You’re worried because your cat doesn’t put her paws on the seat.
Take a deep breath, and let it go.
Owners who “assist” cats with paw placement unduly stress the animal.
You: “Let me just move your paw a little . . .”
Cat: “Don’t touch me! I’m peeing!”
You’re already encouraging your cat by crowding her with water containers, and she’s patiently putting up with it. Practice excellent loo etiquette by leaving the cat to her own paw placement. She’ll figure it out before Step 8.
