8 week old kitten has been using box well for weeks but last few days has started peeing about 2 feet away from box behind a chair. This morning he walked in the box and back out then behind chair 🙁 He poops in the box consistently, its cleaned daily, he is the only cat (my first ever), so I am not sure the problem since its just pee.

So my P-nut is finally eating well and litter trained for the most part but he won’t drink water yet. He is eating a high quality wet kitten food and I put a little goats milk in it, so he has some fluid intake since he doesn’t drink water. Do I need to bottle feed him more milk? any tips on getting him to try water?

Man this hand rearing is hard with so much info out there and trying to figure it all out. I will keep it thin and let him keep growing. Thanks again for all your advise.

I have been using about 2tbsp formula and enough wet that its thick but can…[Read more]
I have fostered a kitten since close to day one, he is 3 weeks old today!! He eats, sleeps, gaining weight etc but now he doesn’t seem content in the box and sleeps less. I cant tell if he is restless, feels bad for some reason or if its natural growth, so few questions?
1, How much sleep will he need now?? I seems to want to explore but then…[Read more]
