Will my kitten eventually learn not to step in his poop?

I have to watch my 8 week old kitten when he uses the litter box because there have been a couple of times where he will accidentally step in his own poop when trying to cover it up. Please tell me he will eventually learn!?

  • Yes I use scoopable litter. He hasn't really figured out how to cover it up yet. He will kick litter around everywhere except where he just went! I watch him and end up having to cover it just so he doesn't make a mess.

  • Cats like to be clean, I'm sure it will be sooner then you think, just be patient

  • yes he will learn not to step in it what we did at first is put the litter box inside a cardboard box so that when they stepped out the poop would come off before they got out of the cardboard box and then it didn't get tracked through out the house
