Dunno, but in either case, you'd better make *d at mned* sure that your septic 
system can handle the stuff.  We used to have a lot of issues with that sort 
of thing (even normally flushable stuff) when I was a kid, because we 
weren't hooked into a city system--we lived out in the country and had a 
septic tank/drain field set up.  I would have been scrubbing the thing out 
with my toothbrush if Dad had ever caught me flushing kitty litter.  Good 
grief...just scoop it out and throw it away!
