Why Train Your Cat to Use the Toilet

Do you ever get tired of emptying that cat litter box? Or how about that smell that the cat litter box makes? Eww! It makes you want to get rid of the cat, so you don't have to deal with it anymore or possibly throw the cat outside.

However, there is a simple solution just around the corner for you and your fur baby.

Steps in How To Train You Cat to Use the Toilet

The first thing you need to do is make sure your cat knows about cat litter because you are going to use the cat litter to trick your cat in to start using the toilet.

Keep your old cat litter box until you know for sure that your cat has completed its training. You wouldn't want to have to buy a new cat litter box if the cat didn't like the toilet.

Remember, some cats may take longer to train while other cats may not want anything to do with the toilet. Every cat is different. So don't get discouraged if your cat is not trainable. Be patient and give your cat their private space to learn on their level.

Take the Citikitty kit that you ordered; if you haven't purchased a Citikitty Kit yet, you can find the buy button at the top of this article. When you open up the box, there are going to be three different littler pans inside for you to use.

Here are the steps to take when training your cat to use the toilet.

  • Start by sitting the cat litter box that the cat is already using beside the toilet. Your cat will start getting used to that spot.
  • Every few days raise the cat box off the floor a few inches {get the cat used to go up for the cat litter box}
  • Each day, build the cat litter box a little higher until the cat litter box is even with the toilet seat.
  • Now you are ready to start using the toilet instead of the cat litter box.
  • Tape the toilet seat to the back of the toilet, so the lid doesn't hit your cat. If your cat gets spook, it might not take well to the training, as you predicted.
  • Start with the cat litter pan that has no opening in it. Don't forget to use the flushable cat litter. Don't want you to clog up your toilet.
  • Sit the litter pan with no opening in the middle under the rim of the toilet seat.
  • Tip, if the cat doesn't want to jump on the toilet, try putting some catnip in the litter to motivate the cat.
  • After a couple of weeks, you may switch over to the litter pan that has a hole in the center of it — allowing your cat to start getting used to his pee and poop hitting the water.
  • However, some cats may need longer or shorter periods in between each step.
  • A couple of weeks later, you can remove the cat litter pan with the hole in the middle and use the litter pan with only a ring.
  • If your cat has trouble standing on the edge of the toilet seat, you can lay the toilet seat cover down and just cut a hole in the center, leaving the cat plenty of room to stand on the sides to do his/her private business.

So try training your cat to use the toilet. Make your house smell a little bit nicer without that nasty cat litter box smell.

Once your cat is thoroughly trained, you can now throw out that old cat litter box. Or store it away for later use.
