I’m taking a break from all this project management stuff to highlight major milestone at the 491. This week we started training the cats to use the toilet. I am simply done cleaning litter. Well…Almost done. I ordered this kit called CitiKitty – “The World Famous Cat Toilet Training Kit”. The kit retailed for about $29 on their web site so I figure if it doesn’t work it will be worth that much in entertainment value alone. However, I am optimistic it will be easier for me to teach cats to use the toilet than it was for my mother to teach me.
The first step is to get the cats used to using the bathroom so I moved their litter box in there. This phase will last about a week, then we start using the training inserts which will essentially turn the toilet into a litter box. I’m not really sure how this is going to work with Jackie and I also needing to use the facilities and having only one bathroom but I think it’s going to involve me removing the insert whenever either of us has to go.
So far the cats are complying with the change in routine without issue. Beta has always been really curious about the sink when I am brushing my teeth…perhaps I can teach him to wash his paws too?
