Hi everyone!

Let's talk about litter training kittens.

Cats and kittens are naturally inclined to cover their waste,

so they instinctively understand the box most of the time.

But! There are some tips and tricks that'll help ensure that your litter training experience goes smoothly.

Excuse me...!

You're so excited to use the litter box! You gotta wait until there's litter in it...

To litter train kittens, you're obviously going to need a litter box and... litter!

But it's important to know what you need to get.

For your box, a small cheap shallow box is where you want to start with these little guys.

Nothing covered, nothing too tall,

nothing with a door, or steps, or anything like that.

In fact, when they're first learning I just use these cardboard trays as their first training boxes.

The cardboard trays that hold canned food are *perfect* for litter training kittens.

I love using these, because they're so shallow the kitten can just walk right into it.

And once they get really gross, you can just toss them in the trash.

This means a clean box for the kittens, and less hassle for you.

If you're working with kittens under 8 weeks old, I recommend using a kitten safe litter,

meaning something that is fragrance free and non-clumping.

Remember that kittens navigate the world just like human babies - with their mouths.

Highly fragrant litters can be bad for tiny kittens if ingested,
