How to Litter Train A Kitten

Loving your kitten? Easy. Litter training your kitten—well, that’s why Tidy is here! Tidy Cats has a few tips to help get your kitten introduced to her box as she gets acquainted with her new home and routine. Got the basics down and just need the litter that’s right for your cat? Check out what Tidy has to offer.

Being prepared with the right supplies is important. Check out the New Cat Owner Litter Guide for tips on picking the right box. For now, keep in mind that your kitten is tiny and needs a box with low sides so she can get in and out by herself.

Some kittens will try to eat clumping litter. Not only is this an unappetizing choice for a snack, it can clump up in her tummy and cause some serious issues. So choose Tidy's Non-Clumping blend until she’s 4-6 months old.

Think about helping your kitten get used to her new home by keeping her in one room for a couple days. Once you’re sure she’s using the box (and it should be pretty easy to tell), you can let her explore more of the house. Most importantly, enjoy this time—Tidy knows they grow up fast.
