Whisker Wednesday #2

Wahoo, we've made it to another Whisker Wednesday. So a photo of the little guy to get started.

I may have caught him relaxing just a little bit too much :)
So if you read my last post, you know that I am trying to toilet train Bruce. And we, unfortunately, had a set back this last weekend. Bruce has a black blanket that he loves laying on and relaxing on. So we always keep this blanket in the bathroom for night time when he goes to bed as well keeping it with him when we board him at The Happy Cat Retreat. Last Saturday I decided it was time to give it a good old wash, Bruce was in there...PEEING ON IT! Gahhhhh all of my (his? ours?) hard work!

What I am thinking is that he was mad at me for removing another ring on the device on Friday that he decided that the blanket was the best place to do his business. So I washed it and kept it out of the bathroom and just put this dollar pet bed in there instead, thinking he wouldn't pee on it. Well I was wrong! I caught him, again! So all things somewhat soft have been removed from the bathroom. Now, I put him in the bathroom at least twice a day and he does his business. Then right after them I give him a lot of praise and some tuna treats. He LOVES those treats.

 So I am hoping that this has fixed "his issue". I am thinking that instead of taking out another ring on Friday, I will just keep it the way it is. He is going to the Happy Cat Retreat again this weekend as Bill's parents are coming to town, but hopefully he doesn't forget his training...I'll let you know how it goes!

I cant lie though, he is such a cutie:

Have an amazing hump day!
