Hello all. Yesterday I was given a cat by a painter who had about three litters living in his house. I have no idea how old but I'm guessing about 5 weeks. He has not been eating on his own (I have to put soft food on my fingers and entice him to eat from my hands---he doesn't seem to want much), doesn't want to drink water (I give it to him with a dropper), and is sleeping a whole lot. The thing I'm really puzzled about is that he has pooped in the litter box, but pees where he sleeps (his lounge area). I am constantly putting him in the litter box (unscented good stuff) and trying to stimulate him to go but he just sits there (and falls asleep in the litter box!!!) He is such a sweetie. Yesterday was his first day here and I fed him two small meals of Nutro soft kitty food and he threw most of it up during the night. Yikes! He's constantly rooting on me but refuses to take a little kitty bottle (but I got him to drink a little Hartz nurse maid kitty formula from a bowl! ) Anyway, does anyone have any advice on getting him to use the litter box to pee? He knew to poop in there but happily pees on himself in bed. Any suggestions are much appreciated!!!!
