|All mine are crate trained, they were all taught as kittens. When I brought the kittens home at 8 weeks old, they were crated for 2-3 days, and shut in the bedroom. They had soft clean blankets, toys, food/water and
a cat box. After a few days, they were let loose in the bedroom, when I was there to supervise them, but when I could not, or was at work, they were crated, it was for their safety.
They have disposable kitty boxes, with the litter already in them, in the pet section, but what I did, was use a show cat box, which is on the smaller size. I got it at the dollor store, in the storage bin section, the dimensions are about that as a cake pan, but it is very deep, and has a top on it, that I use to travel with.
Nothing wrong with teaching them to crate, you just have to make sure they have at least water, if they are sched fed, and a cat box. And soft towels and blankets, makes them more comfortable, I also put newspapers under the blanket, just in case, they spilled their water.
Best of luck.
