Litter Box Training for 4-Week-Old Kittens
I started weaning the five kittens this week, and yesterday, I stepped in my first puddle. I had bought them a litter box and set it up, put it in the bedroom, and now I don't know where to start. After they ate last night, I put them all in the litter box one by one. Two of them went in the box (not sure if they understood the concept or just had to go), one peed next to the box when he climbed out, and this morning, I found another puddle and a pile of poop outside the litter box.
Any tips on getting them to understand? I've been reading about giving them rewards, etc., but at this point, I'm having a hard time getting them to eat the food I've been putting out.
