Oct 9, 2011 - Would you want to use an unflushed toilet

Looking back, I now realize my fallacy. My No. 1 problem was that I chose the wrong period in my life to toilet train the cat.

If you have this problem, you can try discouraging the post-toilet digging by praising your cat as soon as she's finished, flushing the toilet quickly to get rid of any lingering smell, and calling her away, thereby training her to get down immediately. You could also try feeding her just after she's used the toilet, as a distraction.
