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.

Making strides

So far so good..things are progressing! Meals are getting eaten and bathroom breaks are a little more pedictable. Today I lifted up the litter box on another set of tupperwear.. the entrence is now the height of the toilet. Ill see how this goes..tomorrow I am back at work so they'll will have more than 24 hours to show me if they are ok with it or not. If all goes well tomorrow ill move up a step..turn the box and lift it an inch or two, guess ill need to find some books.
I haven't decided if I should put the city kitty on at the same time or wait a day to add Ill probably wait. On a side note I wonder how well the toilet will do with wood pellets .. they should be fine I hope!
