Our question this week was:

Can I kennel train our cat at night like our dog is? Can they "hold it" all night like a dog? Our cat is 5 months old.

Answer

Hi – thanks for your email. Hummm...no one has ever asked me about "kennel" training their cat. The first question that comes to my mind is "why"? Why do you want to kennel train your cat? Most cats at 5 months of age are fully litter box trained.

I guess it is possible but why not just make sure your cat has a litterbox and give them run of the house?

An article that might be helpful to you is on our Petplace.com is "Litterbox Training your Cat".


Best of luck!
