7. Train the cat to use the toilet - FAIL
This resolution isn't as crazy as you might think, search YouTube and there are countless videos of cats using the human toilet. It's cleaner, cheaper and a heck of a lot less wasteful than a litter tray and as I live in a cat flap-less home (not out of choice) it's the perfect way to give my cat a more pleasant toilet experience when I'm at work.
At least, it would be if I hadn't failed this resolution after about six weeks.
Despite my managing to get my hands on a Litter Kwitter and carefully following the training steps, Dolly made it very clear she wasn't willing to participate in this resolution.
I'm not going to go into detail about how she refused to join in, but for anyone considering this kind of toilet training I'd suggest starting with a younger cat than my seven-year-old.
