litter training

Hello. I got an 8 week old kitten yesterday and need some help getting it litter trained. my other two cats were the same age when i got them abd using the box already and needed no assistance. the difference is that they were inside and using little boxes before gettin them. this little girl (who is still nameless for now) has been outside since birth. i have made her aware of the little box and scrathed her paw in it but i dont think she gets it. it has only been a day so i realize it may take time just want some advice since i havent litler trained a cat myself.


will post pics soon.

I would confine her to a small space (bathroom?) with food, litter box & toys until she gets the idea. Showing her is good and if you catch her in the act of going somewhere else...immediately move her to the box. Shouldn't take too long...

since it's natural for them to want to go in the sandy texture of the litter you don't have to do too much. Just keep the kitten in a small room with food that is placed as far as possible from the litter and also have scratching posts and toys. Don't try and use the cats paw to scratch since they generally don't like that. Instead just put him in the box or use the scoop (or if the litter is clean your fingers) to dig in it a little so he comes and investigates. She'll catch on soon enough.
