|Okay, the poop you described is normal, and they do have trouble getting to the litter box in time, especially feeling the urge, just like little kids. You will need to carry them to the box in the middle of a nap. Their little short legs can't get them there quickly yet, and when they relax into deep sleep, about 15 - 20 min in, they sometimes relax muscles they need to hold it in. This will come with age.
They don't need to "learn" to drink. They have a special tongue mechanism that is instinctual. They just have to be thirsty, which they are learning to notice around this age.
Bless you mightily for taking in these babies!!! Luv, Tink
