We have two cats, Cassie is almost 7 years and Callie is just over 7 months. Cassie is big fellow but very laid back and calm. Callie is still very playful and torments poor Cassie by wanting to play.
We decided to get a another kitten so Callie would have a playmate. We got an adorable 6 week old black and white male kitten Saturday. He is a doll and purrs so loudly!! We named him Shadow.
But he is not litter box trained. He is determined to go potty when ever it hits him. We try to keep a close eye on him and put him in the litter box each time he eats or drinks. Sometimes he will go and sometimes we have to play momma kitty and wipe his bottom with a baby wipe to make him go.
We've only had him a couple days and are already attached to him. I didn't ask the person we got him from if he was litter trained or not. Since they have several cats, we just assumed so.
Any tips or ideas on how to get him to go in the litter box? We got Callie at 6 weeks old and she took to the litter box right off. Taking him back is not an option. Our home is his permanent, indoor home. And he is going to the vet in the AM for his first check up.
