Here we are at my joshed about 10 weeks and guess what, we are toilet trained! Surprised? Don’t be. I lied.

Going back a step has really helped Knyckles feel more comfortable with the toilet again. She was getting to where she didn’t even want to go near it. She is peeing in it regularly without needed assistance but she’s still pooping on the floor. She does try her hardest to cover it with our tile floor though.

At times I feel like I’m beating a dead horse (Good lord, that’s an awful saying. Who started that and why am I endorsing it?) but I’m not ready to throw in the towel yet (Towel? I’m not using a towel. What’s with all of the clichés today?). Remember a few weeks ago when I said that perhaps she’ll get comfortable using the toilet and correct herself? That’s what I’m hoping for again. She gets her wet food when she pees in the toilet and if she ever poops in it again I’ll probably throw her a parade. The dry treats stopped being encouraging a couple of weeks ago. Occasionally I can get her to sit on the box for a treat, but instead of staying on the box and contemplating the toilet like I desire she takes it into her mouth and eats it elsewhere – fail. She’s also learned that even if she pees just the tiniest of bits she gets some delicious wet food; therefore we are peeing several times a day. Smart cat. Frustrated human.

Perhaps we are at a stalemate. I am still hopeful. We’ll see.
