I've Just adopted a cat.. and he wont use his litter....yet

I know that he will quickly learn that his litter is where he wll go to do his "thing", But ive had him for 7 hours and the box hasnt been used.

The box is clean and in a nice, clean private area.

Should I be worried?

No....a lot of times cats won't eat (or they just nibble a little) or use the litter box for the first day. Give him some time, he'll use it.

Oh...and...welcome to Cat Forum! We'd love to see some pics of him!

Thank you.. I will just keep watching for him and hope that he finds his way!


This is day #1 for my little Oliver, in his new home.

You may also want to keep the litter pan where he can find it right now, near where he spends most of his time. As he gets more comfortable in your home you can slowly move it to where you want it to be.

Congrats on the new addition!

Have you shown him where the litterbox is? A couple trips there wouldn't hurt.
