My husband and I adopted two female 8 month old cats (kittens) who are sisters and they are both spayed.Their names are Ebony and Ivory (or Ebby and Ivy). We adopted them through CAWS, an adoption group inside PetSmart. The adoption group didn't know much about their background/past.
When we first brought them home they seemed to adjust good the first night. We decided to move their litter box from the bathroom, to our bedroom next to our bed so they could sleep with us but could still use the potty without leaving a mess everywhere.
Well the other night, I realized Ivory was trying to find the litter box (my husband moved it back into the bathroom) and she went over to our kitchen table and was going to start pooping when I softly picked her up and quickly carried her to the litter box. (luckily the poop landed on the bathroom floor and not the carpet) I set her inside the box and was talking to her the whole time that I wasn't mad that the litter box was here. She ran off and I put the poop in the litter box so she would know.
I feel like its partially OUR fault because we had to keep moving the litter box. But that was Monday night and shes acting weird. She's isolating herself from our new little family (my husband, me and Ebony and Ivory), and she won't play or cuddle as much. Her sister, Ebony is playful and she loves to cuddle so maybe Ivory is jealous or she thinks we aren't giving her enough love and attention??
Or she feels abandoned? (my husband I work 9am-6pm normally and he works Mon-Fri while I work Tues-Thurs most times) so maybe Ivory feels like we don't love her??? HELP!! I have not idea whats going on.
