I dont think your concerns are warranted with a 2 year old cat having issues getting out of a toilet bowl should she happen to fall in. she is able enough to get herself out.

is there anyone here that doesn't have a negative opinion on this? Beacuse I was asking for help training not for people to tell me this is wrong for a cat. there are many cats that have been trained to use a toilet and use it very well. there is no reason that anyone should not give it a shot .. its better hygienically for the cat, easier on the wallet and environment. Sorry to come off so strong here, im asking for help but the answers don't answer the question.

yes we do own but its in our strata bylaws (we agree is ridiculous). we are able to get litter up hell we've done it for the last 2 years.
I don't know of anybody on this forum that has their cat using the toilet, we offered other suggestions to help you out.

As for falling in the toilet, they go into a panic because they can't get a grip on the basin, it is so easy for them to pull a muscle or ligament, making it very painful for them to use the toilet when they have to pee again. This can result in them holding in their pee and crystals/stones to form. Even if they don't injure themselves it could cause a fear of the toilet.
