Yes, my 2 year old got into the litter box last night, i washed her hands very well. however i had posted in the past how she has been sick often lately for the past few months...
and since this happened the question popped in my head!
Could she be doing this often while we dont know it and she getting sick from it?
We have the litter box somewhere where shed have to move things in order to get to it, and i have NEVER seen her do this before last night. She also is not one to stick things in her mouth. I was also thrown off that she did this last night because she points to the kitty box and says "EWW!!!!" all the time knowing its yucky...
anyway any input on if it could be causing her to get sick a lot would help! im taking her to the dr soon but cant right now.

Toxoplasmosis is what comes to mind. This why pregnant women aren't supposed to clean the litter box. In all likelihood, she'll be fine, but I'd just watch for the symptoms described in the link.

Here's a list of diseases that you can get from cats. I would ask him to test a stool sample to rule out parasites. Try giving her some probiotics to help regularize her digestive system. Just feeding her yogurt would help a lot. You're right, that she should be having solid poops at this age.
