Petmania Cat House Training Litterbox Toilet
Real world house-training requires a strategy based on three components:
Consistency: a consistent walking schedule catered to the dog's developmental stage and individual preferences
Kittens naturally like to relieve themselves in dirt or sand. If you introduce them to a litter box, they'll gladly go there instead of on your carpet. If you start as soon as you bring your kitten home, he or she will be using the box regularly in no time. It is important to find the right box for your kitten and encourage her to use it, but you won’t need to "litter train" a cat in the same way you would house-train a dog. You shouldn’t need to teach your cat what to do with a litter box; instinct will generally take over. You do need to provide an acceptable, accessible litter box.
Until your cat is reliably house trained, she should not have free run of your home. If your cat continually makes mistakes, the behavior can simply become a habit. Punishing a cat after the fact teaches her to be afraid of you. Scolding and then taking the cat to her litter box after she has already eliminated teaches her to associate the litter box with punishment. Basically, punishment doesn't work with cats: prevention and praise for getting it right are the keys to training.
When you leave the house for any length of time, your cat should be confined to a single room, preferably one with non-porous floors, such as a kitchen, bathroom, utility room, basement or garage. Provide your cat with a bowl of water and a warm place to sleep at one end of the room and a freshly cleaned litter box at the other end. Until the house soiling has been cured, your cat should have a regular feeding schedule so she will develop a corresponding elimination schedule.House training a cat can be a difficult task.
The process may take about a week for a kitten but longer for an older cat that has never lived inside a house. With the help of a few simple , you can house train your cat easily. In order to house , it is important to keep in mind that praise and rewards work better than reprimand and punishment.
Cats don’t respond well to punishment and it is therefore necessary to be patient if you want to house train a cat. One of the most important aspects of house training a cat is teaching him/her how to use a litter box. This is a common problem that most cat owners experience.
You can train your cat to use a litter box with the help of a few simple tips. Firstly, ensure that you choose an ideal spot for your cat’s litter box before training him to use it. This is important because, the litter box needs to be cleaned frequently and is bound to give off a bad odor. A litter box may thus be an unwelcome addition to the living/dining area or even the bedroom. In addition, cats are averse to sleeping or eating in the same room that they eliminate in. It is therefore advisable to place your cat’s litter box in a separate, well-ventilated room where your cat should be trained to go and where it is easy for you to clean the mess. Once you have chosen an ideal place in your home for your cat’s litter box, place several newspapers under it to avoid ruining your floor and to make cleaning easier. Now fill the litter box with clean cat litter of your choice. You can choose from natural pine litter, aromatic litter, multi-cat blend, clumping litter or regular cat box clay filler. Watch your kitten closely for signs that he/she needs to defecate or urinate. Generally, cats tend to start sniffing or scratching the floor when they need to eliminate. When you observe such signs you must physically pick up your cat and take him/her to the litter box.
