Trimoon - a bell? why does that work?


CJ - Yea, I can tell he is bored. I will try letting him in the garage but I guess my fear is he will start to potty out there because it is away from his "living" environment.

How about supervised potty breaks outside in the back yard -- like a dog? One or two a day might be enough if done when he's refusing the litter box and obviously ready to go. Put him on a collar and leash, or just be very quick at grabbing him when it's time to go in. Do you have a block or slat-fenced yard, or does he have a thousand ways to escape?

We tried the collar and leash on Tiger when he was younger. He went where HE wanted to go-period. We wound up doing some outside supervising.

Tiger is now almost 16 so he's slowed down a little bit. When we're outside we take Tiger with us to give him a little outside break. He almost always winds up back in the garage under one of the cars.

Sunny, my young male cat, likes to go along with me and my dogs on walks around the greenbelt behind our home. He loves to lie down on the walk, then dash like mad to get ahead of us, hide in the bushes and then swoop down on the dogs, etc. He stays with us and will hide in the bushes if a strange dog or too many people come around. Sometimes he'll come into the house when we're done, and sometimes I've got to bring him in.
