I am so, so, so, so stupid I did not realize the kittens could get into the litter pan (it is big), but today I went into the room to spend time with them and found one in the litter box EATING the litter!!!!!!! I had clumping clay litter (Arm-N-Hammer) and this baby had it all over his mouth and in his mouth! I freaked out and used my finger and a cloth to clean him off and wash out his mouth, but I know he ate some. I have no idea how much or if they had all been eating it before now? Do I need to take them to a vet? Do I just keep an eye on them, if so what do I look for as possible issues? I have changed the litter to a newspaper base (Yesterdays News brand), is this safe if they eat it? WHY in the world would this kitten eat the litter?????? They are so active now (three weeks old) and I thought I had done such a good job "kitten proofing" the room I can just envision this litter clumping up and blocking his intestine!!!
