I am about to embark on a project whose success is, at best, dubious. I am going to try to toilet train our cats. Seriously.
I'm not just doing this because I think it sounds fun (it doesn't) or that it would be cute (I'm not sure it is), but because I hate cleaning the litter and I hate the smell of amonia in the apartment. We'd recently switched to Yesterday's News litter, which does track a lot less than what we were previously using (Scoop Away). But it doesn't control odor nearly as well, and within a couple of days the inside of my nostrils are burning with the amonia in the air. I can't imagine that's healthy for any of us.
I recently stumbled upong this page describing how to toilet train your cat. She made it sound so easy, and to prove that it really worked, she has pictures. So I'm going to give it a shot too. She even suggests that the final step of removing the litter pan in the toilet be done when you can be home to be sure the cats really take to it, and I'm still at home during the day now, so this seems like the perfect time in our lives to give this a try.
To the extent that the cats will oblige, I will keep you updated with pictures in this photo album). Wish me luck!
