It's Potty Time!


Yesterday I drove into Dallas, where I finally picked up Howie and Tucker. It was so exciting to see them again, I wasn't sure how they'd react. It's almost as if they remembered all of us, though. The reunion was so sweet; I was nervous about how the dogs and the two cats would react to one another. Maya's little tail just wouldn't stop wagging and the cats kept rubbing up against Maya and Chloe. Seeing as Chloe has always just kept her distance (she merely just puts up with the others), I was most concerned about her. She was such a good girl and didn't seem bothered to have them here again. It couldn't have worked out any better and I'm so happy to have the boys back. Ever since watching the movie, Meet the Parents, I've always thought it'd be cool to have a cat use the toilet. I mean, the litter box can really get stinky. Who needs that!?! So, I am going to try and toilet train Tuck and Howie; I couldn't do this with kittens as they could fall in, but now that they're grown I'm all for it. It'll take some time, maybe a month or so, but I think it'll be interesting to try this out. Wish me luck!

Good luck! Sounds like a pretty daunting task but it would be well worth the effort!

Keep me updated on how it goes! I've always wondered about it for my cats, I hate having a litter box but I'm getting the hidden litter box soon. If that drives me nuts I may just try to potty train them. Let me know how it goes!

You got guts, girl. I'd probably give up after a day or two. Its hard enough trying to train KIDS to use the toilet, and they actually understand it! lol

It's amazing the cats still remembered Chloe and Maya...goes to show pets are a lot smarter than we give them credit for. I really admire your kindness and willingness to take these animals in. I'd do it too, but my dogs aren't as ready to accept others as yours are. You're very fortunate! Keep us posted!

It shows how smart animals really are that they remembered one another. What a mom you are! Good luck and let us know how it goes!
