So I'm probably paranoid because of the issues i had with my old cat but when should I expect them to poop? We've only had them 24 hrs but its not like they're timid and too scared to go to their box. Also the wee boy is wee'ing fine but the girl has peed twice on my bed!

Keep them in 1 room to start with along with the litter tray. What age are they? Can we have pictures please

I posted pictures in another post but happy to oblige! They're 8 and half weeks. They've only been in my room and are happy playing and running around. I'm just concerned about the poop because my old cat was severely constipated.

So she's peed another 2 times on the bed. I really don't know why as shes using the box all the other times fine. I've got a mattress and duvet protector on now but i cant keep washing duvets as they take forever to dry!! I'm washing everything with bio laundry liquid and also a wipe of surgical spirit. Any tips?
Ive got their 1st vet appointment on Wednesday so I'll mention it then.

Which litter are you using?.

Shut the bedroom door, don’t let her in or it will become a habit. Keep putting her in the tray at regular intervals.

A tray each? Might be an idea so they aren't battling scent wars.
"This is my tray" " oh, ok, I'll go somewhere else"

I would move them from your bedroom to a different room. I used the kitchen as it had wipeable floor. I would have 2 trays. What litter are using?

Plump82 Mon 30-Sep-19 10:04:22

They're using catsan which is what they were using before we got them.
We have 2 trays for them. I've had them next to each other and separate.
Shes not peeing on the floor so no concerns about wiping the floors.
We're already putting her in her box but she just jumps out.

Thanks for all the suggestions but we seem to be doing all them already 🙁

Dont have her in the bedroom

Plump82 Mon 30-Sep-19 10:57:33

It's hard to explain the lay out of my flat. But its basically one long hall with rooms off it and the main door in the middle. They can't get past the main door as i can't risk them getting out. So if she wasn't in the bedroom them it would be a tiny bit of the hall and my bathroom which is tiny. It won't even fit their 2 litter trays
