Part of your kitten’s charm is its independence, stubbornness, and free spirit. This free spirit also means your kitten will be less responsive to training than a puppy.
However, cats and kittens can still be trained. You might teach your kitten to use a litter tray, stay off the kitchen counters, or even not to use your couch as a scratching post.
It’s important to remember that your cat isn’t misbehaving on purpose – it’s just displaying normal, natural behaviours, and it doesn’t know that these are undesirable to humans.
You should provide your kitten with lots of toys and environmental enrichment throughout its life to keep it occupied, and to curb bad behaviour.
Please note: some information may vary between cats. If you are unsure, please consult your veterinarian.
