i asked the rspca guy and he said she is trained to use the litter tray. when u say place her in it do you mean with the cover off and then let her climb out and keep doing it ??

You brought her home at 4:30 yesterday? So, that's not so long since going to the bathroom last.

I'd do as suggested. Take the cover off your box and then periodically place her in the litter. And if she just leaves without going it's fine.

Sounds like she's sleeping normally most cats sleep for most of the day.

Well, now that you know she's going. I'd just put the cover back on and see what happens. If she hasn't gone again by tomorrow sometime. Then take the cover off again. Just be sure to not move the box, once you cover it, she may not recognize that it's her litter box since it'll look different.

Most cats don't have a problem with a covered box...but there's always some that do.

right will try that. is it ok to move the tray about 4 foot because at night we have the back part of the house closed of with a conastina door and because there is alot of glass and pots on a cubard and we dont want her knocking them off. and at the day we open and move the tray back not to far but so we dont knock into it cos we can see her if she happens to jump up on the cupbard

Moving the cat box daily is not a good idea. I would try to find a better place for it where it can stay put. Once you have found that place, gradually move the box toward the new spot until it's where you would like it. If you move it suddenly, you can confuse her and she may stop using it. Or she might continue to go where the box was rather than in it.
