I got a very young kitten about a week ago. From the previous owner, she was litter trained, and only had a couple accidents.
I get her home, and I can't seem to get her to use her litter box at all. She's peed her basket and the couch a couple times, and poops on the guest bed (which is where her food bowl and litter box are). I've managed to catch her peeing a couple times and put her in the litter box, but that doesn't seem to catch on for her. I also threw all her poop into the litter box, and very thoroughly washed the sheets.
Before she was weaned, she was kept in a single room, where her food, litter box, and toys were all there. Her food dish and litterbox are still in the same room, but I'm using a different type of litter; she had newpaper pellets before, and I'm using a gravel type now.
Every time I put her in the litter box to show her where to do her business, she just jumps right out. What can I do to re-train this kitten to use her litter box?
