Hello all, and sending every good wish to you.

Now, I've sort of got used to seeing empty shelves ( no fresh chicken, mince etc, God knows what people are doing with it all confused) and still cross about people buying more than they need angry)

But I was a bit shock to go into the supermarket today and find NO CAT LITTER!

Do you think that those who might not be able to find toilet rolls are possibly.............?

Oh phoenix you’ve caught me out blush. I didn’t think anyone would notice. By he way do you have any spare cat food? Meow 😸

Oh phoenix that post could only have come from you. I've often thought that training your cat to use the lavatory is a good idea..........
But are you really suggesting........?

Oh bum, I'm becoming predictable!

GrannyLaine there are loads of videos on YouTube showing how to train your cat to use the loo/toilet/lavatory (take your pick, some day it's class based confused)

However, I've not seen any about humans using a litter tray..........Not that I've looked, and definitely would want to!

Just had to reply to that Phoenix.
Made me laugh so much!

Needed a good laugh and this is certainly doing the trick!

Phoenix, thanks for the laugh.
Keep on bringing them

phoenix our cat is 15 and goes outside. My daughter has a beautiful Bengal girl who I think could have been lavatory trained quite successfully, though I have to say she does tend to use random acts of toilet misbehaviour when she is aggrieved about something. I secretly admire the mayhem she causes.

Thanks for the responses!

We have 2 cats, Oliver Sprout and Minnie (long time members, note not "old", may remember our other mogs, and my ramblings about them, Maurice, Digby, Clucky and Lily, all deceased and missed sad)

Oliver Sprout is on the whole a fairly well behaved chap, but Minnie will go out then come back in and head straight for the potty litter tray!

I could throttle the little baggage darling!

They make me laugh so vexed when they come running in to use the litter tray and dash straight back out again
