Even though cats are among the most adorable and cute pets,
they have the foul-smelling and stinking urine and waste as well. It is for
this reason that some individuals decide to abandon or to send back their cats
to animal shelters because they cannot withstand the smell of their waste or
they failed to train their cats to use their litter box properly.
If this is the case, then train them to use human toilet. Is
it really possible to train them to use our toilet? Why not use the litter box
anyway? Well, you can train them to use human toilet with dedication and
patience. For sure, some of us have watched on television cats using the toilet
to pee and to poo, right? Yes, it really exists because some pet owners manage
to train their cats to use human toilet all their own. It is advantageous to
train cats to use the toilet because we do not have to buy garbage bags and
worry of cleaning them everyday. However, training them requires lots of patience,
time and dedication. You can simply tell them that the toilet is the right
place to pee and poo because they do not have the same level of intelligence
like we do.
What do you think are the reasons why pet owners decide to
teach their cats to use the toilet? Aside from the fact that these boxes reek,
litter boxes are also unsanitary and it can be the source of bacteria and
microorganisms. When cats cover their waste using their paws, germs are
transferred from their paws to different areas of your home. You do not want
that to happen, right?
By training them to use the toilet, you will not smell foul
and irritating odors from their wastes. You will also save thousands of dollars
in buying different types of litter boxes related products for your cats.
Moreover, some pet owners want to train their cats not only for sanitary and
health reasons, but for novelty factor as well. By slowly training them, you
can have your cats use the toilet in no time.
Steps in training cats to use the toilet:
First thing you must do is to slowly move the litter box
closer to your toilet.
Once the cat is accustomed to using the litter box near the
toilet bowl, gradually raise the box by leveling it with the toilet bowl.
After the cat is used to using the elevated litter box,
place it on top of your toilet seat and let it stay there for several days
until such time he is used to using it despite the height.
Once he is accustomed in using the box above the toilet
seat, replace the box with a metal bowl which snugly fit your toilet bowl so the
cat can use it comfortably.
After your cat has adjusted to the changes and he is
comfortable using the metal bowl, you can now remove the bowl and you have
successfully trained your cat to use the toilet bowl.
By following these steps, you will have a house free from
smelly and irritating odor of cat’s pee and poo.
