No potty training necessary: Rains force feline to toilet

Published: Thursday, July 25, 2013 at 16:42 PM.

Johnson has owned Miles since his kitten days when a friend found a litter of kittens in her bushes that included Miles.

"For a long time I thought I had a ghost, and it was freaking me out because I would find urine in the toilet and it wasn't from me,” said Johnson.  “Then, one day I caught him using it."

Flash forward more than a decade and the stormy summer of 2013 forced Johnson to buy something she has never owned before — a litter box. It turns out that Miles’ toilet etiquette does not extend to No. 2. Miles was never trained to use a litter box either, but once presented with one, he seemed to know instinctively what to do. 

"Miles has changed a lot in the last month," says Johnson. "Maybe it's his age, or the fireworks, or the flooding.”
