Stress-Free Toilet Training For Cats, Weeks 7 & 8.

Stress-Free Toilet Training For Cats, Weeks 7 & 8.

Dare I Say It? 

I hesitate only out of fear of jinxing it, but toilet training these three has been surprisingly easy. I know the real test will come when I remove the mock toilet, but they seem to be totally unfazed by the process, so far. (crosses fingers and toes)

If you’ve been reading this series on toilet training cats, you’ll know weeks 5&6 went by without incident and, so, this week we’ll graduate to an even larger water container.

 Deja Vu  

While The Littles ate breakfast, I went through my usual weekly cleaning routine in their bathroom and added new litter and an 8 oz. sour cream tub to their mock toilet.

At this point I’m not even sure I still need to lock us all away to allow them to discover the change, but I do. Even though everything has gone smoothly up to this point, I’m still worried they might get spooked with the change and decide to potty somewhere other than their mock toilet. 

But, once locked in the bathroom, they all discover the change fairly quickly and no one has a problem with it. We were through the whole process in mere minutes.

Who’s Training Whom? 

After all three Littles potty in their mock toilet with the larger water tub, I opened the bathroom door to let them out while I finished tidying up their litter. As I do this, Lily jumps up on the toilet and starts meowing very loudly and persistently in my face. (It amazes me that a noise so loud and obnoxious can come from such a tiny and petite frame!) It’s then that I realize Atticus is doing figure 8’s around my legs, and Jasmine is sitting up on the sink staring daggers through me.

Lily, Stress-Free!

Lily

Okay, this is the part where I admit to actually having conversations with my cats. Yes, I am that person. I am a crazy cat lady. 

So, now knowing I’m that person, I ask sweetly “What bebe’s? What’s wrong with mama’s bebe’s?”

And that’s when I hear (in my head of course, I’m not totally crazy!) what I imagine to be Lily’s voice saying, “Treats, biotch! We want our friggin’ treat for pooing in this dumb ass contraption you’ve slapped together. What? Didja really think we’re performing like circus animals for the hell of it? NAH, Biotch! We be doing it for the treats! Now, bust out the fish flakes before someone gets hurt up in here!”

Oh, did I forget to mention Lily is total bad ass gangsta? ‘Cause she is! That cat is as real as the streets, and she don’t play! 

Looking down at Atticus, and knowing I was about to take a full set of claws down my leg, I reached under the bathroom sink and pulled out their fish flakes to treat my little angels for another job well done!
