cats can be trained to use the toilet. not too shabby.

my aunt had a cat that would answer to its name, fetch, answer the doorbell, and use the toilet.

supposedly, you can train a cat to use a faucet for water too. i guess its a problem if they forget to turn it off, or use the hot one...

My wife bought this (maybe not exactly this but the same shape and the same purpose) several years ago but never used it because it didn't fit our toilet seat.

BTW I've seen a homepage of a person who successfully trained her cats to use human toilet, but her method was kinda vice versa - she put an old toilet seat over the litter box.

The Bumper Dumper <<What I wanna know is if THIS works? I just found this last night.

As far as the cat trainer, my wife did it without buying this one, so I know it works. She used plastic wrap to cover the bowl (not the seat) and filled with kitty litter, till cat was used to it.

Of course, my wife trained our two beagles to use the kitty-litter box. Go figure?

some people take away their claws...

in the summertime, they're dying to go out and get the tweety bird, but we keep them kooped in, prisoner, peering through a window...

they hide in a room and instinctively pounce on us when we walk in, but all we can do is say go away I don't want to play with you...

...and now were taking away their burying instinct for poop convenience?

***

As for me, I need full access to the throne at a moment's notice and will be in there posting on head-fi, as I'm doing now

Yes, that would be one of the reasons to get this device.

Cat feces are often contaminated with toxoplasma gondii (toxoplasmosis) which has been linked to schizophrenia and manic depression. It's also a real risk to pregnant women, as it can cause brain damage to a developing fetus. That's why they suggest pregnant women not go near cat litterboxes.

The cats try to bury it an go with there paws trough the water afterwards. And walk over the seat when they're done leaving the dirty water on the seat.
So the cats going to the toilet is discouraged in her house.
