How to train cats to use the toilet

       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.

What are the reasons why cats don’t use litter pots

       Cat litter basin is an essential daily necessities in cat daily necessities. Many cats can use it easily, but many cats don’t like litter basin. There are many reasons for this. Don’t blame cats for disobedience and not using litter basin. It is likely that cats are in physical condition or are not adapted to it. The owner should find out the reason and solve it in time.

       I don’t like cat litter

       Although cats often pull their stools out of the litter basin, they still pee in the litter basin, which is probably because cats don’t like the litter you give them now. It takes less time to urinate, but it will take longer to defecate. They don’t want to let their feet step on the disgusting litter, so they prefer to solve the defecation problem outside the litter basin and protest to you.


       The cat is a kind of animal that pays great attention to its own feelings. The cat litter basin with a cover increases the difficulty for the cat to get in and out, so many cats choose to give up using the litter basin. For kittens aged 3-4 months, even if you do not use a litter basin with a cover, you should also pay attention to whether the height of the outer edge of the litter basin is appropriate. It is difficult for kittens to accept a litter basin with too high outer edge.

       If you want your cat to use the litter basin, you need to know what kind of litter and litter basin your cat likes. When you replace the litter and litter basin, you need to familiarize your cat with the environment of the new litter basin. For the first week, you can put them in the litter pan every day after they get up and finish eating. Once you use a new litter pan, they won’t be defecating anywhere else.

       3. Cats may not feel well if they don’t use litter basins

       The most common reason why cats don’t use litter pots is that they have problems with their physical conditions, such as urinary tract or bladder infection, intestinal parasites, injuries, etc. these diseases can cause cats to feel pain when defecating. Therefore, cats naturally associate the litter basin with pain, so they will find other places to defecate more comfortable.

       Although it can’t solve the pain for a cat to defecate in other places, it’s a very useful signal for the owner. Once you find that the cat is no longer using the litter basin, you’d better contact the veterinarian and give the cat a comprehensive physical examination. If the cat doesn’t use the litter basin or defecate, the owner must take them to the pet hospital immediately, because if the cat can’t defecate normally for more than two days, they may die of acute renal failure.

       Of course, cats do not use litter basin is not necessarily caused by their own diseases, improper litter, litter basin is too small or dirty may cause dissatisfaction, and then they will defecate in other places to protest to their owners. However, as long as the cat does not use the litter basin, the owner should find out the real reason behind it as soon as possible, so as to avoid the cat’s death due to acute renal failure.

       Cats are very clean animals. They usually take the initiative to use the litter basin. When your cat refuses to use the litter basin, you must understand the situation and decide according to the cat’s situation, so as to solve the fundamental problem.

What are the factors that affect cats going to the toilet

       Unlike dogs, cats defecate at will. Need to prepare for its cat litter, cat litter basin to let them better excretion. However, it does not mean that as long as you prepare these things, you can rest assured. Many factors will also affect the toilet condition of cats.

       Eat, drink and Lazar, two of the four events are about litter pots, so we can’t underestimate it.

       1. Choose the right litter for your cat

       Corn cob, corn cob, newspaper and so on are very popular. The specific use of litter is not what we call has the final say, or the state of cats after using them. What should be paid attention to is that it is better not to choose the fragrance. Scented cat litter is purely to meet some of our needs. Cats are also more sensitive to smell. Too strong smell may have a certain impact on their respiratory system

       2. Clean the litter regularly

       The excreta of cats is heavier than that of dogs, and cats are clean animals. If you don’t clean the litter for a long time, there will certainly be a big smell in the litter basin. Then the cat will certainly reject this excretion place, which will also cause the problem that the cat is not willing to excrete in the litter basin.

       3. Pay attention to the location of cat litter basin

       It is also a common mistake that the location of the litter basin is not hidden enough. When cats excrete, they certainly don’t want to be interfered by the outside world. If the noise is always emitted from the position where the cat is excreting, it will also cause the problem that the cat does not excrete. Try to keep the cat litter basin away from the TV, washing machine and other appliances that make loud noise.

       Keep away from people. If you have children or dogs in your house, the sand basin should be in the place where they can’t break in at will, but your cat can go in and out at will; it can’t be too remote.

       4. Choose a suitable litter Basin

       Size: the size of the litter basin should be appropriate, not too small. It is best for the cat to turn easily in the litter basin.

       The open type is better for most users.

       5. If there are more cats, you can prepare two litter basins

       If you have more than one cat in your family, the best thing to do is to prepare two litter basins. Don’t let all cats share one litter basin. Some cats may not like sharing a litter basin with other cats. They may not like the smell left by other cats.

       If the cat suddenly starts to pull around (of course, if there are no new changes at home, such as entering a new cat, moving house, changing cat litter, etc.), it is better to send the cat to the hospital for examination. Because the cat may not be able to hold back the excretion due to physical discomfort, after eliminating the physical problems, we should consider which aspects did not do well to cause this problem. Try not to choose paper litter, so cleaning up more troublesome, it is easy to stick on the cat litter basin, and the effect is not very good.

Healthy cats also wet their beds

       If cats don’t pee in the litter pan, they pee on your bed, which is absolutely maddening. If the cat is sick and causes disorderly urination, the owner can only cooperate with the veterinarian to treat the cat well, and this will not happen again. If a healthy cat can also wet the bed, you need to find out the real reason as soon as possible, otherwise the bed wetting incident will happen again and again.

       First of all, you can observe whether the cat is in estrus. Cats in estrus will spray urine to transmit information, especially male cats. They generally spray urine when they are in estrus, and their spray range is very wide. Furniture edge, room corner, sofa and bed may be their targets. Their purpose is only to make love to the nearby female cats.

       If your cat has been sterilized or is not in estrus at all, it is likely that they can’t stand the dirty litter basin to wet the bed. Cleaning the litter basin once a day can prevent the cat from urinating in your bed. In addition, some owners use litter basins with covers for their cats. However, not all cats can accept this kind of litter basin. Once they find it more difficult to get in and out of the litter basin than they think, they will directly ignore the existence of the litter basin.

       There are also cats who wet their beds to swear sovereignty. There are many owners who will sleep with the cat, which is nothing, but if one day a new member of the family – whether it is a cat or a dog, or even a human being – comes to the bed, the cat will leave smelly urine in order to swear sovereignty, and they will never give the new member a good look in their daily life.
