Post Toilet Training Kitty

First off many thanks to everyone's Support and big hug's to LuckyRescue* for getting me my little bundle of joy..

(There's a thread on this but not as detailed as this will be)

I got the idea after seeing Animal Planet about a year ago..
after seeing a cat using a toilet i taught it was funny and what a clever cat..
after surfing the net for a new toy for my kitty i noticed some item to "aid" in toilet training your cat..so i started to do some research on the net and found out that many people do toilet train their cat's..well this is my first cat so it's all new to me!... people say it's going to take anywhere from 2 weeks to 3 month's all depends on the learning curve of your feline..

After thinking about it .. there's only good that will come from this
like WAY less smell too NO more having to buy kitty litter..
having to buy no more kitty litter say's it all!

Well here's my Little Quest to toilet train little Trixy!
Thing's i need..
1 - Cat (checked)
2 - Toilet (checked)
3 - Strong cardboard or Aluminium tray to support the weight of Kitty Litter cat (checked)

Trixy is 4 months 16 days old and already a big kitty cat..
whenever Trixy get's tired from playing and doing like insane lap's around the apartment she goes into the toilet to cool down on the tiled floor..which is good, also she likes to jump into the bath tub. again a plus..meaning she's not afriad of the toilet..

I picked up my cat and put her on top of the toilet with the seat down and then flushed the toilet.. she looks as the water goes away. she's not afriad and her she's not stressed still in "Play Mode"..

I am taking this slowly i'll keep posting to this thread letting you guy's know how's it going.. and what progress we've made..
as for Trixy at the moment ..here's a snapshot..

IF you want to do this, make sure you find out exactly how to do it, and do it very VERY slowly and with the utmost gentleness. You don't want to ever stress a cat over litterbox issues!!

It certainly would be wonderful to have cats who use the toilet. I would love that, but since mine are all feral and ex-feral, I"m just lucky they use the litterbox!

Can they be trained to flush also? THAT would make it perfect!!! Many households have dogs too and a poluted water bowl wouldn't be a good thing!

Thumbs up patients is the key :)

LR you're always right and if my precious get's nervous or shows any sign of stressed i'll ditch this idea lol... gosh i love her so much!
but for now going slowwww slower than a snail..i think only if you've a few months home bound then it's worth trying.. that and a smart cat..and the most patient guy..
