Take your kitten to its litter box as soon you bring it home. Sometimes that first visit is all is necessary. But until you're sure that the kitten understands, take it there after every feeding. Sometimes cats will not use a litter box if something about this brand of litter is never to their liking. Once in a while they will all the container if its location is not private enough. Make an effort to solve these problems if the kitten does not use the kitty litter box right away.
The first rung on the ladder toward using a good pet kitten is choosing a wholesome kitten. Search for a litter of kittens about fourteen days before they are prepared to leave their mom. They'll be six weeks old. Ask permission to get the kittens and be very mild when to do so. Make sure that a kitten has clear, smart eye and a sparkly, full overcoat. Check the skin under the fur for any problems such as sores, rashes or bald spots. You intend to choose a kitten that has healthy skin area.
