Moving on to stage II
Well, I have an update. I moved on to stage two (the amber stage).
After viewing the video, again, I determined the goals of stage I:
1) getting the cat accustomed to going into the bathroom to toilet (that was the location of Star's old litter box) and
2) get them accustomed to jumping up on the toilet.
These two goals being accomplished, I moved on to Stage II (and after a couple more incidents of urine on the floor). I used an enzyme product (Kids n Animals....or something like that) that rid of any stench quite well.
So, I'll keep you posted as to how she adapts to stage II. She will no longer be able to stand in the center and make her aim towards the perimeter, therfore, I'm hopeful the waste will fall into the toilet. She is quite curious as to what that hole is and what is down there.
As I don't have children, I can only assume that once a child is potty trained, one feels quite a sense of relief. I'm looking forward to that stage and when I'm feeling discouraged I think of what it will be like to have a cat that uses the toilet.
Apparently, there are breeders that are training their kittens to use the toilet - I think it is the CityKitty. Interesting. AND, people are lining up to purchase a cat that has been toilet trained!
