I just got a male kitten about 5 months ago and he's the opposite of my female cat. We found my female cat outside of our house meowing like she was abandoned. I think she was the runt. But she is very scared of pretty much everything, except for my brother, the one that saved her that day. She doesn't like being touched by people at all and she hides whenever strangers are around. My kitten loves everyone and doesn't get spooked very easily. I haven't had any strange problems with my cat, but my kitten is a different story. He likes to kick the litter in his litter box all over my bathroom floor, then he likes to roll around in it. He winds up smelling like the litter and I'm afraid to hold him because he'll have some nasty germs on him. He also likes to kick over his water bowl to get water into his food to soften it up. This results in water all over the floor. I'm not sure what I can do to stop him from doing something like this because he does it when noone is around, I've only caught him rolling around on the floor a couple times. I've never seen him kick over the bowl, but it never happened before we got him. Maybe he'll grow out of it? I'm also hoping it won't have a negative impact on the wrong habits if I do something disciplinary, like dissuading him from using the litter box for the right reason. Any help is very much appreciated.
