Whisker Wednesday #1

Welcome to the first Whisker Wednesday.

So this post was inspired by the one and only, Bruce.

If you know me, you know that my boyfriend and I have a tuxedo cat named Bruce. We rescued him right before Thanksgiving in 2013 from a local rescue here in Colorado.  He was the only one left of his litter and looked very lonely. So before we go on, here is a couple of pictures of when we first got the little guy!

 


Bruce is no ordinary cat. He loves, and I mean loves, to play fetch. His favorite toys so far are hair ties, headbands, and twisty ties <--by far his favorite. Another thing that makes him extraordinary is if you cant find him anywhere, all you have to do is open the freezer. He LOVES waiting for an ice cube to accidentally drop so that he can either play with it or wait for it to melt so that he can lick it up. He also meows...A LOT. I think he gets really lonely when we are not around but as soon as we come home, the meowing flood gate opens. Even though hes a little more dog than cat, we still love the little guy.

Everyone knows that there is something that comes with every cat...and that is litter. Stinky litter. So after doing some research (and a little coercive talk from a former coworker) I decided to toilet train Bruce. I know what you're thinking, it's not going to work! BUT IT HAS BEEN! If you haven't heard about this I am using this product: CitiKitty. You can find some information and reviews here or here.

 I started this about 3 weeks ago. I first changed the litter box to flush-able litter to get his used to the new stuff. Then a week after I did that, I took the littler box out of the bathroom and put the training tool on the toilet. Then a week after that, I cut the first hole out. So that's where we are at right now! Let me also say this, you NEED to have another bathroom to do this. Cats like to dig into little to clean up after themselves...and that doesn't stop once you start to do toilet train them! Here is a before (cleaned bathroom) picture and an after:

So there you have it. The first Whisker Wednesday. I will update you on the progress on the next Whisker Wednesday.

Have a great day loves!
