- Ways to Help
The Hermitage Cat Shelter has started adopting out cats who don’t always go inside the box. We have developed the Piddle Program for those kitties who need a little help in being reintroduced to their litter boxes. We have had 100% success with this program so far. Outlined below is our program and products:
Dr. Elsey’s Cat Attract Litter
R & R- Flower Essence
Spraying- Flower Essence
It is important to begin the transition period with confinement of the kitties in a smaller area of the home, i.e., bathroom or bedroom. The litter box, food bowl and water bowl should be in the same room so that they have an opportunity to be in a less stressful environment than would be true if access to the entire home was available.
This part of the program should continue for at least two weeks during which time an evaluation can be made. Keep in mind that the kitties will be going through the adoption transition period as well at this time. I know that both you and the kitties will be patient with each other.
The evaluation will determine if additional transition period efforts are needed and/or whether cessation of piddling/spraying behavior is the result. If you have further questions contact The Hermitage Cat Shelter at 520-571-7839.
If you have a really hard case piddler you can contact the experts who make Dr. Elsey’s Cat Attract Litter at 877-311-2287 or www.preciouscat.com.
Good luck with the program, and thanks for giving the kitties this wonderful chance to be in a loving home.
