Welcome to your new furbaby!
Let me start by saying that I have only rarely lived with cats, I'm a
pretty dedicated dog person. No particular objection to cats, mind you.
That being said: I'm not sure flour would really register on a cat as
gravel-like enough in which dig and defecate; if he did, his little
paws would track flour all over the house.
Also, I'm a bit dubious about "flushable" anything. In this case: as
the starch particles soak, they expand and you could have a toilet
blockage to deal with. Legumes, even more so. If it were I, I would
probably get a little garbage pail with a liner and lid and dispose of
the "evidence" once a day in the household trash.
