Once again it is Pet Fella to the rescue. If you are at your wits end when it comes to litter box training your kitteh we have some tips to make it a lot easier. You’re welcome.
The litter box has a lot to do with whether or not a cat wants to use it. If you ask anybody they would suggest you invest on a litter box with high walls and a removable top. The high walls are good for privacy and the removable top makes it easy to scoop the poop. Since some kitties could become overwhelmed by the confined space, it would be better to keep the top off. When you choose a litter box make sure your cat has room to roam, the bigger the box the happier the cat.
Location, location, location. The best place to keep your cats litter box is somewhere dark and quiet. Cats love their space and privacy, we bet that if they could segregate people to one room they would. It is very unlikely for a cat to use the litter box if they are being observed, I mean imagine having to do your necessities in front of your entire family, how embarrassing. Also, cats are creatures of habit, make sure that where you place the litter box is where it will remain.
Praise and Reward
This is the easy one. We all love making our pets happy, knowing what they like is an advantage in positive reinforcement. Giving them an encouraging pat in the head, rubbing their belly and giving them treats, we live for this stuff and so do they. If you show them all of the good things that come from using the litter box, they won’t disappoint you. All creatures love to hear praise and they really like compensation, cats are not the exception.
- Isolate your cat to one room while it is being trained.
- Remember to remove or clean (thoroughly) any and all places kitty may have tarnished.
- Always keep the litter box clean.
- For your peace of mind, place a mat below the litter box, it will give the litter a place to fall, making it easier to clean up.
- Buy multiple litter boxes for multiple cats.
- Touch litter with your hand make your cat aware that it is ok to use.
- It is NEVER okay to use brute force against an animal, ALWAYS remember that.
Before adopting a cat, make sure you are patient enough to wait for them to learn to use the litter box. With some cats it does take time and it could become frustrating. Cats are not toys, they should not be returned just because they aren’t absolutely perfect. Remember that pets live, breath, express joy and sadness, they are a very big responsibility. We hope this blog post proves to be helpful.
