Nowadays, there are just so many kinds of pets around the world. Most countries have their own native animals which can be domesticated but in some other places like the United States and Canada, where importation of these creatures is allowed, you can see a wide array of pet species.
Most people think that all kinds of pets should only be in the zoo. However, it is not true since there are animals that can be kept as house pets and they do not require special care which most exotic animals need to survive.
One such example of a pet that does not need much attention is the potty-trained cat or dog. The term “potty trained” may sound funny but it is just a word that refers to animals that do not need to be potty trained or housebroken.
This concept may sound surprising but it is actually possible since the pets are brought up in a controlled environment with special attention paid to their habits which they follow once they’re released into the wild.
Some people still think of this as a myth because it is difficult to believe that pets can be litter box trained. But don’t let those negative opinions put you off from learning more about this interesting fact.
There really are domesticated animals that can be housebroken just like a human infant. This means that the only time the animal will need attention or would have to go outside is when they’re hungry or even when the time has come for them to be released back into the wild.
The most common type of “housebroken” pet is the cat. A lot of people think that cats are difficult to train because they run around and usually do their business anywhere they want, unlike dogs who make it a point to go outside.
However, cats are actually really easy to potty train. If you think about it, since their wild days are spent in places where there are sand dunes, the cats will naturally go back to this environment when they need to relieve themselves.
So all you have to do is provide your cat with a litter box filled with sand and as soon as they need to do their business, they’ll go there and use it.
Another really common type of pet is the potty-trained ferret. As with cats, these little creatures are also born and raised in a controlled environment so they can follow house rules once they’re released into your home.
The biggest difference between training a cat and a ferret is that the latter does not have a sense of smell so it cannot easily find its way to a certain room in your home. But if you keep the litter box far from their bed, they will still be able to find it on their own.
In conclusion, training domesticated animals to be housebroken is possible. All you have to do is make sure that you provide them with the right environment and set up a training schedule for them. They may still follow their instinctual behavior even though they’re living inside your home, but it will only take them less time to get used to this new kind of lifestyle.
