You can train your cat to use the toilet. By doing this it will save you time and money. There will be little or no mess. Once the cat has been trained to go to the toilet, you will be able to eliminate the cat litter and odor associated with cats. You will need a few things to help you on your way. Aluminum foil, a tray, and cat litter preferably flushable.
You will not have to clean the litter box anymore and will save money on not having to buy the litter anymore. You need to decide which toilet in the house you will use. Also, what toilet in the house the cat will use. When you have two toilets it can be easier to train than when you only have one toilet in the house.
You will need to use an aluminum tray to set up the toilet. With two toilets in the house, you can leave the bowl in the toilet and you don’t have to remove it if you need to use the toilet in the house. If you only have one toilet, it’s not so convenient to share it with your cat. All you have to do is remove the tray when you want to use the toilet. Make sure you leave the seat down and the lid up for the training period. Leave a note on the guest toilet so your cat doesn’t litter the floor when the lid is down.
Replace the litter tray with an aluminum hob. The aluminum tray should be the right size to fit in the toilet. The lid of the seat should be able to close so that the lid of the seat keeps the tray in place. Don’t forget to close the lid. The result can be less than attractive.
Start moving the tray closer and closer to the toilet that the cat will use. Make sure you don’t move it if the cat doesn’t know it’s there. Once the litter tray is in the bathroom, but something about an inch thick under the tray. Magazines are a very bad choice for this. The magazines are slippery and the litter box can fall. Keep putting the litter box about an inch higher every day until the litter box is on the same level as the toilet. The cat will be able to get into the litter box in the beginning. If you raise the litter tray, the cat will have to jump into it. You may want to secure the litter box so that it doesn’t move when the cat jumps in.
Let the cat know by scraping its claws into the litter box. If there is no litter in the litter box the cat will be confused and will not understand what is going on. After the litter tray is in the toilet, you can use a litter that can be flushed down the toilet. If you use the flushable litter, you will have little or no litter to clean up.
Stay there for about 3 weeks. During this time reduce the litter in the litter box and make a 1″ diameter hole in the box. Make the hole 1/2″ bigger every week. If the cat messes around on the floor, the cat will try to let you know that you are going too fast. If your cat is heavy, try using two trays to keep the weight in.
You can wait to train your cat until she is at least 6 months old. Cats younger than that can be unbalanced and can eventually become a big problem. Don’t be discouraged as the process can take up to two to three months. The cat will start with two legs on the tray. As the hole in the tray gets bigger (1/2″ per weak) he will move the third leg to the toilet seat. Finally, the cat will have all four legs on the seat. Some cats may not be able to grasp the seat properly. If the cat is the only one using that toilet, you can put some kind of tape on the lid of the seat.
