Once you get a new cat at home, you know what comes next? It is house training. In this post, I am going to share some tips on how to house train your new cat.
With any new cat, the first thing you want to accomplish is house training rules. To prevent them from going to the bathroom inside the home, the most important thing is managing your cat’s environment. This means 100% supervision by an adult while the cat is in free in the house. That is possible that we provide them a safe place.
There are some cat supplies that make it happen, like a cat proof room or a crate. Typically a crate is a good option because a cat will not relieve itself where it sleeps. The key to crate training success is to make sure the crate is at appropriate size for your cat.
There are some telltale signs that your cat will exhibit that will let you know that they need to use the bathroom. Sniffing the ground, spinning and squatting are few of the common signs. If you see one of these common signs, you need to get your cat as quickly as possible to the target area for elimination.
That means a pet cat toilet if you house training inside or a designated spot outdoors. Once your cat has relieved itself, you can use verbal praise such as good boy and a treat to reward and reinforce this positive behavior. Also avoid giving your cat water 2 to 2.5 hours before bedtime. So you can make sure your cat is comfortable while sleeping.
The key to house training is consistency because cats need routine. Maintain a consistent schedule and the same doorway when going outside. Take them to the same place every time you go outside and designate a potty zone. And remember to give praise when your cat goes.
