On more than one sit I’ve had owners who flush cat poo down the toilet. I won’t do this and always put in a biodegradable bag and into outdoor rubbish bin. It is a health hazard to put down the loo, so why do some owners still do it?
Interesting… I’m genuinely curious as of why it’s a health hazard. Human poo gets flushed down there.
Fascinating topic! Do they not use litter pans in the UK for indoor kitties? Just curious???
I have a friend who has worked his lifetime in the water industry and always says there are only three things that should be put down a toilet -Poo, Pee, and Paper. Nothing else, even if it is marked ‘flushable’
For this reason, I would never put ‘flushable’ cat litter down the toilet.
I can’t say I have ever done it but I would have thought just cat poo would be fine. Maybe bits of cat litter stuck to it would be an issue?
Edit - I just googled it and it seems toxoplasma in cat poo is a problem. Every day is a school day. Thanks for the heads up @Wildcolonialgirl
Cat poo shouldn’t be flushed down a toilet because cat poo contains the parasite toxoplasma which some sewage systems can’t destroy. Toxoplasmosis is harmful for humans (especially pregnant women) and other warm blooded mammals.
Yes, but you have to remove the poo from the litter tray and dispose of it.
I would be thrilled to flush it!
Into the bin it goes
