How to Litter Box Train a Kitten in 5 Steps
Step 1. Be Prepared
Most of the time, the worst chaos involved with litter box training, comes when we are not sure what to expect. Thankfully, there is not a lot of complication or complexity involved with the process of training your kitten to successful use their litter box.
You simply need to be prepared by having the right tools and the right attitude.
Step 2. Get The Right Gear
In order to effectively train you kitty to use their new potty, with few challenges, you'll want to make sure you obtain a shallow litter pan, some organic kitty litter, plenty of news paper, garbage bags and a litter scooper. If your young kitten happens to have a more headstrong personality, you might also consider investing in some treats that he or she really likes, to help you convince them that the littler box is a great place to go.
Step 3. Regular Introductions
In the beginning, the most difficult part about litter box training, is in getting your kitten to feel comfortable with being in the litter box with the litter and understanding that you want them to use the litter as a place to relieve themselves.
To overcome this challenge, I find that it is best to take your kitten and place them in the litter box regularly, even though it might not seem like they have to go. When they are in there, try and be as happy and positive as you can, as this will help your kitty understand that you want them to use the litter box.
Step 4. Remain Persistent and Patient

Litter training doesn't have to be hard!
As your training sessions go on, you should definitely see your kitten becoming more comfortable with the litter box. Though there will still be times when your little fur ball forgets that the litter box is just down the hall, or when they try to hold it in to long, and you will want to remain vigilant for those opportunities to remind them of where the bathroom is.
Stay patient and persistent and your training will be smooth and less messy.
Step 5. Keep It Clean
The last thing you want to do, is deter your kitten (or any other cats in the house) from using the litter box, and the best way to do that, is to make sure you keep the litter box as clean as you can. Cat has a particular fondness for clean litterbox's, and an extreme dislike of even a few lumps left in there, so the cleaner you can keep the box, the more often your kitten will use it.
