Q. Why doesn't my litter trained female kittem use the litter box since we moved house?

Answered By

A. She is most likely stressed out with the move. Kitties can be quite sensitive. Try to place 2 litter boxes in or near locations she has had accidents. She should become more comfortable after things have settles but it could take several weeks. You can try a product called Cat Attract that you add to litter and also pet rescue remedy and feline pheromone wall diffusers to help minimize stress.
