How many times a day should my cat poop and pee every 24 hours?

Most cats on a high protein, high fat and low starch/carb diet will poop once every 24-48 hours and they will pee 2-5 times every 24 hours. Kittens tend to go more often since they are very active and consume more food because of their rapid growth and higher activity level.

Low quality diets containing high levels of starch/carbohydrates, fibers and other fillers will generally produce poop more often, 2 times in 24 hours is not uncommon. Diets with more than 6% starch will often times cause a cat to drink less water and urine can drop to 1-2 times in 24 hours.
