Charles Mingus’ Katzentraining

cat toilet trainingBassist Charles Mingus ist ja für seinen exzetrischen Charakter hinreichend bekannt. Zu seinen kuriosesten Werken gehört sicherlich seine Methode, Katzen das aufs-Klo-gehen beizubringen: “The Charles Mingus CAT-alog For Toilet Training Your Cat”.

“First, you must train your cat to use a home-made cardboard litter box, if you have not already done so. (…) Once your cat is trained to use a cardboard box, start moving the box around the room, towards the bathroom. (…) Then he will gradually follow the box as you move it to the bathroom. (…) Now, as you move the box, also start cutting the brim of the box down, so the sides get lower. Do this gradually. (…) Then, one day, prepare to put the box on top of the toilet. (…) put less and less newspaper inside the box. (…) cut a small hole in the very center of his box (…) When he jumps up he will not be afraid of the hole because he expects it. At this point you will realize that you have won. The most difficult part is over. (…) Don’t be surprised if you hear the toilet flush in the middle of the night.” (stark gekürzter Auszug des Textes)
