I recently moved and had to take my cat out of the environment of inside/outside cat to strictly inside. He can go outside if he wants, but since his one adventure out -- that lasted all day -- he refuses to cross the threshold again. I have never had to deal with a litter box, clawing at furniture, and other things that go with having a completely indoor cat. I need tips about litter box -- I have to keep it in the kitchen right now -- no other place to put it. the litter gets all over the floor, and of course the smell. i clean it nightly. -- I have thought about trying to toilet train him. Clawing at the carpet and furniture -- anyway to stop this. I have to take him to the vet to get his claws clipped, he will not let me near him. You think if I work with him and slowly get him used to going out on the screened porch that i could keep him out there while i am not at home? I have never had cats before him. he was abandoned at a feed store when he was about a couple of days to a week old, i raised him on a bottle and now he is HUGE. any advice is very much appreciated. I wish he would go back to being an indoor outdoor cat -- any thoughts on this?
