3. Put the tray in a quiet corner
Nobody likes being interrupted on the loo, and our kittens will want to go in peace too. If they’re interrupted, they might get distracted from getting on with their business.
4. Show the new arrival as soon as they come home
They’ll need to know where the litter tray is so they know where to go. Try to keep them within easy reach of it in the early days. Or if the kitten has been born into your family rather than brought into it, try showing them the litter tray at 3 or 4 weeks of age.
5. Check what’s in the litter itself
Use a kitten-friendly litter that doesn’t clump, isn’t scented and doesn’t contain strong chemicals, just in case. Kittens want to learn about the world around them and they’ll use all their senses to do this. That includes putting things in their mouths, so their litter needs to be safe.
