Reader Email: It Gets on the Seat (Cat Toilet Training)

readeremailHELP400x533.333Hi,  I was using the Litter Kwitter system and only was on the red stage, switched to the amber stage, and they could urinate correctly but had accidents when defecating.

Anyways, they had no problem using the Litter Kwitter red stage, so I switched to the Relaxed Cat method.

Thanks, Chris Continue reading

Surprisingly enough, I came across your YouTube videos of Gustav, and then read all about how you managed to train your cats the DIY method . . . which I should have used in the first place.

We have a female, 8 months old, halfbreed Sokoke cat, that I'm very much afraid will be even more confused if I make a mock toilet and start things from scratch. Continue reading
