Chino using the loo ALOT!!
My little kitten Chino, 10 weeks old now, is using the litter box, especially to poo (excuse the language) ALOT! He basically eats a little bit then goes to the litter box and leaves a parcel. I clean the litter box in the morning when i wake up and in the evening when i get home, sometimes before I go to bed too and each time it's full!
He is being fed Royal Canin Baby Cat and he doesn't eat all that much. Really only nibbles now and then. He has fresh water every morning and evening. He doesn't eat any of our human food, and we've given him some pouch soft food, but again, not much as he hasn't got a huge appetite.
His "solid parcels" arent really too runny and he isn't behaving weirdly.
But this morning he left a "parcel" at the bedroom door, with his litter box half a meter away.
I know kittens do use the loo alot because they haven't got big stomachs, but it seems this is excessive for one little kitten.
I don't mind cleaning his litter box so much, but it's becoming a problem because his litter box gets so full that he's starting to step in the "parcels" and it's getting on his paws and between his little toes...then he jumps on our bed and couches and leaves little paw-poo stains. He also flings the litter when cover it, which leaves poo all over. Luckily we use the crystals that dries it up pretty quickly, but also becomes sticky.
