    Cats / Kittens tend to copy mum and toilet train themselves. However, if you are struggling then you need to confine the space your cat can go into. Provide food, water, bed and litter tray in a small space . If accidents happen soak up pee and place poo in the right place and then show the kitten (I'm assuming) where it is and GENTLY help them to cover it with their paws. Leave it there. Continue this process until the cat learns. Cats are naturally clean creatures and it is unusual for them to poop or pee outside the box unless they have a problem. They may not like the litter, the box may be too exposed, they may be ill or frightened etc.

    My kittens were three weeks old when I put the first tray down. Within a couple of hours they had all investigated it and used it. It was an instinct for them.

    COuld you give a little more explanation of your precise problem?

    Do you mean the actual toilet or litter training?

    I toilet trained 3 of my cats years ago, for the fun of it. I used the LitterKwitter and they all learnt quickly. Not all cats will, some flat out refuse.
