Where to put water/food/litter tray in the first week

We are getting a new kitten in about 10 days (obviously ridiculously excited!)

I know that typically we need to keep the litter tray away from feeding and water bowl but for the first week or so we plan to keep her in a more enclosed area of the house and I wondered if this looked like the two things were too close together. If we do keep her in this area to settle, it's hard to see how we could keep them further apart!

All advice hugely appreciated.

Just to be clear the litter tray is the grey box on the right hand side!

Looks fine to me. smile

Although if she's anything like my youngest, she will play with the water fountain so you might want to put food and water further away from each other too. That's the general recommendation anyway for cats to have their water bowl away from their food.

Oh wow. Thanks. Didn't know food and water should be separate too! (So much to learn!)
