Mother cats often train their kittens to use a litter box, so a new cat may already be housebroken. If not, don’t worry—cats are quick studies.

Step 1: Choose litter box
Make sure you choose a litter box that’s right for your cat. Kittens and older cats prefer boxes with lower sides. Larger cats will need—you guessed it—larger boxes.

Step 2: Set up litter box
Set up the litter box in an area separate from where your cat eats and sleeps.

Step 3: Place litter box
Try to keep the litter box in an easily accessible but semi-hidden place so the cat has privacy.

Step 4: After feeding, place cat
After each feeding, place the cat in the litter box.

Step 5: Scratch cat’s paws
Gently scratch the cat’s front paws in the litter to show that this is his own personal bathroom.

Step 6: Praise cat
Once the cat has used the litter box, praise and play with him to reinforce the behavior.

Step 7: Clean litter box
Make sure the litter box is clean. You should remove solid waste every day and clean the entire litter box with detergent and water once a week—or more, if it smells of urine. And always wash your hands after handling used litter.

If your cat hasn’t caught on after several days, try a different kind of litter. He may not like the texture or scent of the one you chose.

Step 8: Move littler box
Is Kitty still being stubborn? Try moving the litter box to a more secluded spot.

Step 9: Call vet
If he continues to eliminate outside the litter box—or if she stops using the box after having been successfully litter-trained—call your vet. It may be a sign of illness.

Did You Know?
Most cats will refuse to use a litter box if it’s not clean enough for them.

    My first cat was very bad with the litter box, he didn't like it so we had to work extra hard.

    The second one, we just got a month ago was awesome. We put him in it 3 times and he immediately got the idea and used it. He pooped on my mothers bed once and my bed once. That was only because we had a dog over that we were dog sitting and she slept right. By his litter box. He was afraid and pooped in our beds.
