I don’t know how the cats at home usually go to the toilet. Not all cats will find the toilet themselves without training. There must be many cats urinating at home, which makes the house stinky. The owners hate to gnash their teeth every time, but they can only do nothing to clean up the excrement and urine. As a result, for the cats who do not change after repeated education, the master will continue to do so You can only lock it up and let it out for a while after the cat has cleaned the poop.
It’s time to train a cat to go to the toilet from the first day it steps on the door. Early training is good. Cat toilets should be set up in corridor corners and balconies where cats can freely enter and exit. Cats who are not used to the new house will fidget when they feel like defecating. This is a good time to train to go to the toilet.
1¡¢ Toilet for training cats
Cats are very smart animals. Cats like to clean themselves and excrete in fixed places. It is very easy to train cats to use toilets. If the toilet in your home is a squatting toilet, you just need to remove the litter pan and tie the cat to the side of the squatting toilet. You can teach your cat to excrete in the squatting toilet in two or three days. The kittens who have just arrived at home for 3 or 4 months should pay attention to their excretion behavior, and they can do so almost once. If it is a toilet, the training time is a little longer. At first, the cat litter basin can be gradually moved to the toilet, and then placed in the toilet, must be placed stably. Gradually reduce the amount of sand every day, and finally remove the litter basin. The whole training process lasts about half a month. After training successfully, you will feel that kind of relieved excitement.
However, if you put the cat in the prepared special toilet at the beginning, it may climb out (repeat several times). The owner should not be discouraged, just whisper to it: “the toilet is here”, and then repeat it several times. Put the sand and tissue with cat excrement smell into the toilet, so that the cat can feel at ease when it smells its own smell. When the cat is finished, don’t forget to praise it for “doing well”. As long as this repetition training will be very effective, even some cats will specially run back to the toilet outside.
2¡¢ Use of cat litter Basin
Generally speaking, cats have the nature of burying their own feces. Most cats instinctively find the litter basin (or sand, soil, ashes, etc.) to defecate in the sand basin and bury the poop after defecation. Some cats learn how to use litter when they follow their mothers when they are young. Because the newborn cats don’t defecate on their own, they rely on their mothers to lick the excrement out with their tongues. Therefore, the kittens who left their mothers long ago may not use the litter. At this time, it is up to the cat parents to teach the kittens how to use the litter basin.
If the cat is excreting in a place where it should not be excreted, the owner should use toilet paper to take the excreta into the litter basin (if it is urine, suck urine into the toilet paper and put it into the sand basin), hold the cat in the sand basin, let it smell its own excreta, and grab the cat’s paw to scratch the litter to cover the discharge. Don’t scold cats. Cats are rebellious animals. They may have rebellious psychology. Instead, they should praise them gently when they teach them to bury sand. If they do well, they should be rewarded appropriately. Remember, cats are animals that remember to eat or not to beat, so when cats do well, they must be given appropriate rewards. After a few repetitions, the cat will learn to use the litter basin.
In addition, the place where the cat defecates must be cleaned up, thoroughly cleaned with detergent or 84 disinfectant, and must not leave any smell, otherwise the cat will excrete in the smelly place again according to the smell.
3¡¢ So how long will it take to train well?
This is mainly about watching cats. It is basically not controlled by the cat’s parents. It is said that some cats can take less than three weeks, while others take three or four months. Generally speaking, it takes three or four weeks. At the same time, if there is more than one cat training, the slowest one.
If there is an accident (the cat randomly urinates), don’t give up easily, insist and have confidence. Don’t punish the cat. Don’t force it. It does well to encourage it, reward it (spirit and material).
Cats that are easy to train like to please their owners. They are brave and adaptable. If a cat is a maverick and very independent, you know you want him to use the toilet (as cats all know), but if you don’t, it’s very difficult to train. Cleverness is an independent cat. If the cat is timid and cautious, it will resist using the toilet for fear of falling down. If the cat’s adaptability is poor, a small change will make him uneasy, then it will take a long time for him to accept.
