    Default LK doesn't fit our toilet + other red stage probs

    Hi all,
    My story so far ...
    We have 2 cats and tried the LK.
    After a little hesitation on the floor in the red stage, although there were some extremely messy moments due to the cats being used to a covered box.
    We went to put the LK on the toilet and discovered that the toilet bowl is much much smaller than the LK. (LK should definately look at a wide range of loos before claiming a "fits all" design)
    The smaller cat was able to balance but this caused problems because one of the cats got scared by the instability of it. It seemed to have destroyed his confidence after it moved and nearly fell off when he jumped up on it.
    My partner tried to put scrunched up tissues round the rim to stop the LK seat from moving, but this didn't work. Eventually I decided to try to put bits of Blue Tak and stick it to the bowl. This worked quite well, but had to be careful cleaning it to prevent the litter crystals from making it losing stick. We have only one toilet in the home, so it is a bit of a pain removing LK and putting it back on everytime us humans need to go.
    The smaller cat was fine with this solution, but the bigger cat still refused to use it after his mishaps. Occasionally he would scratch around a bit but nothing else and it was clear he was nearly busting as he kept crying out aloud all night. The good news is that so far they have resisted going anywhere else but the LK.
    Eventually we solved his complex about the unstable seat by locking him in the toilet for extended periods. He finally got the confidence and he let go in a big way ...
    Looking forward to the Amber stage. Hopefully it is slightly less complicated and messy.
