My little Cupcake started training on the LK shortly after she turned one. We started with the red disc in the place of her usual litter tray. Too easy, straight on with no accidents. After a few days when went straight to the red disc on the toilet and she had this mastered with wees and poos for about a week so we went onto the amber disc. This is where we ran into trouble. She weeed on the LK no worries but would poo on the floor where the tray used to be. After a few poo accidents I went back to the red disc on the toilet and she was fine, weeing and pooing. So I left it alittle longer this time, close to three weeks, after which I was confident she had it mastered. But no. She was fine with weeing on the amber but would get anxious, and have now learnt would do the dancey thing, she would meow to let us know she needed to go and I was able to put her on the LK where she would immediately poo straight down the hole. Yes, we were very excited and made a big oohhaa with lots of praise. However if we aren't around to catch her needing to go she'll just poop on the floor in the usual spot. I've sprayed this area with cat nip stuff, as well as cleaning it with bleach and wiping it over with bleach, but this hasn't worked yet. What else can I do? Or is just a matter of keep doing what we are doing and hope it clicks. I am willing to try anything else you can suggest.
