Welcome to the Litter League
Congratulations on your new fluffy bundle of joy! Now, let's talk business – litter business, that is. Litter training is essential for a harmonious home. Here's how to make it as smooth as purring.
1. Choose the Right Litter Box: Size Matters
Your kitten is small, but their litter box shouldn't be. Get a box they can grow into, and make sure it's easily accessible.
2. Location, Location, Location
Place the litter box in a quiet, low-traffic area. Kittens value their privacy too! Avoid moving it around to prevent confusion.
3. The Right Type of Litter: Kitten-Friendly
Some litters are not suitable for kittens, especially clumping varieties which can be harmful if ingested. Opt for a non-clumping, dust-free litter to start.
4. Positive Reinforcement: Praise Goes a Long Way
Every time your kitten uses the litter box, offer praise and maybe a treat. Positive reinforcement can work wonders.
5. Patience is Key: Accidents Happen
Remember, accidents are part of the learning process. Never scold your kitten. Patience and consistent training will lead to success.
