Posted October 14, 2018 10:01:06The size of a cat can cause it to be difficult to use the toilet when it’s too small, according to a new study.
The study, published in the journal PLOS ONE, found that cats have a tendency to chew up toilet paper, which can cause the toilet paper to be too big for the cat’s body.
“For some cats, this can be a problem, and can make it difficult for them to get into the toilet,” said lead researcher Jochen Wiederlein, an assistant professor of veterinary medicine at the University of Bern.
“It can cause them to be unable to enter the toilet.”
It’s the same issue that cats with bigger jaws can experience when they are in the toilet.
“We need to be able to remove the paper from the cat, and we need to do it in the same way as we would for a human,” said Dr Wiede.
The researchers say that cat owners need to understand how the cat handles toilet paper.
“The cat may have difficulty chewing up the paper because it’s not the same as the toiletpaper, and the same amount of pressure on the cat can result in the paper not getting into the mouth,” said study co-author Thomas Epp, a veterinary assistant professor at the Institute for Animal Research.
“There’s a certain amount of stress that can be put on the mouth, so the cat is probably chewing the paper harder than normal.”
The researchers suggest that people should ask their cat to use a toilet where there is a seat or an open area, so that it can breathe through the mouth.
“In the case of the paper, the cat needs to breathe through a hole in the floor, so there’s a hole to breathe,” Dr Wiele said.
“I think that for humans, we need the same kind of help.”
