When I was litter training mine I would clean out and refill the tray, but put a little wet, soiled bedding back in with some poos too, so they remember what they are supposed to be doing in there :lol: If you clean it too well while hes still learning then he might forget to go back there to do his business. Its so great when they take to it easily like that :D
Serz - if you use cat litter, make sure you only use non-clumping, wooden cat litter. Its 100% wood compressed into little pellets. It won't hurt them if they eat it, but other cat litters can block up their stomachs. I use a horse bedding called megazorb. Its like carefresh, but much cheaper in much larger quantities! Other people use newspaper, straw, hay, wooden cat litter, or various combinations. My two would eat the newspaper though and I found the cat litter much less absorbant than the megazorb. Hope that helps :)
