|My kittens excelled at opening the trash, they even went on line, to learn how to combat, whatever mommy came up with. They pretty much had me stumped. Think it was someone on here, or one of the boards, who came up with the idea, of the little rubber trash can, with the locking lid, and it locks real tight. You just have to make sure, you lock it tight, test it before you walk away. It is a real pain, to open, once its locked tight, but little kittens, can no longer, get it open. As I tell them, mommy always wins, mol.
As for the litter box, some kitties just don't cover their stuff, thats just the way it is, just like some people, don't have good bathroom habits. Kittens learn litter box habits from their momma.
If you have 2 kittens, you should have 2 kitty boxes, and they should be large, no hoods, and you should use the scoopable kind. Its the consistancy of sand, much easier for kittens to paw, then little clay stones.
The scoopable also absorbs the odor better. I use Cats Pride, the one with the pink top or the red top, on the big jug, not all Cats Pride cat litter is scoopable, or the consistancy of sand. You have to get the one in the jug. You also need to scoop every day, or at least every other day.
I have one box in the bedroom, because the kittens eat in there. Everybody else eats in their carrier, so nobody comes out, until everybody is done, that way they don't have to wait. The other boxes are in the bathroom. I have a small bathroom, and ya, it can be a pain, to step over them, but that way they are not all in the bedroom.
What do you feed? If poopies really really stink, its the food.
hope this helps.
