Tips for Training Kittens to Use a Litter Box

New kittens are adorable.

But they can also make messes.

Kentucky Humane society Shelter Training Manager Kat Rooks is here to give us the three main factors to getting kittens to use a litter box.

Tips for Litter Box Training:

1: First step - visit vet

-Elimination problems are frequently signs of medical issues

2: Type of box/litter:

-Box should be 1.5 times the length of the cat's body (many boxes are too small!)

-For multi-animal homes, hooded boxes are not a good idea - no escape route

-Minimum of one box per cat

-Soft, silky litter generally preferable to coarse

3: Location:

-Quiet, easily accessible spot

-Separate litter stations for multiple cats

-Look for both privacy and escape routes
