So you’re thinking about toilet training your cat?  Lots of people think this is only done as a gag in the movies but the truth is it’s a great habit to get your feline in.

How many times have you walked through the door of someone’s home and instantly knew they were a cat owner? That little litter box can give off a strong odor, and it’s not always a pleasant one. Lots of homeowners want to rid their home of that awful smell.

Since they would never, ever consider getting rid of their furry feline friend, they’ll have to find a suitable alternative.  That’s where toilet training your cat comes in.

You could train your cat to only go outside.  That would certainly solve the problem.  But what if you live in a very populated city with lots of busy streets or lots of big, mean dogs roving around? Many cat owners are petrified of losing their kitty to an automobile or a vicious dog.

All in all, toilet training your cat makes a lot of sense.  I’ll bet you are wondering just what’s involved.  Well, I’m not going to lie to you.  It’s not going to happen overnight.  But, there is a great manual that you can buy cheap that will help you with this.

It will be much easier if you have a younger cat, but older felines can be taught to use the toilet as well. The first step will be getting them used to the bathroom and getting them comfortable with the room and surroundings. You should start leaving the door to the bathroom open so your cat can do a little exploring.

Another tip that is going to make it much easier is to move the litter box close to the bathroom.  If you can fit it right next to the toilet, that would be ideal. This is going to get the cat to think of the bathroom as a place that is suitable to do it’s business

If it’s not too much of an inconvenience, you may want to actually start putting the litterbox right on top of the closed toilet seat.  This will work better if you happen to have a second bathroom. In effect, this will actually train the cat to jump on the toilet when it has to go.  It’s a step in the right direction.

After a couple of weeks, the cat should get used to jumping on the toilet to go.  Now is the time to replace the litter box with a smaller plastic pan.  You can add some litter to the pan to make your kitty more comfortable.  Your goal here is to train the cat to go in a smaller area that is closer to the size of the toilet.

Another secret is to buy a spare toilet seat, and put it on top of the litter box or pan.  The cat will begin to understand that it needs to get on top of the toilet seat when it needs to go to the bathroom.

Of course, this is only the beginning, and there is a lot more to it.  That’s where a good manual comes in.  I highly recommend  It will have your cat going like a human pretty fast!  You’ll have to teach the cat to flush yourself, however!
