Cat toilet training

Cat toilet training

One of the first things as an owner who wants to toilet train your cat is to know about your cat. The behavior of a cat; the does and don’ts of training a cat.

Since we are going to talk about potty training a cat, we need to set some basic rules down. The most important one is that if you do not catch the cat going potty on the floor at the very moment, what you do about it will not make any sense to the cat. 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. 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 behave or take 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. It will keep the cat’s 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 the cat to use the toilet, not the litter box. When mixed with kitty litter, the fecal of the feline 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 a family member is sick or an old person, they are very susceptible to this disease.

With a cat being potty trained, the fecal goes under the water, and 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.

Let’s 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 a 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 used to this and see the toilet, before getting the training started. At this time, if you see that the cat needs to go, pick the cat up and put it on the toilet with the device on so that the kitty will see the device and the litter.

This will all take time and lots of patience from you and some good training for the cat. The cat does not have natural instincts to go to 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 a 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 their going but remember to reward them when
