    Rectangle - r/cats 2 days ago Posted by berrey7 Has anyone ever experienced a cat teaching itself to use the toilet? My cat pees in the toilet and dumps in the box. I keep the liter box super clean, and have tried multiple brands.

    We look at this picture, and we find ourselves both confused and impressed and grateful. If our cats would be able to learn something like this on their own, we would be the happiest humans alive. Like- this is such a weird thing to complain about. Like it's true, you'd walk into the bathroom and probably freak out over someone not flushing, but when you figure out that it's your cat… now, that's a friggin' miracle.

    Font - Claircashier 2 days ago Yes my Luna taught herself and now if we keep the lid closed she gets on it and complains. She likes to pee in the toilet but poop in her litter box. We think she taught herself after we moved to an apt where the bathroom was the only viable place to keep her litter box. Scared the heck out of us when we heard someone peeing at night and we both were in bed but it was just Luna. She doesn't flush though lol. Vet says Siamese cats can teach themselves these things a

    Why in the world would these people keep the lid closed?! Do they like digging through litter, looking for poops? Do they not see the amazing miracle that has happened in their home? Unbelievable. Keep it open, and if guests are coming, warn them that if the toilet is occupied, there's a small yet prominent chance of it being the cat in there.

    Rectangle - Educational Raise844 2 days ago my tabby boy does this. and the shower drain. but he's so precise, he puts his bum right next to the drain and does his business, no pee to be seen. we only know because he then proceeds to run across the house in panic and cry because he cannot cover his pee scent, until we "flush" by turning the faucet on for a few secs. ↑ 612 ↓ Reply

    Rectangle - TheKebby 2 days ago That is exactly what happened to my friend! Her cat started peeing in the toilet and my friend and her husband blamed each other for not flushing until they figured it was the cat. He also continued to poo in the litter box and was generally a super smart cat. 1.1K Reply

    Font - itsawildellie 2 days ago Maybe the cat saw a human do it and also smelled traces of it in that spot and put two and two together? They're obviously not as smart as primates, but sometimes some cats have quite bright moments. 4 д 3K Reply berrey7 2 days ago The cat is super smart. It can shake, high five, and a couple of other trick, so maybe she's just unique. 2.5K Reply

    Rectangle - TheCityGirl. 2 days ago Yep! My orange cat (an Abyssinian mix) also figured it out all on his own. I was at home alone one time when I heard the distinctive noise of a stream hitting the toilet bowl, and was momentarily freaked out - until I came upon this! Some cats are just smart that way 4187 Reply
