Kitten Toilet Training Tips

TOILET TRAINING TIPS

For Kittens

Think like a cat – would you like to have a toilet break next to that pesky dog who wants to play all the time or in full view of everyone?

At the start, confining your kitten to one area where you can keep an eye on them is handy.

Place your kitten in the litter tray after they’ve eaten, and at regular intervals during the day, praising them when they use it appropriately.

Later, place litter trays on every level of your home. We recommend one litter tray per cat plus one spare.

For little legs, low sided litter trays are best for easy access and covered trays will provide privacy.

Keep the litter clean – or they may find another clean area in the house to use.

“Accidents” will happen. Remember to be patient.
