Before reading this... Kitten IS already scheduled for a vet appointment next week (far away, I know, but the best we can do).
Now I've noticed that before she goes potty she meows a bit. The first two times it was before she went piddle... both those times were outside of the litter box (but that MIGHT be because we're still litter training her). Those meows are just kind of like the ones she does when she's talking to me.
Now I was just in the bathroom with her hoping she'd go number 2 because she hadn't since the day we brought her home (1 1/2 days ago). She went to go piddle and didn't meow at all. But then she starts meowing, a bit louder like when she can't see me and is looking for me even though I was right next to her! She squatted, meowed, got up and scratched around in the box, squatted, kept scratching around... it went on like this for a little bit and then she poo'd. It was awfully dark so I'm already worried she might be a little dehydrated (even though we're feeding her on wet and has pee'd PLENTY already).
Why would she meow like this before going? Something she's used to doing? Or do you think she's in pain?
I'll keep you updated with what the vet says!
