Depending on where you live, it may not be a good idea to flush cat litter:

Quote:
Although most of these green litters are septic- and sewer-safe, its best not to flush them into our waterways. Cat feces contains the Toxoplasmosis gondii (TG) parasite, dangerous to pregnant women and marine life, particularly sea otters. Unfortunately TG is not filtered out in most water treatment plants, so dont flush your used litter.
