    Why? My sister has a cat with the litter box in the bathroom and flushes its deposits all the time.

    They market kitty litter labeled as "flushable" as well.

    When I replaced my OEM toilet installed in 1956 it had four bolts but as I discovered the front two into the floor tile were fake. I wonder if this was common practice in those days?
