Hi,

I'll give my opinion on your last question 1st. Unless you have lots of friends lined up to take the babies, get the female spayed after her first heat. During her heat, do not let her outside!

OK, the poo question...let me ask this: does one kitten bully, or dominate the other, particularly during the litter box time? This may take some observation on your part.

If one is bullying and bothering the other, while she/he is trying to do their business, this could certainly discourage the victim to NOT use the box, because he/she associates the litter box with being picked on.

For 24 hours, try separating them into separate rooms with food, water, and a box of one's own. If somebody is still doing his or her business outside the box, you'll have narrowed it down the specific one.

There's a possibility that a medical problem is causing the inappropriate elimination. You should definitely consider scheduling a vet visit to rule out any medical problems. Also, consult with your vet, and see what she/he says about his problem if nothing medical comes up.

You have been doing all the right things - keep the boxes scooped, providing multiple boxes, and changing cat litter brands.

Some other things to consider: are they consistently not using one particular box? If so, consider moving the location.

I know you've changed cat litter brands. Have you tried "Cat Attract" brand litter? I've had fantastic luck with it.

Good luck, keep us posted!

>>I put this in the wrong thread before... sorry....

>>Hello, I need a little help.. I have two kittens, one is about 9 months and one is almost 4 months. My problem is that someone is pooping all around the little box.. but not in it.. I have tried everything, I tried getting a second litter box, different types of litter, locking them up all night... I just dont know what to do... Also I am not sure what kitten it is because they ONLY do it while we are out or sleeping.. I dont understand. And the worst part is that it isnt every poop... sometimes i dont find any poo for two days, and sometimes i go out for the day and come home and find three... The litter box is almost always clean, and i am just out of ideas.
>>
>>Also one more question a little off topic... anyone have any input on whether it is better to let a kitten go through her first heat or letter have a litter, or just get her fixed right away....
>>
>>Thank you!!! and i hope someone can help me so i can keep my little babies...
