Find freedom from constantly changing the box with tips to get kitty to do her business outside.

Step 1: Move the litter box
Move the litter box close to the door the cat will use to go outside. Show the cat the new location of their litter box. Keep the box there for a few weeks until they are familiar with the location.

Step 2: Add dirt and leaves
Add some dirt and leaves to the box to introduce the elements of the outdoors to your cat’s bathroom experience.

Step 3: Move the box outside
Move the box just outside the door. Gently pick your kitty up and place them in the box, if they are hesitant to use it. Add more dirt and leaves to the box to blend in with the outdoor elements.

Consider adding a pet door to their exit door for easier access.

Step 4: Gradually move the box
Gradually move the box farther from the door over several days once they’re using the box outside regularly. This will get your cat used to being further away from the house.

Step 5: Remove the box
Remove the box and sprinkle some litter on the ground in the place you want your cat to relieve itself. Once your cat is used to going outside, you may place a box indoors for those times when your cat doesn’t have outdoor access. Now revel in the joy of not having the clean the litter box anymore!

Did You Know?
The first cat litter, called Kitty Litter, was invented in 1947. Before that time, people used sand or ashes in litter boxes.

    If you’re so lazy you can’t clean a litter box every few days, you don’t need to have a cat! This video is showing the cat how to unlearn the correct habit!

    I just threw my cat outside and didn't let it back in for 2 weeks, she learned pretty quick that outside was her bathroom.

    I have a reverse situation. An outdoor cat has moved in and is spending some time indoors and some outside. It's a female and she never peed or pooed indoors neither somewhere too close for comfort outdoors. Once she wants to go outside she lets me know. I guess I'm just lucky with a good cat. Could it be that female cats are more understanding? They also do not have the spray problem, but yes, gets pregnant every year.

    could you put them in a fenced off area, or or least them outside to go?

    my boy passed away about a month ago. i had him as long as i can remember and he never even had a litter box. he would even stay the night outside in summer cause he loved to sleep on the swings. I'm considering getting a kitten again and my parents insisted that there wouldn't be any litterboxes in the housw and i have no idea how it's gonna go…

    Step 6: clean up the cat poop from your yard because the soil will begin to smell. And watch your neighbors complain about the smell emanating from your yard. Sometimes cats don't bury their poop to mark their territory.

    Thank you so much for your advice. I have a cat (one of two sisters that had been raised by a breeder who kept them in a cage until she sold them) who had only used a litter tray. The other sister pretty much taught herself to go outside immediately, but this one not only used the litter box, but also anyone's bed who was unlucky enough to forget to close their bedroom door and anyone's laundry that they had dropped on the floor – I live with 2 very lazy boys. We had decided to rehouse her, but I used your litter box idea about putting the box outside with leaves on it and not only did she stop going inside but she only used the leafy litter box once.   I watched her see her sister go outside and she just copied her, even though the ground was covered with hail making for very cold, wet paws.Last night she slept on my bed with her sister and no messes so she's been well praised and is definitely staying. She's not the brightest pussycat on the block but she's a keeper.

    wow. thanks for the vid. I recently inherited 2 feral 2 week old kittens whose momma was killed on the road a few days ago. My 2 American bulldogs brought them to me one evening, very gently. I have no need for cats but I have been blessed with them so I will take care of them. My dogs love them.

    this is a horrible suggestion, it gives cats the idea to not just go in their owner's yard, but yards of their neighbors who freakin' hate it!
