I was wondering the same thing...Sunday, my husband & I adopted two 6 week old kittens named Tiger & Lily (male & female respectively)
. I haven't seen Tiger use the litter box (but I'm sure he has, I just haven't seen it..), but I was in the room when Lily used the box. She did her job and got out, no grooming or anything...needless to say I was a little worried
. My oldest cat, Opal, isn't introducing herself to Lily or Tiger yet and I'm hoping she does soon so that she'll "teach" the babies how to groom.
I am less worried that she didn't groom herself (thanks to the original posting and replies!)
. But I hope she does learn, last night I was up from 1 am to 2 am...I actually (& I can't believe I did this
) put her little bum, tail and back legs under lukewarm water (more cold than hot) and wrapped her in a towel and let her dry in my arms.
