I've officially given up on toilet-training my cats. It turns out they're way more stubborn than I am. So I've been looking at new types of cat litter that will be less messy and stinky. So I bought this stuff made from wheat, and put a little in the cat box for them to get used to. I dump one cat in the box to smell it and get used to it. She's sniffing happily away, and then decides it might be good to taste it to see whether it's edible.
Gullible human that I am, I think she's just accidentally gotten some stuck on her nose and is cleaning it off. But no, she's trying to eat it. So I dragged her out of the box. I'm hoping that when it starts to take on the smell of the box, she won't be tempted to do that again.
