my kitten will not use the bathroom

by Tori

my kitten is two to four weeks old and we have had it for four days and it wont use the bathroom is my kitten okay

Answer by Kate

is the kitten still with its mother? i ask this because kittens should remain with their mother until they are fully weaned which is between week 8 and week 12. up until then the kitten will need to be fed with cats milk. Also during this time they would learn about litter training from its mother by watching what she does.

if your kitten is not with its mother then I'm afraid you will have to take over being mum and show your cat what to do, remember this kitten is very young and so may not be fully trained for another month or so.

i have some pages on kitten care which you may find of further help

here is the first page

best wishes Kate
