So, it is a professional training product developed with the following three key objectives:
The Litter Kwitter Includes:
A universal base plate (a special kind of toilet seat that fits all standard toilets), the three training disks (red, amber and green), a comprehensive instruction booklet plus a 30-minute DVD with step-by-step training directions you can see. And it comes with audio in English and French with subtitles in English, Japanese, French, German, Dutch, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Hungarian, Chinese and Thai for all my cosmopolitan friends!
Also available: MultiKatKit. This consists of additional training discs that smooth out the transitions from Red... to Amber... to Green... to removing the LITTER KWITTER altogether. These help slower learners keep up with the faster ones and can help more nervous felines overcome their fears.
How long will it take to train my cat?:
This will depend on a number of factors like your cat's age, temperament, sense of adventure and intelligence. I learned pretty quickly in about two weeks, but then I'm Doogie and my mum invented the Litter Kwitter (and we both lived in the bathroom for a fortnight!). However, most cats figure it out in about 8 weeks or so, as long as you are patient and understanding. If your cat is older (above 8 years) or not litter trained, though, it will probably take a bit longer. They have more bad habits to un-learn. Our oldest successfully trained cat so far is Oscar who started when he was 12 years old! And that's not to mention Lucky the 3-legged cat who overcame some obvious issues to become a Litter Kwitter graduate!
Directions for Use:
Make sure to take away all of the other litter trays from the house. Cats are smart (geniuses, in fact) but are also creatures of habit so you need to make the Litter Kwitter is the only option around. Show your cat where it is and help them up onto the seat so that they know it is safe. Keep the Litter Kwitter disk really clean so it is always ready to go when they are, but don't use an ammonia-based cleaner because that can make it smell like urine to a cat's exceptionally sensitive nose. Litter Kwitter starts next to the toilet with a seat device and a red plastic disk full of litter so your cat knows what it is & where to go to use it. Then you put it on the porcelain rim of the toilet, so your cat learns to hop up. Once your cat gets the idea that the toilet is where the action is, you can move to the amber disk. It has a hole in the middle and room for some litter around the edges so that your cat can use it but also starts to learn how to perch on the edge of the seat itself. It doesn't usually take too long to get the hang of this so then it's time to use the green disk. It has a bigger hole so that your cat can balance on the seat and go, knowing that everything will end up in the toilet. Brilliant!!!
