Kitty Toilet Training: I give up

For those of you that don't know, I was trying to train my cat, Alfred, how to use a human toilet. For more of the back story, Click Here.

Well, I've finally given poor Alfred his litter box back. I feel like a failure, but I think he's happier now, which is what is important. He was doing really well, until I had to start lessening the amount of litter in the bowl. This did not please him. He found that the laundry basket was much more to his liking, especially if there were clothes inside.

I tried watching him and working with him, but he likes his litter full. Now he's back to being a regular (albeit psycho) kitten. Maybe I'll try again when he is older, but for now, I'm gonna be scooping litter for the foreseeable future.


  1. Eee-eww! Yup. Time to abort the mission. The litter box is better than the laundry basket!!! You get a gold star for effort, though.

  2. Awww, that's a bummer he didn't take to the toilet! And ew to him getting confused and using the laundry basket!!

  3. My friend invested in one of those automated litter boxes that scoops right after the cat has been in ... and puts it into a disposable container that you simply remove and replace every few days or whatever. Maybe not as environmentally friendly as scooping yourself but works if you don't like scooping.
