I think I'm doing quite a good job with my kittens if I do say so myself. . I brought them home from the pet shop and Amadeus decided he wanted to poop in the corner this then became poo corner as both he and his sister symphony constantly wanted to use that corner. I blocked out said corner so no one could get to it and as soon as I saw either of them toddling off in that direction i'd quickly swoop on them and carry them off to their litter tray where they stayed deep in concentration and I would then reward them. I've had my kittens a week today and I think they are about seven weeks old now. The pet shop owner told me that they were nine weeks old but they are really very small so I think they were six weeks when i got them. Anyway some times they go to their tray independantly and some times they still choose the carpet. So when I am out of the flat I leave them in the kitchen (and the hall way that leads off the kitchen with their tray in it and the bathroom door that leads off the kitchen with the other tray in it) so they have that full area. There arn't many accidents the odd miss near the tray. At night I leave them in their area too as I can't watch them when I'm asleep. I'd much prefer them to be in my bed with me though! I thought I would chance it last night and see if they would be good after all they had been inproving. Four o'clock this morning Amadeus decided to poop in the corner of my room . Really I just want to know am i litter training them properly and is this some thing they will grow out of and does any one have any tips? I have never had to litter train kittens before. Also could this be down to them being litter mates and trying to mark out each other from their territory?
