When i was a kid my cat learned how to pee in the toilet by watching us. My cat now drinks out of the toilet.
Why put restrictions on the kitten? Why not let him/her experience the world? You take the toilet away, you take the kitten's freedom away. Pets are not meant to be controlled. You wouldn't like a significant other to control you, right?
And the Universe said, "Let there be Zeni's YouTube Channel". And so it was. And it was good.
