Tinkle, tinkle, little star

Yaaay! le chat peed in the new setup today. she poo'd on the mat in front of the shower a few days ago, and I think it might have been because the setup was a little dirty. I cleaned it out and modified it a little, and voila! Most of it tinkled right into the water, which was nice to hear. Hopefully she will poo in it too. We are getting ready for our cross-country road trip. We leave a week from today. I am taking a litter box in the car. Hopefully she will go back to her toilet training when we arrive to our new home!

traumatic event?

damn! le chat was in using the toilet, and i couldn't stop myself from peeking in on her. as soon as she saw me, she jumped down...there was a turd in the water! I didn't want her to stop, so i put her back on the toilet, but she didn't want to be put on the toilet, and in her effort to balance herself or whatever, her tail got wet. I held her on the toilet in correct position while drying her tail with toilet paper. Then i closed the door of the bathroom in hopes that she "finishes" in privacy. I'm waiting right now.... I hope I didn't traumatize her too much so that she will avoid the toilet even more than she already does! She peed in it last night... she always aims for the litter instead of the water. How am I supposed to get her to aim for the water by being in correct position if she won't allow me to be in there with her to correct her!>!!?!??!

I think i've accidentally successfully trained le chat to go outside for poo and pee. She hasn't used the setup in.... i don't know how long. Since my last post I guess. She meows and whines to go outside everyday. So i guess she is going out there. I'm assuming it's under the deck (or in neighbors' yards - oops). Today I am not letting her out, but no indoor results yet either....

on the floor. near the toilet. she hasn't used the setup at all since I changed it. I'm guessing she's been going outside. tonight i came home to some turds on the floor. dang it! i re-directed. we'll see how it goes. I am getting close to giving up. Or just training her to always do it outside. that would be ok... i guess. damn.

more changes

Yesterday i moved the patch in the setup back another 3/4 inch or so....but i taped it at a weird angle, and once I put the litter dam in, it almost looks like it ended up being exactly the same size hole as before, just with a slightly different angle. Le Chat hasn't used it at all since the change, but she has been outside most of the day yesterday and today since it was so nice out... I am guessing she went outside at least once. I don't think she could not pee for that long. Unless if she used the setup and it went in the water. That would be cool, but I just really doubt that it happened that way.

le chat did a seriously large poo today. 3 large turds in the setup, 3 small "drips" on the toilet seat, and one medium turd on the floor. I don't know what she was thinking. She managed to get some of it on her hind leg and paw, so I had to give her a little bath in the sink. She was NOT happy about that, but at least her leg smells good again.

I had a long day at work yesterday, and when I got home, le chat was meowing like crazy. my roommate mentioned that she had been really whiny for the entire evening. her food bowl was empty, so i figured she was hungry... but then she ignored it when i gave her some food... UH OH! i ran down to the toilet to find a pee in the litter of the setup and a poo on the floor. she never goes pee and poo in the litter (it has to be cleaned first), and i guess she was trying to convince my roommate to do it earlier but finally gave up. I'm not too worried about it though. She was obviously upset about it. As soon as I cleaned everything up, she stopped meowing.
