Hi all!

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I hope I didn't break any serious protocol by posting my problem (kitten poop) before my introduction. I'm Kim. I have 1 husband, 1 daughter and 2.5 felines.

I got Oreo (you can guess what she looks like, I'm sure) shortly after my husband and I started dating about 15 years ago. She's a loyal old lady who snuggles under the covers with me every night. She's the only cat I've ever had who I actually picked.

Kansas also lives with us. He was born in (can you guess?) Kansas and was adopted by my parents during one of their visits to us while we still lived there. When my mom could no longer deal with the allergies we took in Kansas and he's really spiced up our home. He's about 5 years old and can still bring out Oreo's inner kitten.

A little more than a week ago we found a lonely stray kitten and couldn't bear to take him to the Humane Society so we've been taking care of him. We've been calling him Ben, but I'm not sure if we're keeping him. It's so easy to get attached but I'm not sure we can really handle a third.

Through the years I've picked up strays and due to circumstances have found them new homes (usually after spaying/neutering.) I still miss them but I'm sure they are happy.

Anyway, I'm really glad I found this site. I thought I was gonna lose it over the kitten poop, but salvation is around the corner.

I look forward to future posts...

Thank you to everyone for such a warm welcome.

I think the diarrhea problem finally worked itself out. The day I was going to go find the Bene-bac I found I was picking up actual formed poop piles from the carpet instead of the runny stuff.

I think the extra litter pans are helping. I might want a couple more, but I'll give him another day to see how much he improves.

I was impressed with how much he loves the kitten attract litter. That little nut loves to dig in that litter. He never poops where he digs, but he does poop in it. We're still having to put him in the box upon waking and after eating. But he does climb in on his own more frequently now.

I also tried Spot Shot for the poop stains and it seems to work better than the other stuff we've used. Especially if I can catch it right away (though not always possible.)

If you can't tell, I was taking notes as I was reading through the different threads. There's an enormous amount of useful information here.

Now I just need to get the older cats to stop eating the kitten food and get Ben to start drinking water from the bowl. I think he must be sneaking water when I'm not looking because I do see him urinate.

I'll post pictures as soon as I get some of everyone and not just the baby.

Talk to you all soon.
