I found a baby cat who was about 1 month old I think. I can't bring her in our house because we are not in ground floor and some other reasons. I keep her in the parking and she can go out and back in the parking anytime she wants easily. Also I've made her a little house to rest in there and get warm in this winter. But after 5-6 weeks I saw she had pooped in that house, while there is lots of soil around in and out of the parking. And another thing is that I never have seen her lick herself.
She is from DSH race and got medium hair.
So this is my question: can a baby cat (kitty) who has lost her mother, learn on her own how to hide her poop and clean herself by licking? Are these skills instinct or must be taught by their mom?
Thank you for your answers.
