Remember: "It is better to keep your [hands still] and appear stupid than to [respond] and remove all doubt."
The best thing is when people ask where the cat shits and you reply with a dead pan face "the toilet, where else do you think you idiot"
it's worth it for that alone
also, if you wanna do something with the flushing and an arduino it'd be super easy to setup a servo to control the handle then make a button for the cat. or just automate it, anytime a sensor reads the cat on the pot for about 30sec-1min have it flush right after.
guarantee someones done a simliar project before so you just need to find their schematics and code.
Oh you humans…..constantly questioning, exploring, and wondering why, why, why! If you were smart like a cat you would just use your nose and immediately understand why
I've taken all this guidance on board and can now happily report that I've successfully trained my cat to shit in my toilet, cook my breakfast, show up punctually for my job and get on surprisingly well with my gf.
Couldn't be happier!
I learned how to do that in my psychology class last semester. Don't have a cat or i would try it myself. I believe its the same thing as classical conditioning. I,ve been meening to start a conditioning experiment on myself by combining some sort of a stimulus and shutting off a light. Eventually i hope to use the stimulus to make my eyes dialate on comand.
