A note about flushable cat litter

Use flushable cat litter with caution and always follow manufacturer disposal instructions closely. Not all plumbing/septic systems may be able to cope with ‘flushable’ litters and clogging may occur. 

Similarly, the flushing of cat litter is prohibited in some states and municipalities (California, for example), due to links between cat feces and the pathogen Toxoplasma gondii – always check local and state regulations before flushing.
