misha the cat

While there are many books and articles depicting toilet training techniques for cats, not
all of the information provided can work out. There are several things that will depend on
your cat and his/her personality. Teaching your cat how to use the toilet involves operant
conditioning. In this case, the cat's owner started off her program by removing the cat's
litter box and placing it in the restroom next to the toilet, making sure her pet knew
where it would be at. This is called shaping. Afterwards, the owner gradually started
stacking things up beneath the litter box, so it became elevated, until it reached the
height of the toilet seat itself. She did this slowly, however, realizing that her cat
would need time to get accostumed to the adjustments. This is called successive
approximations. When the cat was pretty used to the way things were, her owner once again
changed the position of the litter box; this time installing it inside the toilet bowl but
replacing the actual box with a metal mixing bowl. She removed the stacked books
underneath the litter box and tried to catch her cat using the toilet as much as possible,
teaching it the proper squatting posture. What is important, let your cat know when things
are being done correctly; applaude him/her on reward her with a treat, this will make the
cat repeat whatever it is it has done. By doing this things you encourage the cat to keep
on using the toilet; this is an example of positive reinforcement.
