Bug showed promising signs when I revealed the City Kitty package that arrived by courier. As soon as he could he began ripping it to pieces. I later reflected this was probably because there was catnip inside the box, which the manufacturer claims helps get some cats interested in using the system. Always one to be in the heart of the action, Bug looked very keen to know what was going on when I poured out the litter. He had been in inside all night so I was sure he’d want to relieve himself asap. Like humans, cats crave familiarity and the City Kitty guide suggested putting a litter tray near-by, which could later be removed. As soon as I filled it with crystals Bug jumped straight on to do his business. Although not exactly the progress I had expected, it was a small step in the right direction!
