Evolution ... Or Just My Strange Cat?

One of the kittens did something odd this morning. She's trying to act like a person, by going number 1 in the toilet.

Only if we leave the seats up. If we leave them down, she eyes the sinks in the bathroom. (Needless to say, while I was home sick from work yesterday I mustered enough strength to clean the bathrooms. It was good for the sinuses.)

Don't know if this is normal behavior or not, but the seats will remain up for the time being. I keep thinking of Robert DeNiro in Meet The Parents and his training their cat to use the toilet. Wonder if it's catching and the other kitten will start to act human as well?

I've had cats that use the loo. Far easier than cleaning a litter box.

I had one that couldn't get the hang of it because he was imprinted on the litter. As long as I left a little bit of litter on the toilet seat, he'd sometimes use the litter box. My roommate objected to this, though.

Basil, my current cat, either goes outside, or wees in the bathroom sink. We got him as a stray so didn't have the joy of teaching him as a kitten. Habits are hard to break in a cat.

I don't mint (too much) that he does his number ones in the sink, because he will only do it if I'm standing there to "flush" for him.

D'oh! I meant:

... as long as I left some litter on the toilet seat, he'd use the loo.

You knew what I meant.

No worries. I thought that's what you meant.

What's amused me about her when she used the sink was how she clawed at the porcelain, trying to bury it. Loo is much more preferable to sink, though, because we won't always be around to run the water afterward. Habits, as you say, are hard to break.
