[quote=Charmed654321]Is this a long-haired kitten? If so, you might want to trim the fur around her butt.
Have you watched her use the litterbox? Is she perhaps going against the side and it's splashing back on her? Or is she sitting in it?
She is a medium hair gal, and I thought about the hiney hair trimming--I thought maybe she just wasn't good at keeping all that hair clean. I did that two days ago, and it is now a clean area, but her little labial area (it that is what you call it on cats), is always a bit damp. When I pick her up and check it always looks like she just peed. The litter box suggestion is a good one, and it does look like she goes against the corner. It's almost like she has a little leaking problem--does it take a while for kittens, like human babies, to control their bladders completely?
She's eating, drinking, playing, all the good stuff, it's just this one little aspect that concerns me. Sometimes when she gets up from the couch or bed, there is a little wet spot where she was sitting. It's like she just forgets to go the litterbox. Kinda like when my daughter was being potty trained, and she would not like to leave whatever she was doing to go, and then was too late.
I will also try the suggestion to reduce the amount of litter in the box. That could certainly be a factor as well that I had not considered.
Thanks for all the input. She is a wonderful little kitty, and will see the vet on Saturday morning, but I wanted to see what other folks had experienced as well.
