    ok last week i rehomed a 4 n half month old kitten, she's brilliaant, plays with my kids and stuff, but the last 2 day's she has started using my fire place as a litter tray :nono: . My fire's coal/wood and get's very dusty and is almost impossible to keep dust free for long without hooverin every time i poke the fire. until she and my other cat Oscar get on and can be unsupervised in the house together she has a tray in the living room and his is in my spare room :) you all know oscar ate rat poison so he's had to be kinda quarentined to one room the last fortnight so i could check his tray and eating habit's so once he's all ok and they kinda get on lol im planning on taking one tray away if they'll use a tray together i'll put it in the cupboard in the hall for them. any tip's on how to get her to stop using my fire place s a litter tray LOL. Oscar's never done this so i have no idea what the appeal is to piper LOL :confused: .com

    Lol putting it right next to would be my next idea :tongue_smilie:

    Maybe she likes the soft sooty ashes - could always try sweeping it out and into the tray if she starts up again.

    Glad she's being a good girl for now though :001_smile:
