Additional items you will need:
--A new toilet seat SPECIFICALLY the one made by Mayfair with the detachable child seat. The child seat is relatively flat and detaches from the main adult seat should you ever decide to not use it anymore (tip: don't do this, use it indefinitely). The whole toilet seat is relatively easy to take on and off after the install so you can clean the whole seat. There is a round version and an elongated version for different toilets: Mayfair 183SLOWA NextStep Adult Toilet Seat with Built-in Child Potty Training Seat, Elongated, White. The purpose of this seat is to make the toilet seat hole smaller so you cats feel more confident using it. You also do not have to go past punchout 5 (6 total) on the CityKitty using this seat. I found out with a full sized seat, my cat fell in one time trying to poop and that deterred him from using the toilet for while (he would poop in the sink)!!
--Flushable kitty litter. I used Cat's Pride Premium Scoopable Cat Litter Jug, 14-Pound (you can buy from Walmart) and chicken feed (buy from Tractor Supply Company, a farm supply store). Overall, I used up maybe 2 bags of chicken feed and 3 jugs of Cat's Pride Premium litter. Neither of these litter work well as actual litter for a litterbox but they are flushable and cheap and work for training purposes. You will be using a lot of litter.
--Precious Cat Ultra Litter Attractant, 20 Ounces. This item is used to attract your cats to the foreign place to go to the bathroom as well as the new litter you might be using.
Make sure you do the following:
--Install new toilet seat and leave the child seat down when ever you are done using the bathroom. YES, this is an extra step you have to remember to do. Ask yourself, which is worse: having to put this child seat down every time or having to scoop the cat litter daily and have it track everywhere and have your house smell like poop? Or have your cats too scared of falling in so they stop using the toilet? I just choose to treat my cat like a child. The child seat also shields a bit of water "splash back".
--Follow instructions for CitiKitty. Go slow with removing the rings.
--Blend the Precious Cat Litter attractant in with the litter to send the message to your cats that the toilet is their new litter box.
--Check the toilet and flush all urine and poop at least twice a day if you have 1 toilet shared with 2 cats. I do not recommend more than 2 cats per toilet!! During training, you MUST keep the litter and area clean all the times. This means vacuuming/sweeping/changing the litter and wiping the area with a pet stain cleaner like Nature's Miracle. You will waste a lot of litter (that's why I used chicken feed; costs $12 for 40 pounds).
--Clean the toilet bowl and seats often. Cats will miss and can get pee on the seats. Removable seat design from the mayfair seat helps a lot!
--Duct tape your toilet lid to the water reservoir. My one cat is aggressive with the burying action and she clawed at the lid one time and it shut the lid on the toilet. The lid might have shut on her, too, I don't know. I came home to find poop on the floor because cats couldn't use the toilet!
--If you have to go away for a long time (a weekend) and won't be around for more than 24 hours, I recommend you bring out the litter box. If no one is there to flush, cats will poop else where with a dirty toilet! My cats have no problem going back to the toilet once the litter box is removed again.
Avoid doing the following:
--Don't make your cat use the adult human toilet seat. I had this problem while using the Cat of Thrones toilet seat. My cat fell in once and started using the bathtub and the sink! I now have to put a bucket in my sink and leave 1 inch of water in my tub as deterrent because my one cat now prefers to poop in these spots instead if the toilet if I do not catch him. Do not make the same mistake I did, take precautions!
--Do not skimp on litter and not change it frequently. The CitiKitty is shallow with a small surface area and often times the poop/pee will be exposed due to lack of litter. If the litter smells like pee or poop, the cat will avoid it and find a cleaner spot to do business! This is not what you want.
--Do not leave the toilet unflushed to save water (don't practice "if it's yellow let it mellow"). Check your toilet often (at least twice a day on top of regular human use) and make sure the water is always clean. I did not do this intentionally but left the cats by themselves overnight one weekend and came back to find poop in my bathtub. I found the kitties do not like going if another cat had already pooped in the toilet (dirty water = dirty litter). Cats are oddly like humans. I wouldn't want to poop on top of someone else's poop either. You need to be vigilant and flush, flush, flush!
--Do not watch your cat use the toilet. The toilet is not enclosed so they can feel vulnerable when going. I found out that my one cat would always FACE the toilet cover while peeing, but whenever he sees me observing him, he would turned his back towards the toilet cover and tried to pee that way or worst stand up and leave while still peeing. This resulted getting pee everywhere because the angle was not right. Leave your cats alone to do their business. Both of my cats will sometimes look like they have to go but will circle the toilet and walk out of the bathroom if they see me following them.
--One time my cat followed me into the bathroom when I had to go #2 (because they like to be locked in with you). 5 minutes later, he decided he wanted to go, too, meowed a bunch, and realizing what's happening, I scrambled to get up. Too late, he ended up pooping on the floor before I could put my pants back on.
--You will have more success with female cats than male cats. This is because male cats stand up more while peeing. Female cats actually sit. Male cats can miss and sometimes get urine all over the place. Again, cats are oddly like humans.
--If you feed cats on a schedule, your cats will learn to poop on a schedule, too. My cats have established a schedule where the male cat poops before noon and the female cat in the evening. This is good because you have an idea of when to check the toilet to flush it.
--If you have to collect urine/feces samples for the vet, it is dead easy with the CitiKitty. If all goes well, you will likely have the extra insert that you did not even have to use. Put this on the used CitiKitty ring under all the toilet seats without litter. You cat will go like normal and the insert will catch the poop/pee. If you already used the insert, it might be helpful to get 2 CitiKitty sets.
--With toilet training my cat, I was able to identify the problem of my cat peeing blood once from stress because the toilet water was pink!! You can't do this with litter.
--My one cat will now pee on ANY toilet. I brought him to my relative's house once and he peed on 2 separate toilets (with different adult sized seats) without my prompting. This is in addition to the reintroduction of a litter box at the relative's house. He will still go #2 in the litter box. This means less pee clumps to scoop! If I move, I can just bring the Mayfair toilet seat and my cat will probably recognize it as the new toilet. The child seat is mainly to help the cats go #2 because they require more balancing doing #2 than #1.
--I don't think this would work on an older cat. You will probably have to buy a step ladder because the toilet is still quite high and older cats can get joint pain.
--Overall, I do not recommend this kit to train more than 2 cats per toilet because of the small area of the toilet and how fast it can get dirty if not flushed at all hours of the day. If you have multiple cats, train on multiple/all toilets with multiple kits in your house.

Update: It is now July 2017. I've moved and now in a 1 bedroom/1 bathroom apartment and now I have 3 cats. Unfortunately, my third cat was not trainable because he absolutely needs to dig in litter and there were many accidents on my bed. It was also too much cleaning to have 3 cats share 1 toilet and the toilet was almost always dirty so that probably contributed to the newest cat rebelling. I have since switched back to a litter box because 3 cats and 1 toilet is just too much. Interestingly enough, my one cat now prefers to pee in the toilet (even the toilet at my new apartment) so I still get some benefit of having to scoop fewer pee clumps.
Update 2: I have now acquired a Litter Robot Open Air. I would still prefer litter free but the Litter Robot is a suitable replacement if you have more than 2 cats and only 1 toilet.
To begin with, I will agree with other reviewers that not every single cat will adjust and go in the toilet. However, many of them can and will. It just takes a lot of patience, both with time and occasional "accidents" while toilet training your cat.
The flushable cat litter I used was World's Best Cat Litter. The whole process has taken me about 3-4 months. I personally think that the kit progresses too quickly. One week in between rings is too quick. You should wait 2-3 weeks in between each ring removal. I started my kitten when she was 12 weeks old (already had her litter box next to the toilet) and when I set the tray on the toilet, I gave her a little "step" so she could easily climb up until she was a little bigger.
Accidents to date: 5 - she peed on a trash bag we had next to the door twice and in her large food bowl three times. I have since switched her to a smaller food bowl and she hasn't us any accidents for the past month. She did however use our little ferret's litter box 3 times as well during the process, but I don't really call those "accidents" because she technically went in a litter box. Thankfully, that didn't cause her to regress in her training.
Things that may cause you some frustration:
(1) If you only have 1 bathroom in your house or don't have an extra bathroom... you may not have the patience to do this. Luckily, we have no children and have 2 bathrooms in our house so we were able to designate one bathroom just for the cat and still have the other one available for us.
(2) It IS messy. You pretty much have to sweep up litter every day at least once a day from the floor. It's just part of the process while the cat continues to scoop after each bowel movement. Even if the poop/pee drops directly into the toilet, your cat will still scoop.
(3) Cat poop. Once you start punching out the rings, you don't want to use too much litter cause then the cat will scoop it all into the toilet and even though it's "flushable," it can cause sewage problems - even toilet paper can clog a toilet if too much is used. As a result, my cat sometimes got poop on her paw when attempting to cover it with litter. So I've decided to keep "Well & Good Paw & Bum" cat wipes next to the toilet in order to clean her up. Sometimes I'll just stick her in the tub for a quick clean (since she's a kitten, it was easy for me to do this). However, as the rings get removed and the center hole becomes bigger, the cat will start pooping directly into the toilet bowl and this will no longer be an issue.
In the end, I am very satisfied with this product. Even if my kitten didn't adapt to the product, this training kit still works well. People need to understand that not every single cat is going to adjust to going in the toilet. I've rated this product based on it's ability to work, not the cat's ability to learn.
Also, for people who complain that the product is flimsy... It's supposed to be! By giving under the weight of your cat, it forces him/her to use the toilet seat for balance. It even states that right on the package.
