Good idea.....then he won't blame you for getting stuck either.

I don't think I could stab a little one either. They're so delicate and squirmy.

He was very brave at the vet's, and gave everyone there a piece of his mind.  The vet says he's in good condition, and about 6 weeks old.  Some little girls were in the waiting room with their mom when we came out of the exam room.  They wanted to pet him.  He was out of sorts, but I let them pet him on the head.  They wanted to hold him, but I said no to that.  He wasn't in the mood, and he didn't need that stress; plus, he would have scratched them.

Well, he may not look like a tortie but I suspect he has the tortie attitude! Good to hear he got a clean bill of health report from the vet.

He's about the same age as Kilmouski. Smile I'm glad he's in good shape and that he was good at the vet's. Attitude is a good thing! That means he feels good enough to be feisty.

We got the kitten that we believe to be Eliot's sibling to walk into a crate. She's settling in, not too wild. She is bigger than Eliot, but has very similar markings, and was hanging in the same alley where Eliot was found.

She let me pet her and look her over, so she's not really feral. The alley is next to some apartments, so people probably fed her a little. She's thin, but she got plenty to eat today, and she's sleeping peacefully now.

Eliot's sister is not well. She's had bad diarrhea. I've got her on Albon and some home made kitten pedialyte. I'm hoping she just ate too much yesterday.

She's still pretty much under the weather, though she seems to be doing a little better. We've had to line her enclosure with newspaper as she won't use the litter box yet. I'm thinking of putting some newspaper in the box, but I think the main issue she is having is painful elimination. Once that clears up, I'll worry about the litter box.

Maybe I should give her some pumpkin. Has anyone tried that with kitties? Does it work?

Do think a small bit catnip tea would help or even a small bit of yogurt
help.

We named the little girl Rory. She's bigger than Eliot, but she looks very much like him otherwise, and their voices are nearly identical. Her tummy troubles seem to be clearing up, but she's still not using the litter box. She came out and sat with Eliot and me this afternoon. Eliot's nose was out of joint, and he moved away from her and sat with his pal Tony Rings. Everyone had a little nap, and Eliot woke up a couple of times to give Rory the stink eye. She just snuggled in the crook of my arm and purred. Now she's complaining loudly about being in her crate, but until she figures out the litter box, she just won't be allowed much freedom, I'm afraid. I'm going to try her on some different litter, and maybe with a different type of box and see what happens.

The litter magic for Kilmouski was the wheat stuff in a tiny box. I hope you find the combo that works for her.

It might also help if you put one of her 'accidents' in the box.....kinda give her the smelly clue that is what the box is for. Some kits need to actually be put in there and have their paws manipulated so they're digging in the litter. That usually does the trick. I'm sure you've tried that already, but trying again doesn't hurt. Has she seen any of the others using the box?

Today when I got home from the pet fair I discovered semi solid poo in the litterbox! The weirdest things make me happy.
