How to train your new cat / kitten
Kitten is full of energy, mischief, and curiosity. Spending some
time to train your new kitten will be much easier than trying to
undo bad habits in an older cat. But you may be wondering what the
best way to train your kitten is. Training your kitten requires
a lot of time, supervision, and effort, but it is possible.
1. Kittens need exercise. If this is not done in the form of toys
for the animal to play with, it will become restless and could do
damage to your home.
2. Since kittens are not yet toilet trained, it is best to start
by teaching it what to do with a litter box. The litter box should
be big enough for the pet to enter and move around in. By adding
newspaper and perhaps carpet, the animal will soon learn where to
release waste when it is time.
3. The claws of kittens are not that sharp yet compared to older
cats. So that these creatures will not damage the furniture in the
future, it is best to get a scratching pad and teaching it that
this is the proper place to scratch.
Praising the kitten for doing a good job and feeding it as a reward
will help in teaching the kitten how to behave inside the house.
The owner should not shout or hit the kitten since this will make
the animal fear the person and no amount of effort in teaching it
will work after that experience.
Kittens are lovable animals and by spending some time daily with
them and with a little patience, this will all pay off as one can
finally see that the animal has been finally house trained.
