Can you teach a cat to use toilet? The answer is yes, you can. 

Cats are wonderful pets, but keeping their litter box can be a hassle, especially if you don’t have enough room for a litter box in your bathroom, and you don’t want to go through the trouble of moving it every time you leave the house. But If you want to toilet train your cat you have to first train your cat to use a litter box and then gradually it will learn how to use the toilet. Here are eight steps for how to train your cat to use toilet?

Step 1 – Buy The Right Litter Box

The first step to toilet training your cat is buying the correct litter box. Look for a box that’s big enough for your cat to move around comfortably.

Prepare The Litter Box: Once you have the litter box, it’s time to prepare it for use. Fill the box with about two inches of litter and place it in an area that’s quiet and away from high-traffic areas in your home. You’ll also consider the type of litter you use. Some cats prefer sand-like litter while others prefer clumping or pellet litter.

Get a litter box with low walls. Cats are notoriously bad about covering their wastes, so this will make sure that all their pee and poop gets into the pan.

Step 2 – Put the Litter Box in the Bathroom

Once you’ve purchased a new litter box, place it in your bathroom where you plan on toilet training your cat. It’s important that there should be enough room for the cat in the toilet to use the litter box comfortably.

Make sure it can move around without having to climb over anything or worry about getting wet from contact with water or anything else on the floor.

Step 3 – Clean Up The Litter Box Regularly

Cats are creatures of habit and like a clean litter box. So, the first step to toilet training your cat is to keep the litter box clean. Scoop it out at least once a day, and if you have more than one cat, scoop it out twice a day. You may also want to consider using a self-cleaning litter box.

Step 4 – Introduce Your Kitty to Its New Litter Box

If you’ve never seen a cat pooping on a toilet seat, you’re in for a real treat! Just kidding – it’s not that gross. But it is important to make sure your cat is comfortable with its new litter box before you start training.

One way to do this is by scattering the old litter around the edges of the toilet and letting your kitty explore. The more time they spend near the potty, the better they’ll get used to the smell and location of their new bathroom space.

The more time they spend near the toilet, the better they’ll get used to the smell and location of their new bathroom space. Another option is using a second (non-toilet) litter box next to your toilet as a way of gradually introducing them over time without disturbing their current routine too much.

When it comes down to actually introducing them into their personal toilet environment, simply introduce them as if you were showing them a brand-new toy or scratching post with enthusiasm and excitement.

Step 5 – Get Down on Hands and Knees

The best way to start the process of toilet train your cat is by getting down on all fours and imitating your cat. Make sure you have a good grip on your cat before you begin. Gently place your cat on its back and hold it there.

Use one hand to support its head and the other to rub its belly. Allow the kitty to roll onto its side so that it can move around. Take advantage of those moments when they are relieving themselves, so they can get used to the idea of sitting in their own poop while they go to pee.

Step 6 – Give Kitty Time

Cats are habitual creatures and need time to adjust to new changes. So don’t be discouraged if your cat poops on the toilet seat after a few days of successful toilet training. Just give her some time to get used to the new routine.

It will take at least three weeks for her to develop the habit of using the toilet, so don’t worry if it takes a little longer. Remember that it is used to doing its business outside, so it’s going to take time for him or her to realize that this is now their designated spot. Be patient and persistent with your kitty!

Step 7 – Put Them In A Position Where They Can’t Help But Use The Toilet

There is a pretty simple method to get your cat to pee in the toilet seat. All you need to do is to place your cat in a position where it can’t help but use the toilet. This usually means putting them on the toilet seat or in the bathroom sink.

Cats are very reluctant to poop outside of their litter box so this should make it easier for them to get used to using the toilet instead. However, this may not work for all cats so don’t be surprised if it doesn’t work for yours!

The cat pooping on the toilet seat method has a much higher success rate than most other methods because it forces the cat into an uncomfortable position and forces them into using the toilet before they want to. So far, 100% of my cats have been able to successfully use their own toilets with this method and I hope that will be true for you too!

Step 8 – Don’t Force Anything, Just Watch

If you’ve made it this far, give yourself a pat on the back—you’re more than halfway there! The final step is to simply sit back and watch. At this point, your cat should be using the toilet with no problem. But if for some reason they regress, don’t force them—just go back to Step 1 and start again. With a little patience and perseverance, you’ll have a fully trained cat in no time!
