Since we\’re going to discuss potty training a cat, we have to set some basic rules down. Most important one is that if you are unable to catch the cat going potty on the floor at the moment; it will not make sense at all to the cat what you do to them about it. Cats remember things like that only briefly. No rubbing the nose of the cat in it, which will only distress, or do anything whatsoever that might harm or hurt your cat. By doing these painful acts is only going to make the cat afraid of you and you will have a very difficult time training your cat to do any behaviors, or handling your cat.
Having a cat potty trained on any household toilet you will save 1000s of dollars in kitty litter. Will keep the cats area clean, safe and dry, and because a cat does not like messes this is a great way to get rid of the mess for you.
Now you wonder why someone might want to have the cat utilize the toilet rather than the cat litter box. Within the fecal, of the feline, when mixed with kitty litter could cause people of every age group to get sick. When the cat comes out of the litter box to someone, on its paws are the germs from the litter box.
With a cat being toilet trained, the feces goes under the water this will help prevent the disease from spreading. You will find devices on the market which may help you house break your cat. The devices have books to help and support you with toilet training your cat.
First, you will need to put the device in the toilet. It is basically a compact shallow version of a toilet bowl that fits beneath the ring on the toilet.
The advice is to put little bit of cat litter in the small portion of the plastic bowl. Then remove all other cat litter boxes, so the cat will simply find litter in one location. 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 may be some kind of fragrances to use on the toilet device to help attract the cat to that particular area. Leave the cat for a while in the bathroom, with the door closed, privacy is something that cats need and want. Hopefully, the cat will begin to explore the cat litter there. If there seems to be a downside to 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, prior to getting the training started. In this time if you see that cat has to go, pick the cat up and put it on the toilet with the device on so that kitty will see the unit and the litter
This will take time and a lot of patience by you and some good training to the cat. The cat doesn\’t have natural instincts to go in the bathroom and go on the toilet. When a cat is older, this may be a real task as the older cats are often set in their ways and don\’t like change. With this, you will need to work with the slow approach.
