Sprinkle baking soda on the litter box floor to eliminate bad odor and kill germs and other forms of bacteria. Change the cats litter as often as possible to keep it fresh and clean, especially if you have CatSpot coconut cat litter.

Why is my kittens poop mucus?

Mucus is a normal secretion of the intestinal tract to help lubricate and moisten the linings and facilitate fecal passage. It's not unusual to observe some greasy or slick coatings on your cat's feces. It is abnormal to see lots of slimy, often clear to pale yellow-green liquid accompanying your cat's bowel movements.

How do kittens get bacterial infections?

The source of bacteria is usually contaminated water, dairy, feces or undercooked meat. Bacterial infections are common in cats that come from rescue situations where many cats are housed in the same area.

Is it normal for kittens not to drink water?

"Dehydration occurs when the normal body fluids, including water and electrolytes, fall below required needs," describes Petcha, causing problems in her energy, skin and organ function. A cat not drinking water isn't always the cause for dehydration, but often it's a fairly common reason or symptom of dehydration.

Can kittens drink tap water?

A: Certain cats seem to prefer tap water over a water bowl and a study suggests that cats drinking from a flowing water source might be drinking slightly more water than cats that drink from a regular bowl (Pachel et Neilson, 2010). It has also been tested and shown that cats prefer local tap water over purified water.

How long can a kitten be left home alone?

A: You can leave a kitten home alone for short periods of time. Kittens younger than four months of age should not be left alone for more than a couple of hours. Over four months, they can handle up to five hours. When they turn six months, they should be able to handle your 8-hour workday.
