I want to teach my cat to use a human toilet.

Currently he uses the toilet to urinate without any problem, but he does not like to poop there. I do not understand why. He sniffs, goes around several times and then sits to poop on the floor right near the toilet. If I put a litter box on the toilet, then the cat uses the litter box without any hesitation.

Does anyone know the reason for such behavior? Any suggestions how to train the cat next?


  • My guess is since pooping requires more strain, he doesn't feel as comfortable with the balance. Perhaps a more secure "launchpad" might help. – Oldcat Jan 5 '16 at 22:54
  • @Zaralynda, yep, thanks, situation is similar. – Gino Pane Jan 6 '16 at 7:49
