A plan to prevent potty problems
One of the first things that new pet parents usually want their pup or kitten to learn is how to use their toilet area properly – accidents sure aren’t fun to clean up! For dogs, begin with a consistent daily routine of wake, potty, eat, potty, play, potty, sleep (and repeat), bringing your pooch to their assigned potty area every hour or two and praising them lavishly when they’re successful. The same routine works for kittens, too! Because young kittens may not be able to make it to a box far away, however, have at least two litter boxes available on different levels, and make sure to use a natural, non-clumping litter; fragranced litters are often off-putting for our feline friends, and the clumping variety isn’t safe for young kittens to use.
