Do kittens always get poo on their paws or arms or legs or tails?

weve got an 18 week old little girl called Hoshi but she more often than not seems to get poo somewhere on her when she’s been... does this happen to everyone? Just don’t want her treading poop into the carpets!

We try and catch her and baby wipe her and the poop is normal (not too wet not too dry) and we’ve tried all sorts of litter, wood pellets, paper pellets, clay stuff, clumping one and sainsburys own but nothing seems to male a huge difference!

We have to therefore bath her more regularly to keep her clean! Please help!

I have heard that a lot of them do tend to tread in it. Have you tried placing either some astro turf or carpet cut offs at the entrance to her little for her to almost wipe her feet on? I have heard of some success with that.
But also she may grow out of it right now her legs arnt very long and she maybe just had trouble getting around it :)

I use very large litter boxes now

You can google "litter box hacks" for good ideas too

I have seen "poo foot "threads on the lair often with young kitties
And am sure their mums n dads will chime in!

Hi there , not every time shushhhhh please do not tell Cleo I am discussing her private things with you all
Cleo never covers her wee wee or poop she paws at the side of the litter top box
So sometimes she steps into (( IT )) again shushhhhhhhh
We get little paw. Poop marks leading away from her litter try ,
I once gave her mackerel and it did not agree with her tummy gee did we have a great day cleaning the tray cleaning up Cleo ....
when I did my reasesrvh I read that the sphynx doesn’t cover over their wee wee or poop , and you would get poop prints from time to time ...
is your litter an open one or does it have the cover with flap ( I think everyone removes the flap bit )
Since my Cleo as got bigger I’ve noticed she only goes as far inside to do her (( you know what )) then turns and comes out
( she actually missed the target a few times. with her tail out of the tray )
But again please shushhhhh be discreet with the personal information il never get her a husband
Hugs
Anita & Cleo xxx
