So many of us assume that we only have two options as to where we can teach our dear cat to go to the bathroom: Give them a litter box to use that needs to be cleaned every other day, or send them outside which will require you to build a fence or keep a constant watch on them to avoid them getting into danger. The truth is that you can also choose option 3; teach them to use your household toilet, or cat toilet training. |
Yes, it seems a little strange imaging how you can go about teaching your dear old cat, or younger kitten to jump up on the toilet. But people all over have been using cat toilet training to get the messy, smelly litter box out of their house forever. You can do so with relative ease by using your imagination, or buy purchasing commercial cat toilet training kits that are designed to make the process simple.
This type of training is best done when your cat is young, not long after litter box training, but can be done at any age. The basic principal revolves around having the cat get used to using a litter box, then using the fact that they're trained to do their business in cat litter to slowly lure them to the toilet.
Most cat toilet training kits usually come with three color coded rings I.e., red, yellow and blue. The final ring used will be a white one, which should match your own toilet seat. You can place litter in the rings to start with -- the first ring will have only a small hole to expose the water in your toilet and each ring will expose more and more water to the cat. You can expect training to last 6 - 8 weeks, but it will be well worth it in the end.
