Are you making these 6 common mistakes when potty training your cat?

Most cat owners make these mistakes and wonder why they fail at potty training their cat...

Potty training your pets is obviously not an easy task. Especially for those who adopt their cat from the street.

You can save yourself a lot of time and trouble by adopting a well-trained cat from animals shelter but for those who have a good enough heart to adopt a non-trained cats, a little knowledge about potting training a cat will come in handy.

However, no matter how many tips and guide you read about potting training, there are always chances that your potting training is going to fail. Especially, if you’re making these 6 most common mistake that peoples do when potting training their cat.

#1 mistake: Litter box is too small or too high
Around the web we see that cats love boxes, they’ll fit in the box even if the box is obviously too small. But when it come to litter box, thing is a little bit different. Your cat needs a box that is big enough for them to turn around.


#2 mistake: Confusing your cat with too many scents
Cats are very sensitive about scent and odor. A lot of cat owner confuse their cat by using scented litter and litter box. What they don’t realize is the scented litter and litter box that they’re using are only good for them but confusing to their cat.

Using cleanser that contains ammonia can also confuse your cat. This is because this kind of cleanser has a similar scent to cat urine and may cause your cat to think that the newly cleaned area is his/her litter spot.

#3 mistake: Their cat roams too freely in the house

Letting your cat to play around your house is great, but not if he/she is not potty trained yet. If you just adopt your cat, it is better to confine your cat in a special area (with food, water, toys and litter box) for a while so that your cat can didn’t go urinating all around your house.

#4 mistake: wrong location
The location of the litter box also plays a major role in potty training. Cat like to have a little privacy. So place the litter box in less crowded, low traffic area of your house.

And do not change the location too often or else it will get your cat confuse.

#5 mistake: The litter box is too dirty
It is true that you need to leave a little scent in that litter box so your cat will come back to the exact same spot the next time he litter. But a heavily soiled litter box not only feels uncomfortable to your cat but it can also cause health issue.


#6 mistake: Punishing

Punishing or raising voice to your cat or kitten will only cause tension. Unlike human, cat didn’t understand your language.

So the best way to tell your cat the correct way to litter is by paying attention to him and put him into the litter box each time you think your cat need to litter.

Don’t forget to praise your cat when he do it right.
