Hello, I was wondering if anyone had any advice on teaching a kitten to not go to the toilet at night. I have a 10 week old female kitten, my first cat, and I’ve only had her for a week. She uses the hooded litter box whenever she needs to, even at night, but my boyfriend complains that it smells too much. (Changed litters, use spray and litter powder - since changing the brand of litter the odour is better but still bad overnight where it’s been left to sit when we’ve been sleeping). The smell of pee isn’t noticeable, but the poo is the worst. We took the tray out of the room the other night, and she peed our bed. She used the tray just before we removed it and went to sleep. She’s scared of the house dog, (a friendly dog, loves cats but they still need more introducing) and we have other tenants so she can’t roam around at night and use the litter box if it’s in the bathroom. Is there any way I can remove the litter tray at night without her doing her business around the bedroom? Or will it just be a case of being consistent, taking the box away and cleaning up any mess she makes until she doesn’t do it anymore? My boyfriend wants to lock her away at night in the kitchen in one of those fabric carrier/sleep things (it’s about a metre long) with a small box inside so she can go to the toilet if she needs to but I’m not happy with that at all - she’s still full of energy and it’s not nice being so small with a sensitive nose being in such a small space with a dirty tray all night. I’m not sure the best way to toilet train her at night, and I’m not sure how well kittens accept rewards for good behaviour. I want her to be comfortable and happy, and for both me and my partner to be too but I don’t know the best way to go about it. I’ve tried telling my boyfriend she’s a baby, and if she needs the toilet then she needs to go but he’s still adamant she can learn to hold it. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thank you! Thank you for all comments, I’ll make sure she keeps the tray throughout the night!
