came from doesn't sound like it was the best of environments so maybe she was used to going in a pile of other poo and can't cope with the embarassment of soiling a clean tray! (If so, that will change.)

This may be a bit TMI but there are loads of other references on the net. Just google a bit. (Hopefully, she sort it out herself soon.)

Yay! First use of litter tray is always a tense time. She'll be fine now that she's pood - it would have been on her mind and it's a big thing about settling in. (I poo therefore I belong...)

Clean up fast because she'll be peeing there shortly.

Well done her.

PS - now that she's done some clearing out, she'll maybe eat a little more.


I hope so shes barely eaten a mouthful hmm
I gave her a tiny bit of kitten milk and she drank that but hasn't touched her water..
by the way.. i love my cat grin

I think we need a picture of her, eh?

She sounds as if she's getting there. As I said, it's just a huge change for her and she could take a day or two to get into her stride.

You're doing well. smile
