Litter box problems

Pam Flachs

The boys are on their way to being toilet training. We are up to the point where they are using the toilet with a half roasting pan that has two inches cut away in the back. I maintain about an inch of litter (flushable) in the pans. Ulysses and Jackson are doing fine with it. Every few days I will be taking another inch away.....

That's great news, Aundrea!

I bought a book, The Toilet Trained Cat. We are using half alumimim roasting pans. You go thru a series of steps. Getting the cat use to using the pan and flushable litter. Moving the pan next to the toilet. Raising the pan up untill it's even with the top of the toilet. Set the pan on top of the closed toilet lid. Move the pan into the toilet bowl. Cut a little one by one inch square in the back of the pan. Start cut the hole across the back of the pan until you have a one inch strip across the back. Then start to cut away an inch at a time. When you're down to just an inch of pan get rid of the litter. Then get rid of the pan. Lots of hints and suggestions. So far so good. The kitties are learning slowly to put their paws on the seat as the box grows smaller.

One of the suggestions is too reenforce the pan with duct tape. Of course, you leave the seat down for the kitties. I lifted it up for clarity. :paw: I also keep clorex wipes on the back of the toilet tank. Until we get litter free ............

Thanks for the info Aundrea. I think I'll have to try something a bit stronger for my guys. They weigh 16 & 18 lbs. I read a few reviews on-line where folks said the duct tape doesn't work too well.

Aundrea, that is such a clever method, and so much more cost effective! Do you find when the cats step in the aluminum that it is sturdy enough they do not break through it? Did they at one point and realize that it won't hold them? That would be my only fear with this method, but I think I really want to try it.

Well my boys aren't quite six months old. So they are fairly light. I also duct taped the pans with 4 layers on the bottom and sides. Right now about half the bottom is gone and so far no accidents. Well except for the first night when my husband got up in the middle of the night..........
