Okay I know little Ophelia is still young so I'm not condemning her. She is about oh maybe a month in half now. I started litter training her the minute I got her. I know she's still a baby so I always keep an eye on her to see if she needs to go. I also encourage her to go as soon as she wakes up and after oh every 4 hours or so. I've even seen her go to litter box even without me coaxing her. I always keep the litter box clean and I have a separate box for Opi cause I know you have to have one for each cat. Her litter box is the right size for her and everything not scented litter either it's plain. Some days I have no problem with her at all and she goes potty all by herself and I may have to catch her maybe once. Then just some days she refuses to use the litter box and I can't understand why . Even when it's right in front of her she will just go on something like my shoe,backpack,shirt,book or one time my hubby was working on a computer he left it unplugged opened and she found it went in and did number 1. I can't understand why she's giving me such a hard time. It's almost always my stuff to that she goes on <.< is this little cotton ball trying to tell me something? I've rescued kittens before and litter trained them all and never had this problem. I even had to bottle feed one and had no problem with litter training. I don't have a whole lot of experience in this stuff I guess. She's a pet shop cat and she had a litter box in her cage when I was looking at her in the pet shop. Opi was a semi feral street cat and was about a month in half or so when we rescued him I never had this problem with him. She's my first pet shop cat and she's a moon faced Persian I've never had one of those so is this the problem? How do I keep her from ruining my stuff and doing her business in the right place?
