T-Training Setup Pics

Just for the viewing pleasure if you are interesting, here are the setup of our toilet.

Here is the toilet. The Mamaw made a special toilet seat which is the fluffy and the chick yellow which we enjoy. We like to scratch on it now and also we do not fall off when we are doing our businesses.

Here you can see how the seat is made. There was no seat similar to be found in the store so the Mamaw went to this place called the Wal Mart which is where I have never been and bought a toilet LID cover, for $3.88. I know because I saw the price tag and I can read because I am the smart. She put it on the seat, and measure where to cut the hole. Then she cut the hole with some scissors. Along with, at the Wal Mart she bought some 1 inch size or so elastic (bear with me I can't measure) for about $1.24 and also some hooks, average sized, for about $1.99. She also had the sewing stuff already. She also bought this glue stuff that can act to hem things because she did not want to hem the entire cover and for that she paid also $1.99 but that was not necessarily required. She says you can buy the cover in any color but she picked the yellow because it is more blendable with our Swheat Scoop litter that is the flushable.

(The stuff for the hemming left a blue stain on the backside of the cover.) After cutting the hole she applied the hemming stuff to the backside (not to the top because it leaves a blue stain) and left to dry overnight. She applied the liberal amount. This helped the carpetty pieces not to fall off. She shook off the loose pieces though. Then she marked off 6 good places and sewed on the elastics using thick thread. Then she sewed hooks to the ends of the elastics and the other side of the lid cover. Then she put the lid on and hooked the elastics. The lid cover should be washable because everything in it is washable, but Mamaw says better to use the bag or pillowcase because of so many hooks and just in the case.

In case you are interesting here is the Holiday Bowl setup we are using. Unfortunately we could only find the holiday platter so this is being used which was at the Wal Mart for $3. It is very sturdy and attached by some duct tape. In the middle we have the Hefty plastic bowl which is held in place on the bottom with duct tapes. These are $1.99 for a set of 16. It is stackable and there is one at the bottomest of that one with a large hole, and that one is duct taped to the platter. The one on top has the small hole and is stacked but can be removed for washing. That is the convenient because we always do the business in the bowl.

Here is the bathroom. You can see our clicker on the cabinet. We do many things for the clicker like touch the sticks. You can see how the toilet seat is the fluffiest. The Mamaw tried sittings on it too and said so herself. It is the fluffiest. If you share a toilet with parents though there can be litter on the lid stuck in the seat and that would be the sucky. However we have our own bathroom that is why it is yellow because we like that color. You can see all the rugs are removed although we like the yellow rugs. On top of the toilet you can see oru kitty shampoo. This is because sometimes the Figaro gets the #2 stuck on his bottom and has to get some baths.

You can see here are the rest of the bowls which get washed as soon as we do the business and then air dry on the countertop. Usually we are using the stackable bowls but sometimes we have the styrofoam bowls with no holes in case we are not wanting the hole. Right now the brother is struggling with the hole so sometimes if he will not go he gets the other bowl, these are the cheapest and sometimes the Mamaw is lazy and throws them away instead of washing out, especially if we did a lot of business in it and covered it up already.

Note that the lid cover is the way to go because it is already containing the rubber backing. With a from scratch project this may prove difficult. Also the total project cost came to under $10 which is reasonable.

Also I want to point the out that there are some good birds to watch outside today so I am gonna go do that now.
