Ok so my friends and family have been treating me like I'm on the verge of complete insanity since i bought this product - three months ago now. For a 4 month old kitten i had just adopted. I have never owned a cat so that's all new too - but the breeder actually recommended i buy this product. It took a while to even get him on the toilet and then a lot of time on stage one as stage two (amber) left me cross eyed as he kept putting his head through the hole, it became really frustrating for both of us. So I ended up buying the training disks - it took a while in the post coming from overseas. HOWEVER - once i got him on amber training disk something clicked. He's been on them about 2 weeks now but this weekend we graduated to amber ... and this evening he poo-ed directly into the hole! He looks very comfortable and happy with the process now and I feel confident that we will actually get there. I've read lots of reviews saying that it does take a while and you have to spend time with your cat - understanding their toileting habits and 'being there for them' so to speak. Really good advice. But most importantly - really and truly - Keep it clean always. Like every day you need to clean it out - as in wash it thoroughly and remove all smell. Good product tho - it really is actually working - definitely give it a go!
Didn't send product
Same problem as Lynn below, paid and didn't receive products, after waiting a month i contacted paypal and reversed the charges. Pretty annoying experience all round. Don't recommend.
I have a 2 1/2 year old Burmese male. I trained him when he was about 1 and he took to the Litter Kwitter really well and was trained in about 4 weeks. He had the occasional accident after that but by about 6 months in he was fantastic and all we have to do is flush. While training I watched him closely and when he headed to the loo I got him a tiny treat and when he had finished gave it too him with loads of petting and praise. Any accidents I cleaned up and just ignored him. Good luck to all.

The product worked for me, but too longer than expected.
I have been able to train both my cats to use the toilet using this system. I found that there were big gaps between the levels, but I would just go back to the stage before and do it again.
Both my cats use the toilet thanks to this system.
Paid and not recieved
I paid and have not recieved. There is no phone number. They will not return my emails asking where my goods are.
Is this a dodgy company?
Grateful every day for my toilet trained cat
Took 5wks to train my cat & 4yrs later she's still going strong. I have far too many photo's & video's of her doing it all by herself it's so cool I just can't resist getting the camera out from time to time still. I still love watching my cat toilet on the toilet now it's so weird, & still feel grateful every time I lean over the toilet to flush for her & get a whiff of her strong urine knowing it's gone instantly, cleaned up. I spent about an hour shut in the bathroom with her after each meal while training till she had confidently gone twice, then gave her a few opportunities on her own, then upgraded her each time. I felt strong fear with each change & she resisted every time but me being there to make her go with the change each first time then it was like I'd won & she'd continue without resistance. I was training my cat on toilets in two separate properties on different days but during the same 5wks & I've had her use two other toilets since she's been fully trained one without any extra training. My tip to others, don't google for advice from people on the web who haven't succeeded, just use your common sense, this system works as is & you just need to invest some time after each feed, it's not easy but it does work
I was impressed the groves moved my cat naturally to correct position meaning I didn't have to touch her & interfere physically with her learning process & I love that all I have to do is flush for her now.
It was expensive when I brought it years ago it cost $120 however I sold it for at least half that & i've saved over 4 years in kitty litter & cleaning supply costs
Takes longer than box suggests.
The 8 weeks or less is an exaggeration, most cats take a lot longer, if you look at their site most reviews say it takes months for each stage. My cat was fine with stage two, put the litter tray on the toilet. when the hole appeared she rebelled held on for days and went elsewhere, after stalking her and moving her onto the toilet while going, 2 weeks later all was good, several months at this stage moved to the larger hole, now back to rebelling. For the price they should include two more hole sizes instead of selling separately, if you can even find them. It is expensive and will not work for all. It is very messy with litter everywhere and a lot of cats will choose to toilet elsewhere at least for a while.
Needs to state how long it takes should include additional hole sizes.
Worth the attempt. Got half way there. Good concept.
You have to have a sense of humour and be willing to clean up the messes with this item. Our two indoor Burmese kittens adapted well to going up on the toilet but would not use the holes. They would do their business around the edges. So my partner drilled holes in the inserts which helped with draining the pee but I was still cleaning up messes. After months of trying the cats would wee in the toilet - Yeah but then poo on the floor - Drat.
Make sure you use flushable litter or you could block you pipes.
Half way there. Tryed at least 3 times now but going back to litter and going to try again soon as hate the litter tray
Should have slope and drainage to save mess
Unless you're home 24/7 don't waste your money or your sanity with this product!!
Brought the litter kwitter because I loved the idea of not having to clean a litter tray all the time and for hygiene reasons. The product advertises that you can train your cat/s to use the human toilet in 8 weeks (give or take).
It's a 3 stage training system designed to train your cat to use a humn toilet (brilliant idea!). Stage 1 is a red insert, stage 2 an amber insert and stage 3 a green insert - all with different sized holes in them so your cat can get used to peeing in the (human) toilet over time.
I have been using it (well, the cat has!) for at least 8 weeks and we can't get past stage 1! Our cat just pees and poos where she likes as soon as I attach the 'amber' (second) stage. As I work full time, I can't be there to supervise her so she does what she likes during the week days (and if I'm not there following her around, on the weekends too!).
I have been careful to introduce the stages at the start of a weekend so I can coach her to use it. I've tried all sorts of techniques suggested on the products website and forum but to no avail.
There seems to be too much of a learning curve going from red stage 1 to amber stage 2 - our cat was petrified of the hole in the centre of the amber insert and couldn't get used to it. Perhaps if the hole was smaller at first she wouldn't have had such difficulty. Our cat is only 10 months old too so it's not as if she is too 'set in her ways' to learn...
I really suggest that unless you are able and prepared to be at home with your cat/s all day every day (at least until they are fully trained) you DON'T waste your time, money and sanity buying this product. I've just spent the past 8 weeks cleaning up their messes around the house and dreading the mess & frustration - not to mention the stress it's probably caused to my cat.
Didn't work for us, you need to be with your cat 24/7 for it to work, hole in stage 2 amber insert is too big and scared our cat
