  8. Creatively Living on July 8, 2020 at 6:58 pm

    I’ve never had a cat but I’m thinking about getting one. How do they know what the litter box is used for?

  9. Cloveice Colemen on July 8, 2020 at 7:00 pm

    Thank you.

  10. ReaganPlayzGames on July 8, 2020 at 7:02 pm

    He poops outside lol

  11. Valerie Johnson on July 8, 2020 at 7:03 pm

    Pooping and peeing is naturally what a cat does. I never did any training for it other than showing the cat where it was.

  12. Mr. Nobody on July 8, 2020 at 7:04 pm

    I got my 1 year old yesterday. So far he’s been too nervous to use the litter box and he’s thrown up twice. This morning he’s starting to get a little comfortable and will let me pet him. I sat him in the box a few times, I hope he figures it out soon!

  13. NotroHolix on July 8, 2020 at 7:06 pm

    my cat just learned how to use the litter box it took 5 min

  14. Suso on July 8, 2020 at 7:09 pm

    If I put my cat in the litter box she runs away T T, I’m having trouble because I already tried three types of litter so that doesn’t seem to be the problem

  15. Ramlah Abu Hassan on July 8, 2020 at 7:10 pm

  16. CHLOE CRONIN on July 8, 2020 at 7:10 pm

    Hmmmmmm…. They must have had several typos on the title, I don’t see any litter box teaching. I only see some facts………

  17. jason potts on July 8, 2020 at 7:11 pm

  18. Aurexbella on July 8, 2020 at 7:11 pm

  21. KSound Kaiju on July 8, 2020 at 7:13 pm

    that’s a myth

    multiple cats can use one litter box you just need a big litter box

  25. kEnNy mCcormiCk on July 8, 2020 at 7:16 pm

    Maybe my cat just hates me- i put the literbox in the closet she used it once and now she just poops around it…

  26. The Benwoir on July 8, 2020 at 7:19 pm

    That didn’t help, I already have done all that and my cat still goes beside the litter box. Any suggestions?

  27. Katherine Howard on July 8, 2020 at 7:20 pm

    What if you only have 1 litter box

  28. Oreo Playz on July 8, 2020 at 7:20 pm

    Thank you for this video ! It’s really helpful! I can’t wait to try it out soon……..
    That’s what my good friend said. 👭

  29. G & V Goertz on July 8, 2020 at 7:22 pm

    When my cat does his business outside, he goes in the middle of the yard – he needs no privacy!

    Not very helpful

  31. Nikos Tzoumas on July 8, 2020 at 7:23 pm

    i have 3 kittens for a while now and ever since they were little the went to their litter box but lately one of them is doing her buisenes around the house in random places and i dont know why

  32. Dan Yo on July 8, 2020 at 7:23 pm

    how i wish i have a persian cat 🙁

  33. Ranae Dycus on July 8, 2020 at 7:24 pm

    So my 16yo cat was fine, until we got a kitten. The new kitten has his own litter box upstairs, but will still go and use the older cats litter as well. Now the older cat will not go in his litter box, but not sure how to stop kitten from going in his box. HELP!!!

  34. llbenjonjoll on July 8, 2020 at 7:24 pm

    My cat is 2 years old and she’s never consistently used her litter box, most of the time she pees just right to it, but not in it

  35. Kim Dalessandro on July 8, 2020 at 7:25 pm

    This is about what to buy (from Petco of course) – not how to actually litter train a kitten. 😑

  36. Hero Hour on July 8, 2020 at 7:29 pm

    How often do u change the sand? Like once a month?

  37. J Mo on July 8, 2020 at 7:29 pm

    Can someone tell me something I don’t know. I have two litter boxes one cat. Unscented litter, ones closed ones open and 30 percent bigger. She’ll pee in the closed one but doesn’t use the open litter box at all. It’s nowhere near her food. I occasionally put her food bowl near where she poops as a way of saying no not hear this area is food worthy. I’m about to try hiding the closed litter box so she has to use the open one. It’s really not to bad to pick up poop but I really feel like she should know this instinctively.

  38. britney bemer on July 8, 2020 at 7:30 pm

    Privacy? I can hear Jackson galaxy laughing

  39. israr khan on July 8, 2020 at 7:30 pm

    Always make sure you have one extra box than you have cats. If you have 3 cats, have 4 litter boxes!

    Our cats all have decent sized mats under their boxes so they have somewhere to wipe their feet when they are finished tackling their business inside. We also use covered litter boxes (like little caves) but ensure the door is removed each time we buy a new one. Our cats love their privacy, but they also enjoy breathing 😉

  40. Richard Najera on July 8, 2020 at 7:31 pm

    How do I stop here from stop tracking poop out of her little box 😐

  41. Corner of the Barn on July 8, 2020 at 7:32 pm

    i just brought in my almost 3 year old cat, shes been outside her whole life, she isnt feral, but i wanna give her the best life possible hense being inside…. i was able to train a young kitten to use the box but i havent yet figured out how to train the nearly 3 yr old. shes been inside for about 2 days and hasnt gone to the bathroom anywhere?! ive been giving her pets and treats in her own box so she realizes its a good safe place… but she keeps waiting at the door like telling me she wants to go potty outside :/ but she doesnt like it out there. before i brought her in she was always trying to sneak into the house 🤷‍♀️ so idk… ANY TIPS CUZ THIS VIDEO IS HELPLESS!

  42. Karate TV on July 8, 2020 at 7:32 pm

    what type of cat in the video?

  43. The One And Only GamingBoy on July 8, 2020 at 7:33 pm

    Why am I watching this? I don’t even have a cat

    Probably Because It Was Recommended

  44. bensoflyyy on July 8, 2020 at 7:34 pm

    I have a rescue kitten and she’s approximately 2 weeks old now. I wanna learn how to litter train her because if she wont learn it’s gonna be a pain in the ass because i cant stand cat’s poop and pee smell, dogs’ are much more tolerable in my opinion.

  45. Michelle Chaitman on July 8, 2020 at 7:34 pm

    pee pee poo fart

  46. martin on July 8, 2020 at 7:36 pm

    What if I live in a 1 room micro-apartment in the city centre, how do I separate my cat’s spaces?

  47. Stratoleft on July 8, 2020 at 7:37 pm

    You don’t "train" a cat to do anything of the sort whatsoever, jerkwads. It’s automatic.

  48. Jesse King on July 8, 2020 at 7:38 pm

    Don’t just say her there are male cats as well

  49. Orange Juice on July 8, 2020 at 7:39 pm

    I want a cat 🐱

  50. Taasin Ahmed on July 8, 2020 at 7:39 pm
