    Default Smart Kitten- Confused Mama

    I just have a quick question for all the experts out there. I have a very smart Domestic Shorthair named Thumbs. He is 16 weeks old and has already adjusted to quite well to many things: loud bar noises, street traffic, trains, vet visits, new forms of play and games, and his crazy mama's schedule (I think that is enough bragging for now). I got the LK in the mail yesterday and set it on the bathroom floor,replacing the LB immediately. When Thumbs hears me scooping the box he likes to investigate so he came in and saw what I was doing and he plopped his little behind down and used the red disc like nothing had changed. He has peed and pooed in it at least 6 times each since yesterday which is about average and made no mistakes around the house except I think he stepped in it at one point last night because there was a small poopy paw print on the floor. All of his poop has been dead center on the red ring and the pee is on the outer ring. Do you think it would be wise to start him on the amber stage yet? or do I give it a little more time on red?

    Thanks in advanced,

    Most cats start good on red stage and when they go on to the amber stage they start having accidents. Most cats need the changes to be slow, it's good that she is adaptable - but she may encounter some problems with this, giving her time and avoiding accidents is the fastest way to train - training in itself might take a few months, but one accident can set you back for months also...If you haven't changed to flushable litter yet, that should be your next step. Here is a thread with links you should read: http://www.litterkwitter.com/forums/...ead.php?t=3095

    Good luck
