Your original cat is already trained, and it’s time to bring home Junior. What do you do? First, don’t panic. Your original feline is not going to forget how to use the toilet. So what can you expect?
1. Via observation, Junior will learn to use the toilet faster by watching Senior.
2. Your original cat may want to use Junior’s Mock Toilet (to establish territory and for the love of litter).
If you’re bothered by the trained cat wasting your litter, keep the Mock Toilet lid down when the new cat isn’t using it. This takes more monitoring, but if you’re lucky to have a communicating cat who meows before using the facilities, it isn’t difficult. If your cats are on regular bathroom schedules, it’s also easy. Some people even choose to add motion detector alarms, so they know when their cats are in the bathroom.
If you don’t mind your original cat using the Mock Toilet, you’re in for more cleaning, but your training should still be breezy as Senior teaches Junior how it all goes down!
