Potty Training for Cats
- By Anita Hampton
Initially, cat toilet trainers should know that cats
learn one trick at a time. Changes are made after a
first trick is mastered. A cats' motto: "Slowly
but surely." The capacity of cats to learn
differ and so are expectations, control them to avoid
Consider the kind of cat to be potty trained. There
are pampered, indoor, and spoiled cats. These types
are the ones can be toilet trained. It is vital to
maintain a house that does not smell like there is a
cat living in it.
Follow these steps on how to effectively toilet train
1. Start by placing the cat's litter box near the
bathroom door. He should know the new location and
uses the litter box as usual.
2. After about a week, put something underneath the
potty trainer to elevate it. It could be a bunch of
old newspapers, cardboard boxes, or floor mats.
3. Raise the litter box an inch higher every other
day until it reaches the level of the toilet seat.
4. At the start of the training, the cat just steps
onto the litter box as usual until it slowly jumps up
and down from it.
5. Lift the toilet lid up in order for the cat to
learn how to tromp with only the seat to step on.
6. Next, move the potty trainer above the toilet
seat. Leave it this way for a week or two.
7. The most exciting part: remove the litter box from
the toilet bowl but put down the metal bowl inside.
Put a few litters for cat's recognition of purpose.
8. Once the cat is used to using the toilet bowl,
tutor him on how to squat the right way and that is
holding the legs for the correct posture as often as
possible until mastered. If the cat has his all fours
on the toilet seat, begin by holding the two legs in
9. As soon as he knows how to squat properly, lift
the hinds out. Assist the cat as he learns how to
balance in that position.
10. Start removing the litter from the metal bowl.
Now put water at the bottom and increase the contents
11. Once the feline is already comfortable with the
water in the metal bowl, take it all off the toilet
Cat toilet training is a slow process. Time and
effort are invested to obtain a kitty litter free
house. Not only does an owner get rid of the ghastly
chore of cleaning the litter but get more time to
enjoy the catís company.
