One of the first things as an owner that wants to toilet train
your cat is to know about your cat.
The behavior of a cat; the does, and doníts of training a cat.
Since we are going to talk about potty training a cat, we need
to set some basic rules down. Most important one is that if you
do not catch the cat going potty on the floor at the very
moment; it will not make any sense to the cat what you do to
them about it. Cats remember things like that only shortly. No
rubbing the nose of the cat in it, that will only cause pain, or
do anything that would harm or hurt your cat. By doing any of
these painful acts will only make the cat afraid of you and you
will have a very hard time training your cat to do any
behaviors, or taking care of your cat.
Let us look over the potty training a cat. Having a cat potty
trained on any household toilet will save you thousands of
dollars in kitty litter. Will keep the cats area clean, safe and
dry, and since a cat does not like messes this is a great way to
get rid of the mess for you.
Now you are wondering why someone would want to have the cat use
the toilet and not the litter box. In the fecal, of the feline,
when mixed with kitty litter can cause people of all ages to get
sick. When the cat comes out of the litter box to a person, on
its paws are the germs from the litter box. When you or family
member is sick or aged people, they are very expectable to this
With a cat being potty trained, the fecal goes under the water
this will help prevent the disease from spreading. There are
devices on the market that will help you potty train your cat.
The devices come with books to help and support you with toilet
training your cat.
Letís look at the potty device, to see what steps are taken to
get the cat to use the toilet.
First, you will need to put the device in the toilet. It is
basically a small shallow version of a toilet bowl that fits
under the ring on the toilet.
The recommendation is to put small amount of cat litter in the
small portion of the plastic bowl. Then remove all other cat
litter boxes, so the cat will only find litter in one place.
Another thought is to cover the plants on the floor, so the cat
will not be able to dig in the dirt.
With the device, that you get, there could be some type of
fragrances to put on the toilet device to help attract the cat
to that area. Leave the cat for a while in the bathroom, with
the door closed, privacy is something that cat need and want and
will the cat will explore that the litter in on the toilet and
use it there. If there seems to be a problem with the cat going,
you may want to put the litter box next to the toilet, this way
the cat will get use to this and see the toilet, before getting
the training started. In this time if you see that cat needs to
go, pick the cat up and put it on the toilet with the device on
so that kitty will see the device and the litter
This will all take time and lots of patience from you and some
good training to the cat. The cat does not have natural
instincts to go in the bathroom and go on the toilet. When a cat
is older, this can be a real task as the older cats are usually
set in their ways and do not like change. With this, you will
want to use the slow approach.
In the end, you and your cat will be happy that there are no
more kitty litter boxes in the home.
Rewards are very important in this training and hard also; you
may not see or catch your cat on there going but remember to
reward them when you do see them.
