On this link, they talk about several methods, and some seem quite inexpensive. I've seen the 80$ kits and thought that its just ridiculous, but there are kits for $12, and some people fashion their own toilet inserts out of foil roasting pans for only a couple dolllars.
I wonder how early you can start it. The kittens obviously have to be able to get to the toilet...
I just read her "diary" that she kept while toilet-training her cats. wow, I was hooked and I read it all the way through also. But she kind of just disappeared, I'm curious to know what the current status is on her cats' toilet behavior.
It's no doubt a LONG commitment that requires a gigantic amount of patience, time and dedication. I think my cats are capable of it because they are still young and don't have a hard time adjusting to new surroundings. However, I don't have the patience and time to be constantly monitoring them.
Ashely45, if you decide to start on this, please let me know your progress, I would love to hear about it.
As for me, I'm still pondering it. But for now, I'm going to be moving their litter box into the restroom and switching them to flushable litter.
