Fitting to existing seats


Currently, the Sanitary Cat Seat is only available in one model, and only in white. It is designed to fit most common round, commodes, as seen here, or what is called, "Standard, Round, Soft or Slow, Close" type seats. It can be an oval, or horseshoe/open front shape, It is not designed to fit over, or to cover your existing seat. It replaces the existing lid, sitting on top of the existing seat, just as your lid did.

The Sanitary Cat Seat is designed to fit the rounded style toilet seat. This is the most common residential seat. Note that some homes have a more elongated seat. Since the Sanitary Cat Seat sits on top of the existing seat rather than inside the seat, the Sanitary Cat Seat should work with the elongated seat.

Chances are you have one of these two types of toilet seats in your home. The pre-drilled hinge plate of the Sanitary Cat Seat accepts screws from both hinge types. The only tool you need is a small Phillips head screw driver. Extra screws are included.



The Sanitary Cat Seat is shown below with a toilet seat for display purposes. The Sanitary Cat Seat is sold separately so you keep the toilet seat you are used to.

Benefits

Keep their paws clean.
People don't stand in their toilets, so why should cats? Litter boxes are not very sanitary. The cat stands in the same material it covers its waste with and then walks around the house, jumps on the kitchen counters and sleeps on your bed.

Replacing the litter box with a Sanitary Cat Seat can reduce tracked bacteria in your home. The Sanitary Cat Seat trains your cat and provides a separate, sanitary surface for human and cat use!

All plastic construction never rusts, stains, or traps odors. Easy to clean with any household product. No alignment or adjustments needed. No exchanging bowls and setting them on the floor. You even rinse it in place! No need to take it outside to the garden hose.

'No spill' guard prevents spills during cleaning or raising. Beveled bowl empties directly into center. Keeps your cat's paws and commode clean and fresh.

The Sanitary Cat Seat replaces your existing toilet seat lid. You keep the seat you are used to.

It's dark and cold. Can you stand the litter box smell until morning?
All cat owners know the drill.One more thing to do before bed. Do you add litter to get through another day until you really have to carry this thing outside?

With the Sanitary Cat Seat, after a short training period, cats learn to use the Sanitary Cat Seat and save you both chores and unpleasant odors.

Save money, time, and resources.
Stop hauling litter from the grocery store to your home, and then back out to the garbage. It is a cost and a hassle. According to experts, landfills accept 8 billion pounds of cat litter per year! This is twice the weight of disposable diapers they accept. It is also thought that the silicon particles in clay-based litter may be a human carcinogen. See a cat litter article.

By requiring no litter and very little cleaning, the Sanitary Cat Seat saves water, resources, and money by eliminating an unpleasant chore. The cost of litter, like everything else, will only go up. The Sanitary Cat Seat is a permanent solution!

Advantages
Unlike simply training your cat to balance on a regular toilet, the Sanitary Cat Seat provides secure footing. There is no danger of falling in to the water, and it is safe for smaller cats and older, less steady-footed cats. Tiny kittens should be trained on paper for the first few months.

The Sanitary Cat Seat doesn't require you and your guests to share a seat with your cat's feet. Both cats and humans sometimes "miss" and neither wants to share the results.

The drip catcher allows you can raise the cat seat even after washing it without dripping off the back and the human seat stays clean, dry, and ready for use.

Training

We recommend you train your cat in stages. First, move the litter box to the bathroom where the Sanitary Cat Seat will be installed. After the cat is used to the new location, you can begin getting them used to the Sanitary Cat Seat.

To get your cat started, a training bowl insert is included with each Sanitary Cat Seat. Simply insert the training bowl in the Sanitary Cat Seat, add a small amount of litter.

During the first week of training leave the litter box accessible. When you see the cat enter the bathroom, put the cat on the Sanitary Cat Seat for a moment so they know it is safe. Let them smell the litter in the training insert.

Next, pick a weekend when you will be home and remove the litter box. When your cat enters the bathroom, lift them onto the Sanitary Cat Seat and offer encouragement, but don't try to force them. If they seem reluctant to use the toilet, return the litter box and try again later. Don't think that your cat is too old to learn. The Sanitary Cat Seat was developed with the help of a fussy cat who is in her mid-teens!

After a few tries, the cat will use the Sanitary Cat Seat with the training insert. Clean out the insert and replace the litter every time. Let the cat get used to this for a week or so, then remove the training insert.

Full training method and ideas are included in the manual.

Natural Cleaning

The high impact plastic is very durable, but you will want to give it a rinse every so often. Here are some ideas on cleaning without using harsh chemicals:

Vinegar. A little white vinegar is great for de-odorizing. Best of all, you don't have to rinse. The vinegar smells disappears when it dries.

Borax. A natural, soft abrasive.

Soap and Warm water. We like to keep an old dish detergent bottle with a weak soap and water mixture handy.
