How do I get a feral cat to use the litter box? He comes in the house and is very affectionate, but one problem- he will not use the litter pan. He goes on my carpet. Help!

It can be difficult to get a feral cat to use the litter box, but you can purchase what’s called “a litter box attractant” that you can sprinkle on your litter to attract him to the box. I would also add a second litter box, so he has two places to go.
