I just got a new kitten (9 weeks old) yesterday, and have been in the process of getting her accustomed to her new environment. Everything is going great (except for the waking me up all night bit, but that was expected), except she's not using her litter. The kitten knows where it is, because I've been placing her in it regularly and showing her what it is. She seems to understand what it is for, but when she gets into it to do her thing, she just paws at the litter and makes holes and then meows. Online consultation has suggested that maybe it's because she doesn't like this brand of litter versus whatever they were using at the shelter, and that might very well be it, but I'm not in a position to go trying a dozen litters to see which one she takes to. Is this (wrong type of litter) likely the cause of the problem or does anyone have any other suggestions/experiences? Everything else is fine: she's eating and drinking water regularly, playing like mad, and then napping after she tuckers herself out. Oh, and no pics, no kitten, I suppose.
