Best answer:

Answer by Gene L
Most kittens and cats easily learn to use their litter box … and they will usually continue to use it unless it gets too dirty.

When a kitten is about 4 weeks of age, s/he will begin to play in, explore, and dig in loose, soft materials, such as dirt or litter. Soon, this investigative digging results in the kitten going potty in these materials.

    Nothing much to it. It’s in a cats instincts to pick up how to use a litter box. Just fix a litter box place the kitten in it and it will go back to it. Before you know it it will be using it like a pro.

    usually, there isn’t much trailing neccessary. Every cat I’ve ever had took to the box on their own….my males even “sprayed” in the litter box when they to that age (to my surprise and RELIEF). Just make sure the kitten knows where to find the box….other than that, you could leave the kitten in a small room (like a bathroom, or a large cardboard box) for various periods of time with the litter box untill they figure it out….other than that…if you do catch it going to the bathroom, immediately place it in the litter box. Most of the time, even kittens will scratch around the area they want to go before they go, so listen for the scratching. Good Luck!

    keep putting him in the litterbox and confine him to a bathroom or a small room with food water and litterbox

    you should stuff its nose in the litter and when youre done it should learn but u might wanna do it a couple of times because it worked on my cat after the second time

    Every cat I’ve ever owned learned very quickly. I watched them carefully until they acted like they needed to go and then I picked them up and placed them in the litter box.

    Usually they will try to find a secluded place, out of the way and begin sniffing and scratching around. They like carpeted corners. When you see this behavior just move them to the litter box. It only took me two times with every cat I’ve ever owned.

    Cats, by their nature, are very bashful about pooping. So if you teach them where they are allowed to go right from the first bowel movement you won’t have any problems. Litter box placement takes some consideration, too. They will go where you tell them, but they will go where they feel most comfortable if you put their litter box someplace stupid (like the living room floor).

    take it to the litter box every hour, or if you think they need to go. grip their paw softly, and make a scratching movement gently guiding her along. she should eventually catch on.

    THEY WILL USUALLY DO IT THEMSELVES. BUT IF THERE IS SOME ACCIDENTS SHOW THE KITTEN HIS MESS THEN BUT HIM IN HIS LITTER BOX. WE JUST BROUGHT A KITTEN HOME LAST WEEK. HE IS VERY GOOD AT USING THE LITTER BOX. WHEN HE IS OUT AND ABOUT THROUGH THE HOUSE YOU MAY HAVE TO SHOW HIM WHERE IT IS UNTIL HE GETS USED TO THE LAY OF THE HOUSE. SOME CATS ARE VERY PICKY ABOUT HOW CLEAN THERE LITTER BOX IS. SOMETIMES THEY WILL MEOW A LOT WHEN THEY NEED TO GO.

    prepare a litter, take a kitten, put it in the sand, take its paw and gently scratch over the sand. Et voila! He/she will always use it without a problem. Just make sure the litter box is nowhere close to his/her eating place and of course, keep it clean!
