An Unusual and Unexpected Benefit for our Cats
One thing that may or may not be related is that, since I switched to giving structured water to our cats, there was a rapid cessation of peeing in inappropriate places outside the litter box. This had become a problem, and upon switching to structured water, quickly ceased to be an issue.
Interestingly, this includes our youngest cat apparently teaching himself to pee directly in the toilet, rather than using the litter box, which he is doing entirely on his own without any prompting from us.
I did show a video to Marek several months ago, which demonstrated how to train cats to use the toilet, but neither of us have implemented it in any way, with any of our three cats.
Miod seems to have made the decision from watching his big brother Bear, who has developed the habit of peeing into the top-hole litter boxes from above, and from watching us.
And, just maybe, he picked up on our desire for the cats to learn how, in order to ditch the litter boxes. We already know cats are psychic, as any long time cat aficionado can attest.
In any case, it’s pretty cool. 😉
Even better, the cats are calmer and happier overall, and fight less frequently than they used to. They have always been buddies, but boys will be boys, and since the switch to structured water, there are fewer scuffles and disagreements among them.
