    HELP with kitten sitting in his litter while urinating

    If you change to a news print litter in won’t clump to his rear although I do find it occasionally tracked by sticking ing the long haired cats feet ( I have five cats there is going to be some mess) and lower level of litter were going to be my suggestions.

    Moving into my girlfriends apartment w/ my 10 year old cat adjusting to 2 small dogs
