Jed KwitterThe fine folks at Litter Kwitter just offered a $59 system to potty train my cats, for free, eliminating the need for litter forever. Was I interested? And, if so, would I like to give one to you?

On behalf of myself (and you, if you’re chosen), I did my best to sound interested but professional, not too eager but willing to try. I wrote back, “Excuse my informality here but… OMG. I WANT ONE!”

It arrived yesterday.


Jackson KwitterTo start, remove all other litter boxes and fill Litter Kwitter’s special tray using the red insert next to the toilet. Once your cat is comfortable using the tray on the floor, it gets placed on the toilet seat. As the cat’s comfort increases, new inserts with larger holes and less litter (flushable, not clumping clay) are substituted until the cat has learned to balance and the entire training system can be removed.

This positive-experience training system was designed by husband and wife team Terry and Jo Lapidge (with inspiration from their cat Doogie). According to Jo Lapidge, co-creator and director of Litter Kwitter:

It may seem a little quirky at first but it really works and, with a little bit of patience, a cat can be trained to use a home toilet and you’ll never have to buy kitty litter again.

I couldn’t wait. I opened the box and we all had a look inside. I hope that Jed has more patience than I do. There’s no litter in there, dude!
