    Default cat no longer poops on floor since doing this!!!!

    i put bins (cookie sheets can work as well) of water where he likes to go and watch him when he starts looking for a place to go.in our case, he wanders around and wont hop on your lap. when he does this, we leave him in the bathroom with the door close and listen for him to meow. it can take him a while since he hates pooping in the toilet. heres the kicker: when he poops in the toilet, RIGHT AWAY we give him wet food, because all he normally eats is dry floor. the trick is to make him think there is something in it for him. he has had great success so far but the last step is for him to wander into the bathroom on his own and go.

    the secrets to this method are:

    make the toilet his only option

    keep it immaculate

    praise and treat IMMEDIATELY when he goes

    watch him like a hawk when its time to go

    know his cues

    have an idea of when he will go

    you can gradually take up the bins when he prefers the toilet.

    I also give wet food as reward since my cats only eat dry food and they love it I know many cats also poop on the floor because they are constipated so they shouldn't really eat too much dry food, but for me I can't afford only wet food or raw feeding. Giving grain free dry food and canned pumpkin mixed in the food is a good idea to use if your cat is constipated

    Many good tips here, keep it up
