Frequently Asked Questions:

1- Can my cat use the litter box while wearing a diaper garment?  Yes, if there is a tail opening.

2- Can my cat go no. 2 in the diaper?  Yes, if there is no tail opening.  A normal tail opening has enough room for a
stool to pass.

3-  How can I clean up my cat's behind without giving her a complete bath?  I sell Davis waterless shampoos on my
website.

4- Why is my cat tinkling around the house?  Sometimes it's a sign there is something wrong.  It may be a urinary
issue.  If your cat has been checked by your vet and is still tinkling or spraying then diapers or stud pants are necessary.  
Cats have a natural instinct to spray or tinkle their territory as a way to intice OR threaten other cats,
or to lay claim on
their territory.  It is a natural behavior that some cats still possess from the wild and should not be considered abnormal in
a healthy cat.   Humans find this very offensive but the cats find their scents devine!

Other times it is a health issue such as incontinence due to age or other medical conditions.

5- How long does it take for a cat to get used to wearing garments?  Our furry companions are individuals just as      
people.  Some adjust right away while others take longer to learn the art of tolerating diaper and clothing garments.

    Once you have acquired the appropriate diaper garment for your dog/cat I hope the following tips will assist you both
    in completing the remainder of the process in an uncomplicated and pleasant manner.

    Most importantly, please be patient when first trying the garments on and introducing them to your dogs/cats.  Please
    read the diapering instructions  before proceeding so you will know in advance what to do and how to do it.  Make
    certain not to startle your dog/cat with the garment or indicate the garment as a punishment.

    Allow your cat enough time to see, sniff and smell the garment prior to diapering them. Talk to them in a calm,
    soothing voice explaining what you are going to do. Remain calm or else your friend will sense your nervousness and
    frustration and he/she too will become nervous and frustrated.

    If your dog/cat escapes from the garment and sizing is correct; simply put it back on again later. Kindly inform them it
    is necessary to wear this garment if everyone is to live happily together in the same household! (It is completely
    normal for them to walk "funny" or fall over until they learn how to walk wearing a garment). Repeat this process over
    a period of hours, days-however long it takes for them to learn.  Reward your dogs/cats verbally and physically;
    complementing them for wearing their garments.  

    Cats previously isolated or caged before being introduced to diaper garments soon learn to associate their freedom
    with the diaper garment. Wearing a garment will eventually become the normal household routine.

    6 -How often should I change the diapers and pads?  This will depend upon flow and based on individual situation.  Urine flow
    will vary with the size of the cat and type of flow.  Whether the garment is to hold all urine flow or some.  Trial and error will determine
    your individual needs.

    7- What if the tail opening is too large for my cat?  A pad may be used to slide up over the tail opening.  Other style tail openings
    can be made in the garments by special order.

    8-  How do I measure my cat for diapers and stud pants?  See measuring your cat.

    9-  What type of garment should I try first?  I always recommend the standard style first if you are uncertain.
