New kitten weeing on my bed!
Hi. I need some urgent help. I've taken in a new kitten about two weeks ago. For the first week, I kept him apart from my older cat, so that the two of them could get used to each other. The baby was staying in my room, and had no problem using his litter tray. I've introduced them to each other gradualy, and for the last week they were together all the time. Now, the little one started weeing on my bed, even though he used to go in his sand box. His litter tray is always clean. Please help! How do I prevent this fromm happening?

Hi Pepper

I would suggest you keep an eye on him and close access to the bedroom initially. His sandbox could be situated in such a position that he could have gotten a fright while in the box and now he prefers to go to a more secure area.
Move his box into a quite corner and then close access to the bedroom. Keep an eye on him and when you think he needs to go, pick him up and put him in the box.

good luck
