Potty Train Your Pet With Flushable Catolet

first_imgStay on target Robert De Niro isn’t the only one who can toilet-train a cat.Pet owners with cash to burn and empty space in the bathroom can pre-order Catolet, a smart toilet for felines and small dogs.This niche gadget eliminates the pesky task of cleaning and refilling litter trays; once connected to a water supply and sewage system, the box runs on autopilot, flushing waste and eliminating odor without human intervention.Catolet employs built-in sensors that detect an animal’s arrival and departure from the crate. After a user-specified period, liquid and solid waste is carried off on a conveyor belt to be crushed and washed away, leaving the commode ready for use again.Connect directly to the water supply and sewage system, or the nearest faucet and toilet bowl (via Kickstarter)An included kit provides everything you need to hook Catolet up to the indoor plumbing. Or, connect the device to the nearest faucet and toilet bowl (as long as you don’t mind the pet’s poop mingling with personal refuse).Download the companion app for Android, iOS, and Windows to track how often your cat visits the litter tray, receive malfunction notifications, and set flushing intervals.The concept of a fully automatic litter box is not new.“However, the operating principle of the Catolet device has NEVER been used before,” the company said in a press release (emphasis theirs). “No waste is gathered in any container, [a] refill is not required.”A training program is also in place, helping the animal adapt to this new system in up to 21 days.Train your pet to use Catolet in fewer than 21 days (via Kickstarter)Three models—Catolet Basic, Catolet, and Catolet Plus—are available to pre-order on Kickstarter.Starting at $159, the basic model does not include a pump and shredder, and is only suitable for attaching to a toilet bowl or sewage riser. The main version can withstand up to 22 lbs, while the “Plus” is suitable for small dogs and large cats weighing up to 33 lbs.For now, the gadget comes in four colors (white, yellow, blue, or pink) to match your decor; additional designs (cat paws, “cute cat faces”) may roll out in the future.In less than one week, Catolet has collected nearly $10,000; the all-or-nothing project has 38 days to reach its $60,000 goal.
