or..Australian. I have always wanted to post this up but I just kept forgetting. Question is:

How do you usually say in a normal conversation when your cat or dog, pee or poo? Because peeing sounds a bit rude? and poo I am not even sure if that is correct. Are there better ways to say it? yet not rude and not too formal kind.

e.g. Are these correct?
1. My cat does not pee or poo inside the house..
2. My cat pees in the toilet...
3. my dog poos infront of the gate..

Thanks for answering my long held question in my mind. :)

"does it's thing" is a common phrase

Most of the time we American's are not so delicate with our words

urinate and defaecate are the precise words

Thats the thing, geography and culture is what will determine it. Using urinate and deficate would be proper all around like ATNO says, but in some places it might be perfectly acceptable to say "My dog pisses outside" or "My cat *plum* in a litter box" and in other places that would be horrendously rude and crude and impolite.
