This has been ever since she had her kittens 6 days ago P.s. Its like shes afraid of the litter box as well

    Mmeeelloo! Your darling is trying to tell you something is not right. Please take her to the vet A.S.A.P. When we "mess" in odd places, in plain sight, we are not trying to hide it, we are trying to say, "Hey, I need a visit to my Doctor" She knows the kitchen is where you spend time and will see her situation. Please do not be mad at her, she is hurting! If she recently had a litter, she may have a blockage, tear or dehydration. Although we can not "talk" human, we CAN converse via body language, eye contact and "acting-out" but will never show our true pain as this is not in our nature. In the "wild" this is a sign of weakness and gives the advantage to our predatators. We hope this helps. Got Tuna? Mazy, Merlin and Cosmo. {and DADDY}

    Yes, a vet trip should be your first step in this case. If constipation is the problem, try a few spoonfuls of canned pumpkin. Cats like the taste and pumpkin is a great source of fiber.
