Potty Training Pussycat

white-cat-on-the-toilet-going-pooThe philosophy behind the process of training a cat to use a toilet is attributed to the cat’s quality of adaptability to reasoning and learning. Cats learn by trial and error, observation and imitation. A cat is able to recall certain information much easily than other pet animals.

Cats won’t do a thing without a direct benefit for them. Any person with an emotional and good communication relationship with a cat may find the cat to be trainable. Many cats have active minds. They generally succeed on encouragement, examination and learning can be trained extremely well.

Some cats prefer going outside to defecate and avoid using the same place twice due to their sensitive sense of smell. Litter training rarely requires human intervention.

Cats can also be trained to make use of a toilet by owners. Successful toilet training depends both on the willingness of the cat to learn and on the patience of the owner to teach. A course on cat toilet training can be found on a website devoted to this facility.

To get rid of a litter tray, you’ll have to undertake little steps one by one.The first step to take is to move your cat’s litter tray away from its original position and at the same time making it sure that your cat can find the new place easily. Leave it there for a few days so your cat gets used to it.

Here you need a lot of patience. Replace the cat’s litter tray with an aluminum foil cooking tray of a suitable size fitting into the toilet bowl correctly. The tray should be 2-3 inches deep and have 1/2 inch of litter in it. Make a step by step gradual movement of the cats’ litter tray towards the toilet bowl. Always keep an eye on the behavior of the cat, while it is adjusting itself to the changed positions of the tray.

At the final stage, place the tray in the toilet bowl. Your cat will know it is there and will become used to mount the toilet to find the litter. The tray should fit firmly on the bowl and the lowering of the seat should hold it in place. Keep the toilet lid open to avoid unpleasant happenings. After 2-3 weeks, start reducing the litter by piercing the tray with a small hole so that cleanliness is ensured. Widen the hole gradually at least once in a week and minutely read the behavior of the cat. Flush regularly to maintain good hygiene as well as to avoid foul smell.

If every thing is normal, remove the tray away from the toilet and leave it bare. If things do not turn out to be as expected, just slow the process a little bit. Finally, there you are. Your cat is trained properly and is ready to use a toilet successfully.

Cats under six months are slow learners. So just be more patient with them and allow them adequate time to get used to the new system. For a normal cat it won’t be that difficult at all provided your communication is understood by your lovely cat.
