I need HELP!!! I'm toilet training (yes, actually toilet training- not litter box) my two cats and everything was going wonderfully until a week ago. I read Paul Kunkel's book "How to Toilet Train Your Cat" and followed all of his instructions to the letter. My cats will pee on the toilet, but for some reason they are now pooping on the floor. The book never addresses that issue. They will poop on the toilet if I have a sheet of plastic wrap with kitty litter on it stretched over the bowl of the toilet with the seat down, but the minute I cut a hole in the plastic wrap (as is necessary to complete the training) they go back to using the floor. But they have been consistently peeing on the toilet. I don't know what to do. I'm at my wits' end. They have been shut in the bathroom (with food and water) for four days now and no change in behavior. I'd hate to reintroduce the litter box because they have been so successful otherwise. Has anyone else experienced this problem? Any hints? I desperately need help.
