At the end of a long day, who wants to sift through a messy cat litter box? Certainly not me. Until recently, the litter-box has really been a necessary evil, a small price to pay for our beloved companions. However not any longer. Actually, there’s an underground alternative made for those of us who’re ready to stop the litter habit: toilet training for your cat.

Sounds difficult, right? Not at all. Even though it’s not even close to mainstream, cat toilet training is gaining momentum with cat owners across the nation who are beginning to accept the trend. But before you toss that pesky cat litter box in the trash, there’s a few ways to determing if your cat is ready to take the leap to a litter-free way of life. Think Fluffy has exactly what it takes? Read on.

1. Your cat is already litter-box trained.

Alright, I know what you’re thinking: “Obviously my cat knows how to use the litter-box.” However the inescapable fact is, cats that already know how to use the litter-box can end up being reconditioned to use the toilet instead. That’s because cat toilet training uses your cat’s natural instincts to bury their waste to cover the smell from predators. Throughout the training process your own cat will discover how to put its waste in water rather than litter. Once your cat makes this changeover toilet training becomes a breeze and - voila! Your kitty is potty trained!

2. Your cat is desperate to make you happy.

Does your cat love making you happy? Whether he leaves the occasional “gift” on your doorstep or even offers a warm nuzzle while you are reading, felines who are eager to please tend to be the purr-fect candidates for toilet training. Soon after he discovers that using the toilet pleases you, he will end up being very happy to oblige!

3. You have trained your cat to perform something previously.

Does your kitty come when you give them a call? Believe it or not, simple actions like giving an answer to a voice command can help lay the groundwork for the potty training process. After all, in the event your cat already understands how to “follow the leader”, toilet training may be a piece of cake.

4. Your cat is healthy.

This one might seem like a no-brainer, however healthy and balanced cats have a much easier time leaping up onto their new throne. Ailments like arthritis or even urinary tract infections may have an effect on their capability to learn how to make use of the toilet, therefore sick kitties need to stick to the litter box.

5. You understand your cat.

Can you tell when your cat is having a rough day? If you are like a lot of pet owners, you’re probably in tune with your cat’s feelings. This distinctive bond works as a positive force during the toilet training process. Exactly how? Cats will use body gestures to tell you if they are confident with a specific training step. Whenever you pick up on these signals, both of you can work together to attain a peaceful training pace. You’ll both really feel satisfied whenever you work as a team!
