Toilet Training Your Cat 

1. Step one

The first step when training your cat to defecate in the toilet is to move the cat’s litter box to a place right next to the toilet. Make sure your cat is comfortable using this litter box and keep it there for as long as you feel it’s necessary for the cat to get used to the new place.

Pro tip: Go slow. If cats are confused, they may find a place in your home to “go” where they feel safer. A few accidents happen, and it’s hard to break this bad habit, so let your pet’s behavior determine when to move on to the next step.

2. Step two

Raise the height of the litter box gradually. Every time you raise the height of the litter box, remove a little.

Pro-Tip: Secure the litter box to the phone books or a stack of newspapers so that it doesn’t move when your cat jumps onto it.

3. Step three

Gradually move the litter box 1 inch closer to the toilet each day until the box is directly over the seat. Continue removing the litter from the box until there is only a thin layer, no more than 1inch deep.

4. Step four

Replace your litter box with a “training box”. Make sure the training box can hold your cat’s weight. There are a few options for you here. You can either make your own or buy one of the numerous commercial training devices available.
Here is how to create your own training box:

  • Lift the toilet sheet and tape a piece of wax paper covering the whole of the toilet seat.
  • Add flushable litter to the wax paper.
  • Lift the toilet seat and tape a bowl or aluminum pan to the edges. Put down the toilet seat to hold the pan in place. Add some flushable litter to the pan.

Pro-Tip: Clean out the litter after each use and add some catnip to the clean litter.

5. Step five

Transition to your cat using only the toilet each time. Cut a hole in the wax paper or aluminum pan about one inch in the center and gradually increase the size of the hole until the cover is almost gone. As you are reducing the size of the cover, also reduce the amount of litter so that there is no litter when the paper or bowl is removed.

6. Step six

Flush the toilet after each use by your cat.

Pro-Tip: Do not teach your cat to flush the toilet. Although cats are able to learn to flush, they sometimes enjoy it a little too much – wasting water.

7. Step seven

Give your pet a treat! Rewarding your cat for a job well done is essential to their success.

Pro Tip: If your cat is a little scared of the water in the bowl, add some litter to the water and the cat will associate the smell with their litter box.
