When you give her food in it, and she grabbs it and runs out, don't try to close the door on her. When she goes in praise her, let her know its good to go it there, it might take 2-3 days, but she will like it. During the night I would close the door (the crate should be next to you so that she will "feel" you there). She will cry a little at first, but will settle down and go to sleep. Covering the crate and putting shirts with your scent is a good idea to get Pita to relax.
