Question Toilet training kitties! Who has successfully done it?

I'm thinking on the toilet training idea I heard from a PT member (Angelnstuff)...& the idea seems like a good one.I can see a lot of plus's to it.Litterbox cleaning isn't the funnest of chores (though I do it because I'm my kitties slave! ) & no way would I want them to be indoor/outdoor...I had bad experiences with that in the past.They are strictly indoor cats.So I thought toilet training would be an...experience,if nothing else.

Has many of you fellow PTers been successful?
I would be training 2 cats total.Male& female.My kitties Mocha& Chai.

Didnt know weather to post here or on your other post.. but We've taken a break from toilet training for awhile, theres been alot going on here and it wasnt working and just adding to the stress of things. We used a method we found online where they talk about using a disposable roasting pan.. which worked for the first step.. but once you cut a hole in the middle, his weight would make it dip in the middle and all the litter just went out.. so he would use it once.. then all the litter would run out.. and he would potty on the floor the next time, so were thinking maybe if we used 2 trays, it would be more sturdy or reinforce it with tape or something.. i dunno. I looked at the litter kwitter, and if it wasn't so expensive ($70) I think it would be worth trying, because it would be more durable, and theres a lip around the center, to stop the litter from falling out. I dunno, on the plus side, if it works you could use it again and again, maybe even resell it and make some of your money back? And you wouldn't have to buy litter anymore.. so that would save a bunch in the long run too.. but yeah.. its expensive so its not an option for us at the moment. But we will be trying to toilet train him again, after things settle down a bit here.

I finally have a house now that will have 2 bathrooms, but one's not done yet. Once the second bathroom is finished then I will be trying to toilet train my cats. I was thinking of using a cheap plastic container from the dollar store instead of the tin roasting pan cause my cats are both quite heavy. One's 12lbs and the other is 15lbs. I think that would be a little too heavy for that, they'd end up in the toilet and never trust it again, lol.
