    She's so cute! When our little boy was a kitten we used to lock him in the laundry at night and he would meow and meow and meow so we let him out. Then he would come and scratch on our door and cry so we thought we'd let him into the bedroom. But then he would jump on the bed and bite us and meow at us all night. We decided it had to be the laundry and after a few weeks he eventually grew out of the meowing at night.

    He also used to pee on our bed if we forgot to close the door and he used to poo on our couch (thank god it's leather). We ended up going through about 15 bottles of the spray that gets rid of the smell that the kittens can smell that makes them want to keep peeing in the same spot over and over again. We just had to put a few extra litter boxes around the house for a couple of weeks during the day so he didn't have to be locked away in the laundry during the day. There's also a spray you can get that repels cats from peeing in a particular spot, so if she has a favourite recurrent spot she likes to go that can be really helpful!
    Unfortunately a lot of the time it's a waiting game. They do grow out of it!

    Is her poo normal or runny? Sometimes if it's funny or really smelly it can mean that their food doesn't agree with them and that they need a higher quality dry food. Our cats were on purina too and now we have to buy hills science because otherwise the cats poo is extra smelly and gross!

    Change of food and environment can also cause tummy issues, and runny poo as well, same with changing foods to often etc.

    Whatever you do, ensure you feed a higher quality dry food than whiskas or cheap supermarket brands and unless you're using a top brand food, you need to ensure wet food is offered.

    Eating only cheap low quality dry food can be very dangerous for cats and unfortunately not many know, we didnt and we lost our boy last year because of it.

    Its soft, so maybe its not agreeing with her. I might see how she goes for a couple of days and if its no better i will ditch the purina. It absolutely reeks for such a tiny creature!

    They're like tiny little fluffy stink bombs at that age unfortunately!

    Is there a brand you recommend? She has purina-im thinking that could be a cheap one. She was raised on whiskas at the breeder..

    We use royan canin which we buy from City Farmers, more expensive for sure but it is worth it. If you're going to buy a supermarket food thats fine just make sure you offer wet food also and stick to the more expensive ones than whiskas and friskies, like Optimum, Supercoat (which I think is Purina) etc. And avoid VIP petfoods dry food at all costs.

    Also if you're changing her food, make sure you wean her off of her old food slowly so that it doesn't upset her tummy any more than it already is.

    As a rescuer i always have kittens in my house from 4 weeks of age to adults. Anything under 16 weeks old is confined in a 3 level cage when not supervised. It does not hurt them and is in no way mean. They learn a routine, cant hurt themselves, and it helps immensely with toilet training. She will settle in in time its not going to happen overnight. Takes 3-4 days to 4 weeks for a cat to truly settle into a new home and routine.
