Genevieve DavisDING! DING! DING! DING! We have a winner!

Congratulations, Genevieve Davis! You just won the Litter Kwitter Challenge!

Genevieve’s litter box horror story made me laugh and nearly cry at the thought of a closet full of six litter boxes. And the telling of the story, not just the story itself, is what makes this one a winner. See for yourself:

Litter boxes – I’ve got lots of them. So many in fact, that I turned my storage closet under my stairs into the cats’ own litter box room, complete with an air purifier. 7 cats = 5 to 6 litter boxes at all times. I’d be willing to give them their own guest bathroom if it meant no more litter boxes! My mother had a siamese before I was born that she trained to use the toilet. I remember as a little kid that we both shared the same bathroom. Nothing like walking in the bathroom and finding TupTim on the toilet! I thought it was the funniest thing ever. Now my worst nightmare is when I hear someone jump out of a litter box and open the door to discover they have flipped it over and pine pellets (and sometimes some poop) are scattered all over the floor. They sure now how to use the boxes (most of the time) but they don’t know how to clean up after themselves!

1 of Genevieve's 7 CatsTHE CHALLENGE IS ON!

You can follow our progress here each Tuesday starting October 26th as Genevieve and I toilet train our cats using the Litter Kwitter. We’ll share comical tales, photos and video as we race to the finish and see who’s cat succeeds first.

Don’t tell the cats it’s a race. All they need to see is patience, kindness and plenty of rewards. We aren’t pageant moms, after all.

Follow Genevieve at @thinktink or me at @KimClune on Twitter for team-training play-by-plays.

Genevieve’s winning response to the winning announcement:

Woooohoooo!  I can’t wait to tackle this project with the kids! I have a feeling you may find success before me but I’m up for the challenge. Thanks Kim!

Thank you, Genevieve! I look forward to it!


Thanks to Litter Kwitter and all the wonderful cat owners who entered for a chance to win. I truly empathize with every one of you. If you decide to toilet train your cats on your own, let me know how it goes!

Wish us luck!
