What about toxoplasmosis?

  • The safety of your kitty and the environment is always our top priority! We definitely recommend checking with your local municipality regulations prior to flushing. According to the CDC, indoor cats are very unlikely to be infected by toxoplasmosis as it is typically contracted by eating rodents and/or birds! We would always advise to not flush if your kitty is on a raw food diet, as it can be a source as well. To be extra precautious, your kitty’s #1 is safe to be flushed, and #2 can be thrown out!
  • The 4P’s are definitely a great rule of thumb! Our Really Great Cat Litter is specifically designed to fully disintegrate when immersed in water, making it easy on pipe and sewage systems. This litter is primarily made of recycled soybean fiber and is chemical, clay, perfume, and silica free to ensure it is safe on the environment. As our Really Great Cat Litter is made of natural ingredients it is also safe to compost, if preferred!
  • “Cats get Toxoplasma infection by eating infected rodents, birds or other small animals, or anything contaminated with feces from another cat that is shedding the microscopic parasite in its feces. After a cat has been infected, it can shed the parasite for up to two weeks. The parasite becomes infective one to five days after it is passed in the feces of the cat. The parasite can live in the environment for many months and contaminate soil, water, fruits and vegetables, sandboxes, grass where animals graze for food, litter boxes, or any place where an infected cat may have defecated” - CDC
