The Next Big Step

So - It's been a little over a month since we put the litter pan inside the toilet. Things have worked out very smoothly, considering Chris or I clean it EVERY time they decide to use it. It's been a lot of work, but if all goes well it will be very worth it.

Some good news is that Rex has decided to start standing only on the toilet rim while the litter pan is still in the toilet! This means he's already getting comfortable using the toilet in this correct position. Hooray!!

Pascha is a little stubborn, and we'll have to watch her more closely during this next step.

Today is the day we cut the first hole into the litter pan. Since we doubled up, we cut a larger hole in the top pan, and a smaller hole in the bottom.

Here's the top pan. I duck taped the sides to protect them and keep them from making the hole larger by stepping on it.Here's the whole thing as of today.

I'll be posting again very soon to let you know how they react to this change.

  1. OMG, look at the tiny hole!! Awesome! What's underneath it? I guess just the water? So I'm guessing this stuff if flushable. Duh, it's that swheat scoop, isn't it? I'm so proud of you guys for cleaning it out every time they go!! My mom does that. She even has a "dehydrator" chamber to dry out the poop. Ok, let's not get into that! :)
    Jef and I aren't as good with keeping up with the poop. It never ends, tehehehe.
