As soon as the house is a little fluffy ball, he immediately needs to start to explain where the place is for going to the toilet. For that all the owners acquire their Pets for the pans and the special fillers, so, as a rule, problems with training the cat to the toilet arises.
But many are seeking to teach your pet greater, for example, to go to the toilet. First, it is convenient, and secondly, this cat will amaze your guests with his good manners and intelligence. But how to do it?
Why teach a cat to go to the toilet
First you need to understand what it is at all necessary.
In fact, the advantages of this useful cat skill will be enough:
- no need to search for a suitable location for the tray;
- not have to constantly buy stuff;
- the apartment will be much cleaner, because a little furry purring love to dig in the litter and dragged it around the house on paws.
Do not forget that not on time removed the tray is always an unpleasant smell throughout the apartment or house. With ordinary toilet, it’s much easier: press the button to flush. That is why many cat lovers are seriously thinking about to accustom their Pets to the toilet, especially now that there are a large number of successful examples when people do manage to teach their cats and dogs.
How to teach your cat to use the toilet: where to start
It is worth noting that to accustom your pet to the toilet is better since childhood, because in a small age, the cat perceives the best education. You should start with your toddler to the tray, because if you just try to put him on the toilet, then the whole idea might be completely disastrous: small animal afraid of the dimensions of your new pot and the sound of the water, and then all will come to him. Besides, the kitten is still too small to get on him.
What to do in this case? How to teach your cat to use the toilet? It is actually very simple:
- The tray should be installed close to the toilet.
- As soon as the kitten will eat, it must sit in a tray (the kids at such a young age go to the bathroom almost immediately after eating). If you regularly do this procedure, then the little cat is much faster get used to his toilet.
- The pot must be filler, because cats by nature are accustomed to bury their excrement (paper or newspaper is not suitable).
What to do if the kitten has chosen a different place for going to the toilet and already there to leave? Blame the pet in this case, it is not because he is still young and doesn’t understand what he should do. In order to accustom the cat to the tray, take a piece of paper or napkin, dip it in a puddle and put in a pan: let the kid smell it determines that the potty is the place where you want to go.
How to teach your cat to use the toilet after tray
Once the cat learns to walk in the tray, you can gradually move to the toilet. It is best to do it when the pet is at least 6 months old.
The whole process will occur in several stages:
- First we need to gradually begin to reduce the amount of filler in the tray. Over time, the kitten without any stress get used to the empty tray, after which he will be easier to get used to the toilet.
- Another trick is to begin to put under the tray of Newspapers and magazines, that over time it has become higher. You need to start small, for example, with some thin paper, then each to put under the tray again and again. It is recommended to increase the height of the tray no more than 2 cm per day. Thus, the pet will be invisible to himself to get used to this altitude.
Attention! If you increase the height of the tray is very important to fix it to one as durable as possible! If the cat, God forbid, during the fall out from the pot, it will be possible to forget not only about his trip to the toilet, but even on the tray.
After such a terrible stress the animal will provide for himself the more secure, for example, somewhere in the corner on the Mat or in the master’s Slippers.
- As soon as the tray is raised to the level of the toilet, you will need to leave it at this height for a while. Let kitty get used to going to the toilet at a certain height. Over time, the tray can be moved to the toilet, and design of Newspapers and magazines to remove. If the pet will not accept the new location of his tray, the stack of papers back into place, but then again repeat the procedure with displacement.
- After the pet will get used to going in the tray, standing on the toilet, you go to the final stage, i.e. to remove the tray and observe the behavior of the cat. Some tailed, leaping to the rim and finding his pot, do not get lost and do their business directly into the toilet. And some more from the floor they see that the toilet pan is not, and therefore refuse to run. What to do in this case? Will have to cover at the time Mike Farley in the toilet. Let him sit there and try to independently climb onto the toilet and do your business. If the cat did it, it’s a must to praise (give a treat and pet) then the pet will know it’s done right.
The most important thing is in any case not to scold the cat if he did something wrong, otherwise he’ll just refuse to continue such training.
If the cat still refused to go to the toilet, you should return him to his tray, and after a while repeat the procedure.
Advice from experienced owners
If the pet continues to refuse to get used to the toilet, you can go on a little trick: in the tray you can make a small hole, gradually increasing its diameter. We need to do it again unnoticed, the pussy should not notice that her pot of something happening. Gradually from the pot will remain one of the bumpers that can be definitively removed, thus the pet will not notice the difference and will begin to do all their business right into the toilet.
Another good option is to buy at the pet store special tray designed for mounting to the toilet. It already has the necessary hole, and perhaps with a guard cat would be priuchatsya.
If any of the stages of learning fails either the first or the second time, you need to step back and do the procedure again. Perhaps the cat just did not understand what was wanted of him, and he should explain the rule again. In addition, any training will depend on the individual characteristics of pet. For all takes time to understand the essence of this kind of game.
It is important to remember that the door to the toilet room must always be open and the toilet lid is raised, otherwise the cat will simply not be able to go about their business.
After pussy will make everything as it should be, it can be praise, to pull him water and wipe the toilet seat with a damp cloth.
