How can I stop my kitten using the litter tray

my kitten

my kitten

my 8 months old girl cat goes outside half the day also at night for a little while and comes back indoors and uses the litter box i have another cat who used the litter box to start then now goes outside all the time i left the litter box out with my other cat then when he was ready he didnt use it anymore but this cat goes outside then comes in and uses the litter box how can i get her to stop using the litter box and go outside this is a picture of her when she was a bit younger

Well some cats need a little more training than others but she will understand eventually.

The best thing you can do is to put her outside straight after her breakfast in the morning and also after her evening meal. Cats will often want to use the bathroom after feeding and so by putting her outside and not letting her back in for a while she will eventually have to start using outside and this will become a habit for her.

You could if you wish also go outside with her and using her paws dig in the earth a little bit. this just gets her used to the feel of digging earth which she will associate with using the bathroom.

P.S great picture.

best wishes Kate

Kits in litter....
by: Kate

We have three cats and one in particular won't go to the toilet outside. This is natural enough, some cats just do not like going to the loo outside. Let your kitten come inside and use the litter box, otherwise he will become distressed and think he is being bad...... Love his picture!
