I'm afraid that the sound of the toilet flushing will scare her to death
! Just kidding
She's an orphan, so I am the only "mommy" she has right now
. The kitten rescue site said she would start eliminating on her own at about 3-4 weeks, I think, but she is always full when I stimulate her to go potty and I was wondering what else to do to encourage her to go on her own, particularly in the litterbox. My vet did agree with me when I told her I thought she was about 3 weeks on April 8th.
I use a slightly warm, wet washcloth to make her poop; that was what the trip to the vet was about-not pooing, but the vet said that (getting a little vivid here, beware
)the poop on the thermometer was fine, and to give her another enema the next day and stimulate with the thermometer if necessary (of course, it was) and call if I still needed them, so pooping is already an issue-every other day if we're doing good, but probably more of an issue for me than for her. I have baby food (chicken and gravy Beechnut, doesn't say onions
and sometimes she's interested, sometimes not. I also have canned "Natural Life" for all life stages-chicken and veggie platter that I haven't tried yet. She runs, plays, bows up at the other cats, and sometimes just for the heck of it, and her eyes started changing color yesterday or the day before. Any suggestions?
