Kittens can be trained to use a litter box at around eight weeks.

Here's how to introduce a kitten to use a litter box:

  • When applicable, remove or open the lid.
  • Place your cat inside and gently motion their paws through the litter to familiarize them with the smell and feel.
  • It should take approximately a week for them to use it on their own. 
  • At that point re-introduce the lid.
