So I adopted a kitten from our local shelter yesterday for our 2.5 yr old dd. She is in love. I however, am not. The kitten kept me up ALL night meowing last night, and has pooped everywhere except the litter box. What do I do? Advice?I will not put up with a filthy home but I cannot break my babys heart and just get rid of the kitten. We also have an 11 month old who is in to everything and I don't want her innocently crawling into a pile of cat crap. I'm going to invest in a large crate for when we are gone but how can I get this kitten to use the litter box until then? HELP!
Edit. Thanks to those of you who were friendly about your advice. The kitten is doing great. Her first night was just a lot of adjustments. She has been using the litter box and slept with my oldest dd all night last night :) I just needed more patience, she is just a baby, after all.
And to the bitches: I was asking for advice from people who had cat experience, and I did such in a polite way. If you feel the need to get snippy and defensive over something as small as a litter box question, you need to take a pill and chill the hell out. Some of you are just nuts.
