i was looking for a cat litter tray and came across a cat toilet training kit. it has 3 different size rings that sit over the human toilet. bit like what toddlers use i guess. and it means your cat can use the toliet as well. would you let your cat use the family toilet?

It's a great idea. I don't think anyone has ever trained one to flush afterwards though.

I have heard through friends that they know someone who trained their cat to use the toilet but assumed it was crap. wink

As a cat owner the words cat and training are hugely at odds with each other.

'Let'? I'd be thrilled! So much less hassle than cat litter. Cleaner too.

I once knew a cat that peed over the hole in the bath. That was a bit minging. Not my cat..

TCN I would normally defer to your knowledge on all cat matters, but not this time cat flushing toilet

Our cat used to use the bidet. It was the perfect size for a cat toilet and no one else ever used it.
Sadly we have now moved to a bidet-less house so she has to piss in a tray/garden or over the hole in the bath, though we actively discourage that

Off to google this.

A quick flush is easier than cleaning a litter tray.

now i dont know weather to let my cat shit in everyones gardens. or to toilet train him.

when my kids get up for a wee during the night they might just pee on the cat litter :/

My youngest cat drinks out of the toilet bowl if she gets the opportunity. I'd much rather her crap down it grin

My cat was human-toilet trained when I adopted him and it was great for me - very hygienic, low maintenance etc. however over time I traced a few behavioural and health issues down to it (I won't go in to detail for fear of being graphic but can if you would like!) and now use a litter box instead. Basically I realised that I was benefitting but my cat was suffering..

My sister has a cat toilet thing that's plumbed into the mains. All 3 cats use it.

Wow Dame - a special plumbed in cat toilet? I so want to see a photo of that.

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Tue 11-Aug-15 19:34:43

She's in the US. She got it from Craig's List, works a treat apparently. I think it flushes as they get off or something I stopped listening about half an hour into her explainingwink

Sorry, that link doesn't work. If you google cat genie you'll see it.

Dame - well that's fucking amazing!

I'd only let the cat use my loo if it washed its paws afterwards.

Is anyone else thinking of 'Meet the Parents'?

Pumpkinette Tue 11-Aug-15 20:32:20

It would be great if all cats would do this but I'm sure there is some reason cat crap shouldn't go down the toilet.

Something to do with certain parasites they carry not being killed off at waste treatment plants?

Hang on...

Here is an article explaining it. Basically the parasite is killing otters and they think it's the flushing of cat crap that is causing it.
