Toilet Training - Steps 1 & 2

Happy New Year! Suki's New Years resolution is to use the toilet instead of a litter box.  We got a Citi Kitty toilet training kit for Christmas this year, and started it this week. It's been going so well already!

Step 1 is to put your cat's litter box into the bathroom near the toilet, so that they get used to the idea of potty time being in that room. I skipped this step because Suki's litter box was in a closet right next to our bathroom.

We are currently on Step 2. Step 2 basically is when you put the removable tray with flushable litter onto the toilet seat. There is no hole yet (those get punched out as training progresses), so you do have to scoop out the presents whenever you notice them.

Don't forget to get really excited and reward your cat everytime they use the toilet pan! Suki likes to use it when I'm in the bathroom for some reason, so I'm always around to give her high fives and head nudgies (and take pictures of course).

I'll keep you posted on future steps!
