A small indent in the center of the device will be filled with flushable litter. As you progress in training, you begin by cutting bigger and bigger holes in the training seat until your cat gets used to urinating and defecating straight into the toilet rather than litter. You can purchase a training seat or make one on your own. The seat has four rings that can be removed to increase the size of the hole in its center.
At the trainings completion you remove the tray altogether. The Litter Kwitter is another brand of training seat. It has color coordinated training trays of increasing size. As your cat progresses in training, you will swap out a larger tray for a smaller one. Eventually, you’ll be able to move the tray altogether and your cat will eliminate straight into the toilet. The Litter Kwitter is highly convenient but can be somewhat expensive.
If you’d rather save money, you can create a training tray yourself. Understand how to create a training tray. If you opt to create your own training tray, the process is fairly simple. You should have know how to create a training tray before transitioning from the litter box to the toilet. To create the training tray, simply place the aluminum roasting pan over the toilet’s rim. Secure in place with duct tape.
If the tray is not big enough to fully encompass the toilet bowl, fill in any gaps with plastic wrap. Raise the litter box in increments each week. In order to transition your cat from litter box to toilet, you’ll need to raise the litter box up near the toilet seat. Eventually, your cat will learn to jump onto the toilet seat when he has to eliminate each week. Using stacks of newspaper, cardboard, or old magazines raise the litter box by 3 inches each day until it’s on level with the toilet seat. Place the litter box on top of the toilet seat. Once the litter box is on level with the toilet seat, place it on top of the toilet seat.
Leave it there for a few days. This is about how long it will take your cat to get comfortable eliminating on the toilet. Replace the litter box with a training seat filled with flushable litter. Once your cat is comfortably using the litter box without any accidents, it’s time to use your training seat. Secure your training seat on the toilet. If you’re using the Litter Kwitter or a similar product, use the smallest training pan. This training pan will have no hole in it and you’ll simply fill it with flushable litter.
If you’re using an aluminum tray, simply put the tray in place and fill it with flushable litter. Do not cut any holes in the tray yet. Transition into eliminating in the toilet. Give your cat a few days to get used to eliminating in the training tray. Once he does so accident free, it’s time to start making the transition. If you’re using the Litter Kwitter or a similar product, gradually transition into bigger and bigger training seats.
Training seats will have small holes in them that get larger as your cat moves through his training. If you’re using an aluminum, use a screw driver to cut a hole in the bottom of the pan. Every day, make the hole slightly bigger. Gradually decrease the amount of litter you’re using as well. Each time your cat eliminates in the pan, replace the litter with a slightly smaller amount than before. After about two weeks of increasing the size of the hole or training trays, you can remove the training seat completely. Your cat should now be comfortable eliminating straight into the toilet rather than a litter box. Consider if toilet training is right for you and your cat. Toilet training is not for everyone.
