As soon as babies start to venture out of their box I place a shallow tray in front of the exit so they HAVE to step into it , I use shredded kitchen paper to start with, you could also put a small amount of MUM's litter that she has 'peed' on for them to sniff at, it gives them the idea as to what to do.

Around 6 weeks you should start showing them where the box is, and the more often you do this throughout the day, the better, they should pick right up on it. Don't spank them for any boo-boos, as this might cause a fear of the box, and their bones are very brittle.

Start putting the kittens in the litter box when they start to walk. I put a book or some thing for the kittens to get on to get in the litter box.
