I have two mixed breed cats, who just turned one year old. They are brother and sister from the same litter, named; Diago and Mischief (Misty). I have thought about toilet training them ever since I got them at 8 weeks of age, however we were moving around a bit at the time and so we used two litter boxes instead. I use one large covered box and one small- both of which use wood pellets as litter- which is way better then clumping litter in many ways. It doesn't smell, other than the wood smell.. it is safer for the cats.. its only 5 bucks for a 40 pound bag.. and its MUCH easier to clean. All you do is scoop the business and the pee turns into sawdust and falls to the bottom of the box.

Anyways I still want them using the toilet so I have purchased what I need and hope we have some success. I choice to blog this because I would like the support when needed.

I have decided to use the Citikitty to toilet train my two guys. I found it cheap on ebay- waited a month for it to arrive- and let it sit for 8 months in my closet. :)
I choice to use a kit like this because I only have one toilet and will be sharing with the cats- so I wanted something easy to take off when I want to use the toilet.
Citikitty is suppost to take 4 one week steps to teach your cat to use the litter box, but I have chosen to slow things down and move the litter box up to the toilets position slowly.
Today I moved the large litter box- their favourite- into the bathroom right next to the toilet. The other one I left out in the hall like it was before just in case. I showed Misty the box- who showed no interest in it at all.. then I went to get Diago and could not find him. He had snook passed me and used the box for #2 already. Good boy.

I am going to let them get used to it for a day or two then take away the small box- then move the box up to the height of the toilet..
