I don’t know if I mentioned this on here before (this week has befuzzled my brain) but Karl and I intend on toilet training Hex. As in, properly toilet training in a human toilet.
I have purchased a product especially designed to train cats to do the task, so there’s no duct taping saucepans to toilet bowls and other seemingly wacky ways of doing it like I saw on YouTube! The product is the Litter Kwitter, and basically consists of 3 rings of coloured plastic that sit inside a white seat ‘device’ on top of the normal toilet bowl.
Each ring represents a step in the process whereby the aim is to encourage your cat to pee and poop into the actual toilet, instead of having to use a litter tray. This eliminates smells, gets rid of mess and obviously has the advantage of saving the cost of litter. Now, Hex is a real digger, so if this works it’s going to save me some back-breaking sweeping!
Anyway, as the title suggests, my Litter Kwitter arrived today. We watched the DVD that comes with the pack and it’s both amusing and informative. We’ve put the normal litter tray away and started Hex on the red beginner ring (sealed) in place of his normal tray. He hasn’t used it yet, but I know he’s due in the next hour or so (I know my cat’s bowel habits?) Here’s hoping that he takes to it straight away!
I’ll update you over the next 2 months (the time it takes, apparently) on how it goes. Maybe even some pictures, if I can do it without disturbing the poor little kitty!
