Just a note to say we are a young family (only one kiddo, age 2) who live in our Casita 17 Spirit Standard full time and travel while I work remotely. We came from a 43' coach and absolutely love the simplicity and mobility we've gained by going small. I know you may not be living in your Casita like us, but know that there are a few young families out there mucking about in Casitas - they aren't common, but they exist!

Please do NOT put kitty litter, no matter how ''''flushable'' it may be, in your Casita toilet. For that matter, I find it difficult to believe they can make litter  so dissolvable that it can be flushed down ANY toilet, public sewer lines or septic tank. Just put it in the garbage like everything else. Broken water lines or worse, plugged septic fields/tanks are no fun.

Oh, I certainly wasn't suggesting anyone should put kitty litter down their Casita toilet!  And anyway, it's moot for me since my Casita doesn't have a toilet...  As for the actual kitty litter, I do scoop the cat boxes daily and put the scooped out waste, + the small amount of litter along with it, into the toilet.  The litter is made from corn and behaves quite like toilet paper, actually.  That is, it absorbs small amounts of liquid but immediately becomes mushy and breaks apart if it's made too wet.  We have city sewer lines, and I've never had the least bit of trouble with flushing a *small* amount of the litter.  Perhaps I would feel differently if I felt we had more fragile lines or a septic tank.  

 

That said, there are potentially environmental concerns with flushing cat waste, so it's still a bit of a judgement call.
