So both of my kitties have respiratory issues. One also has a lot of sensitivities to food, dyes, etc. Lately she's been grooming bald patches due to a reaction and I can't figure out what she's reacting to. I'm beginning to suspect it's the litter, even though it's unscented and low dust. She gets itchy after using the box. So I'm trying to wean them off the box and train them to use the toilet!


I bought the Litter Kwitter kit and I started them on it today. Luckily their box is already right next to the toilet, so I went ahead and put the LK seat on the toilet and showed them both where it was, dug with their paws, etc. They seem intrigued, luckily, and not scared to be up there at all.

Here's the problem - My little tuxedo girl, Chloe, doesn't tend to squat very low when she uses the box, esp when peeing. I was elated that she used the LK within the first hour of me putting it on the toilet, but dismayed that she totally overshot the small litter area and peed on the seat and the floor.
I've tried "showing" her how to position herself by gently arranging her paws and pressing her bum lower, but she doesn't want me near her when she's "going" and I don't want to pressure her or turn her off of the LK.

Has anyone used Litter Kwitter? Any suggestions for how to get her to squat properly? Should I just give it time and hope that she adjusts her position? I really want this to work, since it would mean NO MORE LITTER BOX
and, most importantly, zero dust or allergens for my girls
. I'm totally willing to wait this out and put in the extra work to make it happen - if I have to clean overshot pee off the floor/seat a few times a day in return for an eventual freedom from litter, I'm willing to do so. It'll save me TONS of money in the long run, not to mention the saved time and effort of cleaning the box twice a day.

Any suggestions? Any overall tips for transitioning the girls to using the people toilet? Anyone used LK with success?



Thanks!

For anyone not familiar with Litter Kwitter, here's their site: http://www.litterkwitter.com/en/index.php

They claim that you can train any cat to use the toilet, litter free, in 8 weeks or less. I've read a lot of outside reviews and it seems like it DOES work for a lot of people. I'm really hoping it works for my girls - not having to deal with litter would be AMAZING!
