Someone will cause resentment one thought that such an intimate thing as a toilet hygiene will have to share with the cat. And someone, in contrast, in this term refers approvingly. Most cat owners will find a lot of positive things that the cat does not defecate in the tray, and directly into the toilet bowl: and no smell, and every day to clean the tray is not necessary, and a filler for the toilet is not scattered. And so how to train your cat to the toilet, many speculate kotovladeltsy.
But it turns out, has a whole system of schooling cat to the toilet. This system is tested (very well!) And approved not one hundred cat lovers. And if you set out to teach your cat to use the toilet, you should take advantage of this "method". However, for its successful implementation is necessary to consider some points.
First and foremost, it is necessary to understand that you can teach your cat to use the toilet any age. But! Education adult animal takes more time, and if your pet is too small, it just can not cope with this "program". Therefore it is best to train a kitten to a toilet bowl in age from three months to a year.
And one more condition. Prior to accustom the cat to the toilet, you have to teach her how to use a tray. Only tray! And the tray for her to be a permanent and "bezvariantnym" toilet. If the litter box is not located in a toilet, and elsewhere, it is necessary to gradually move him to a toilet bowl. Do this by moving the tray on the way to the toilet every day for twenty centimeters. Depending on the nature and feelings of "shame" of your pet, this step may take a long time. But you can begin to learn only when the cat walks in the tray, standing next to the toilet.
If your kitten accustomed to the tray, not capricious and is not looking for another "toilet", you can safely proceed to his training, which lasts about a month and takes place in several stages.
Growing up a new toilet
How long will this step, depends solely on the characteristics and temperament of your pet. On average, the first phase accustom the cat to the toilet lasts from ten days to one month. But it is possible that to grow to a new toilet and you can in a week, and maybe for that you need, and more than one month. The objective of this phase of training - to raise the tray to a height of a toilet bowl. But it must be done so that the kitten had not noticed such "growth".
To do this gradually to enclose the tray under the newspapers and magazines, lifting him off the floor by two centimeters or three (possible) a day. Calculate the speed of recovery so that in about ten days Tray "grown" up one level to the toilet. But if you calculated the rate of recovery tray affect animal behavior, reduce your speed. So you teach a kitten to jump into the tray, and it gradually gets used to the altitude. The main thing here - patience on your part. Do not scold kitten and do not put in the tray by force, because accustom the cat to the toilet bowl can exclusively at its own free will.
Meet the new toilet
Once the tray is "mature enough" to the height of the bowl, proceed to the next step - the consolidation of skills. This will require two or three days time, and even your pet's innate curiosity. At this stage, the kitten has to get used to the sight bowl. Most likely, the mere contemplation is not limited and will try to explore this new and interesting object. Do not suppress research interest. Give a kitten an opportunity to explore the toilet seat. The main thing is that at this moment nothing frightened him. Therefore, take care of the stability of the whole structure, remove the bowl from the circle with a lid, remove anything that could fall off and scare the kitten, keep the cart in the toilet in his presence. Otherwise, the frightened animal will never want to master toilet and even more, use it as a tray.
We are moving to a new toilet
And the kitten already on it (in the toilet), is afraid of nothing, jumping around the toilet as a young goat, but the need is still celebrating in the tray. And there is a logical question: how to train a kitten to the toilet as a tray?
The second stage - is just the beginning of this "habituation". At this stage, the tray moves to the toilet seat. How to do it? Too slowly: on the first day on the toilet tray is shifted by one quarter (three-quarters rely on a stack of newspapers). The next day, the tray should already be halfway on the toilet, half in the newspapers. And if all your kitten manipulation reacts calmly and shows no dissatisfaction, then on the third day of the tray is completely put on the toilet. Putting the tray on the toilet seat, secure it (eg, double-sided adhesive tape) to remain stationary during movement of a kitten. And do not forget to remove the paper as far as possible from his Kitties. Otherwise Kish itself pile of newspapers to use as a toilet.
Learning a new toilet
The final and most important stage - "excommunication" kitten from the tray. At this stage you need to make sure that the tray remains in place, but the kitten was unavailable. Cover the tray with adhesive tape crosswise, so that the cat could not fit there. And do not forget between the "unavailable", and the rim of the toilet pan to save space where the animal was able to recover. Already accustomed to going to the bathroom in this place, the kitten will use as intended by you free space.
Another embodiment of the final stage. Tray to remove completely, and put into the toilet (hang) plastic strip width of ten to fifteen centimeters from the mound at her vehicle. Dig his kitten can and sit on the strip - not. And it will be forced to relieve themselves sitting on the rim of the toilet bowl. It is said that this option has a greater effect and passes less painful for the animal.
And you can try to do without the filler on the tape. Just blow a tray out of sight (and newspapers there) to smell that emanates from him (no matter how well you do not have washed the tray), without provoking a cat on a quest. The animal jumps on the toilet, as usual, and had already got used to it - and there is no tray! And it is not anywhere! What is smart pussy? Just make your case, sitting on the toilet.
Possible problems and their solutions
In the last stage already Inspired by the success may lie in wait for the master main difficulty: the animal categorically refuses to go to the toilet and clamoring for his return tray. Do not argue! Return the toilet seat and try again. Well, if you do not succeed the second time, then use cunning.
Start in the center of the tray to cut a hole. First, very little, then a little wider, then widened as from the tray will not only bumpers. We throw away bumpers, and enjoy success! This clever way more durable, but also more reliable. Cases of failure to complete use of this method are unknown (unless, of course, do everything by the rules).
The main thing before accustom your cat to walk on the toilet, please be patient. This process can be very long, but worth it. No smell, no expenses for filler or meow nervous early in the morning (if the tray is full) - beautiful! And the hostess is happy and satisfied with her unusual cat tray. What else do you want?
