post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
my kitten is growing so quick he only peed yesterday and today after i feed him i tried to get him to go to the bathroom and he wouldnt go for me...so i put him in his bed and he went to sleep on a full belly. then 4 hrs later i woke him up for feeding and to play, and i discovered he had pooped in his box, i was excited he went on his own but is this a good thing??? does this mean i should get a litter box and start to show him how to go to the litter box, he will be exactly 4 weeks old on saturday, s it to early? i was just so proud of my little man =) he pottyed by himself yay

Good news. Yes, now would be a good time to introduce a little litter box with wheat or newspaper based kitty litter in it. You could also use plain non-clumping litter. This link on Kitten Rescue tells you how to introduce the litter box: http://www.kitten-rescue.com/four_to_five_weeks.html

For small kittens, I start them out with a aluminum cake pan - its more shallow then the normal small litter pan.

yes about a cup or two of litter. And keep the pan on a towel or tile floor for easier clean up. As they get bigger, you can put the normal pan with litter along side the smaller pan. When you switch, put the "used" litter in the new pan so he knows where to go.
