  • Samurai gave good advice. The other thing is to try a different litter, particularly if the kitten was outside initially or not litter trained at all (odd ~ the few litters I've had were litter trained by 4-5 weeks old ... before they were weaned). If they can dig and it isn't so perfumed it gives them a headache most cats will use litter. There are cats that are picky as far as how litter 'feels' on their feet. Get small bags/boxes until you find one the kitten likes (and don't use 'clumping' litter until the kitten is at least 6 months unless it is naturally clumping with no bentonite!!). I use Arm and Hammer Essentials exclusively. It is scented, but it's a naturally clumping product with no dust, no bentonite, and completely biodegradable, made from corn cobs.

  • How long have u had the kitten? It is probably nervous. Put the litter box where the kitten goes.

  • kittens naturally want to cover their pee & poo with something. So, keep on putting her in the kitty litter & manually take her hand & MAKE her scratch the litter. Once she realizes that she can do this, she might prefer to use the litter. Cats are creature's of habit though, maybe put the litter box in the corner she likes to pee in. And if you see her sniffing to use the bathroom, just throw her in the kittly litter & make her paws scratch the litter so she realizes she has something she can bury her poo & pee in.

  • Put the litter box in the corner of its choice for a few months then slowly move the box to the corner of your choice over a few month of time. It will follow the smell. If their food bowl or sleeping site is to close to the poop box it wont go potty there. They dont like pottying in the own living space, but they dont mind pottying in yours...LOL!

  • Also, if it is a small kitten, make sure the litter box is not too high for him/her to get into. If it is a really young kitten, litter in an aluminum pie plate may work better than a large litter box.
