5. Do keep your kitten's litterbox in a secluded area.

6. Don't use perfumed litters.

7. Don't use clumping litter with kittens younger than 4 months old.

8. Don't keep the litterbox near food or water bowls.

9. Don't use ammonia-based cleaners on the litterbox.

Good Article. Great Advice. Worth printing out and keeping handy. If not for you, for people you know who are first time "pet Parents".
