Me and my mother finally got the kitten we've been wanting for a while, and she's been good so far except for her not wanting to poop inside the litterbox. We got her Wednesday and she didn't pee till Thursday evening, and she pooped for the first time today, this morning, by the front door, then a little bit later, she pooped in the corner in the kitche, and just now, she pooped behind the dining room table. She pee'd twice in the litterbox, but for some reason, she won't poop in it. She was in there for about 5 minutes, and I noticed her squatting down but no urine/poop coming out, and she moved around a bit and still nothing. She was scraping around like she had done something and got out. I thought she might have had just an urge or something, so I thought nothing of it, till she got behind the table and I heard her meow really pitifully, so I lookd where she was and saw her squatting, and a light dribble of watery poop was coming out, so I grabbed her and put her in the litter box which was less than 5 feet away and she finishes, and covered it up. If it's any indication of anything, I think I heard a fart or something. Any ideas of what could be the problem? My mom said she noticed her meowing when she caught her pooping outside of the litterbox. Sounds as if she is in pain or something. Sorry to be so long winded lol. The place we got her from was really dirty and smelled bad and she is really skinny and underfed, so we're going to take her to a vet soon. I hope someone can help me. Thanks!
