Seven reasons not to train your cat to use a human toilet (and Jackson Galaxy doesn’t like it either) — 2 Comments

  1. I was particularly struck by the notion that to make a deal about what cats might deposit in the waste water system be concerning, especially by contrast and in comparison to the astronomical, vast tonnage and variety by the minute of what we humans do is laughably insignificant. People shouldn’t be fooled and swayed by that kind of non-issue that only serves to make cat haters happy. I agree with most of the rest of it though. Bottom line it’s not better or even practical compared to litter box usage. Most cats can’t use the toilet and since that fateful day one of my cats took an accidental dive into it while I was taking a pee I’ve been very careful to keep the lid down and block access. Here’s one instance though where I experimented with the idea because this cat (Einstein) wouldn’t use the litter box, only the bathtub. As you can see I placed a toddler size insert to help him but he only stuck his head in it and studied it for days.

    • I agree with you as usual. Personally, I am not against cats using a human toilet but I don’t really think it is viable except in rare cases. And it is too much about what people want and not about what is good for the cat.
