Needs more training

Today, my mom read online you could train cats to relieve themselves in the toilet. Without reading any further, she took away the litter tray. My house reeks of cat piss and shit, and she still refuses to give the cat its litter tray back, insisting it'll work eventually. FML

She needs to do more research. This process takes a lot of work and time.

you actually have to drop their turds into the toilet with the cat watching repeatedly for this to probably work

My cat is actually toilet trained and it is a pretty lengthy process that involves training trays and flushable litter and slowly removing these things while using treats, clicks, and positive reinforcement until the cat is used to sitting on the toilet and aiming into the toilet bowl and all that. You can't just toss their shit in the toilet while they watch and expect them to learn anything from that. In their mind that's no different than you simply cleaning their litter box and throwing it all away.

It's also possible to teach a person to become a brain surgeon. Just because it's possible doesn't mean you don't need more reading and training and it will all get sorted out.

If it is YOUR house and not hers, buy yourself another litter tray. If your house is her house too, buy yourself another litter tray and put it somewhere she won't know where it is but the cat will.
