Bog Blog, Flushed With Success!
A Cat owner has amazed animal experts by teaching his pet Salem to use a human toilet. Fed up with a smelly litter tray in his second floor flat, Luke trained nine month-old Salem to go to the toilet in his bathroom by offering treats as a reward. Salem can also shake paws and roll over and is currently being taught to fetch. However it is his human like toilet skills that have left experts baffled. Luke, who lives in Solihull, West Midlands, said: "A lot of the time we don't even realise that he's been to the loo. "Sometimes we hear him scratching at the seat but it's only when we step into the bathroom and see the evidence in the toilet that we know for sure. "He can't use the flush yet, he needs more training for that. Their local veterinary practice was so impressed with Salems' tricks that it crowned the marvellous moggy a cat in a million. "We've heard the phrase, 'You can't teach an old dog new tricks', but apparently you can teach a young cat anything as Salem has proved." Flushed with success we say.
Have a tremendous Thursday all.
