Five Steps to Solving Litter Box Problems:
1. Replace Your Current Litter With Kitten Attract™
Unfortunately, cats don’t buy their own litter. If they could, they would buy a litter that has an outdoors-natural scent, like your freshly turned garden. Kitten Attract™ is the answer. It has a unique herbal scent that attracts their curiosity and the right texture for their paws. Although you may not be aware of Kitten Attract’s scent, your kitten will.
2. Freshen Up
You don’t like a dirty bathroom, and neither does your kitten. Their sense of smell is 1000 times better than yours, so clean the litter box and refill with Kitten Attract™. Remove feces and urine clumps daily. If your cat does not respond to a clean litter box, you may need to replace it. Some old boxes are scratched and permeated with a scent your kitten may find offensive. Replace it and set up a second litter box in a different area. Having one more litter box than you have kittens is a good idea.
3. Destroy the Evidence!
Once a kitten has marked an area with urine or feces, problem kittens naturally regard it as an appropriate area for relieving themselves.
Do all that you can to eliminate any trace of odor from the “trouble spot.” Clean it thoroughly with a liquid enzymatic odor cleaner. Avoid ammonia-based cleaners, which actually contribute to the problem because of their urine-like scent. Try to keep your cat away from the trouble spot by covering the area with a plastic carpet runner, spike side up, or tin foil (cats dislike the feel of foil). A lemon scented air freshener will also help in both repelling the cat and neutralizing the odor.
If your kitten still can’t resist the area, try placing its food there; kittens are unlikely to urinate or defecate where they eat. Try using your kitten’s own fragrance to your advantage: rub a cloth between your kitten’s eye and ear to pick up its scent, then rub the cloth over the problem area. Recognizing its own scent on the carpet, floor, or furniture, a kitten may be reluctant to soil the area again. Do this two to three times a day to be most effective.
4. Consider a Litter Box Makeover
Hooded litter boxes are for owners, not kittens. Try removing the hood and rethink the location of the boxes. They should be in quiet, out-of-the-way places with convenient access for your kittens, but no access for the family dog (some dogs will stay around a litter box and make the kitten nervous).Keep the boxes away from bright lights, loud noises, and vibrations from washing machines or furnaces. Set up one more box than you have kittens in your household to cut down on traffic and mess. If your house has several floors, have a box on each level for your kitten’s convenience. Finally, do not put a litter box near the kitten’s food dishes – this is no more appealing for a kitty than it would be for you!
5. Treat Your Kitten to Some R&R
Stress is a leading cause of litter box problems. Fortunately, there is a lot you can do to ease your kitten’s worried mind. Territorial by nature, kittens need to feel secure in their environment in order to relax. In multiple kitten households, make sure each cat has a separate “zone” with its own food, water, litter box, and a safe, elevated perch for relaxing. Thermal Kitty heated beds and carpeted Kitten Condos make excellent retreats for your stressed feline. Play with your kitten for at least 15 minutes every day, making sure he has plenty of toys to stalk and chase.
