Learn how to train your cat to use the toilet by following the tips below.
Take the Box near the Toilet
Start the whole process of using a kitty box over a cat litter tray for this purpose. Then move that box to a spot near your toilet. Try to add small height to the cat’s box everyday until it reaches the height of your toilet.
Time to take out the Box
As your cat gets used to his new litter box sitting at a certain height, it’s time to take it out. Replace it with a flat bottomed metal bowl that can be placed over the toilet bowl instead. Leave the toilet seat down and put a lot of litter in that metal bowl. When you put your cat inside the toilet, he will think that it where he goes to relieve nature’s call. The smell of the litter would make him realize that. Read also: Teach Your Cat To Use Toilet.
It is also important to show your cat where his feet should be once he’s over the toilet bowl. Praise your cat for doing it right. After the cat is done using the toilet, empty the urine from the bowl right away. And as you go along, reduce the amount of litter you put in the bowl.
When you get to the stage where there are only tiny amounts of litter placed in the metal bowl, use water instead. Your cat will not be happy about it outright. But soon, he should be able to see that it’s okay. If your cat really doesn’t like the water on the bowl, add a few bits of litter again. Redo all the steps until he gets used to the water.

Add more water everyday until you reach a height of 3 inches. If you see that your cat is getting used to it, you can remove the metal bowl altogether. He should be ready to use the toilet as it is. When that happens, then all your efforts for toilet training your cat are successful. If it doesn’t happen, continue to train your cat until he finally gets it right.
