    Thumbs up Stories and threads beginners should read

    Most people/cats experience alot of the same problems and have alot of the same questions during training so I was thinking it might be a good idea to connect some of the important threads that people should read before they start or when they run into problems. I'll start with the ones I feel is important and might add some when I see anything important that I haven't added.

    Flushable litter:
    Choosing your flushable litter(There are some links in this thread that leads to other good threads about flushable litter):
    http://www.litterkwitter.com/forums/...ushable+litter

    Schedule:
    It's a good idea to keep a schedule of when your cat is using the toilet so that you can make sure they are healthy, know when they are holding it and what their normal rutine is as well as beeing able to be there when you know they need to go...You can also write down if there is any changes in the household or toilet and see if it affects your cat in any way...
    Here is a pic of our schedule:


    The cardboard method/cutting board method:
    Problems progressing trough the stages? Here is some helpful tips:

    Good idea!!! Hmmm, I only see one sticky here and it seems the moderator has made it. Not sure how to do it, but will try to figure out a way If you find out before I do, I would love to hear how it's done.

    Update: I have just sent a mail to the moderator, hopefully he/she might be able to help...
