I currently use bathing sand in my rats' litter box but I'd like to change it to something I can just flush down the toilet (it would be much more convenient). I tried using tissues but they just take them out of the box to play with. So I thought about that biodegradable soya based or corn based cat litter but I don't know if it is OK to use for rats (and I couldn't find any information on it).

    is this litter intentionally for flushing down the toilette? Because "biodegradable" in my understabding says only, that it will rott and not, that it will pass the water-cleaning-processes for used water to get clean water out of it. Maybe a region tag would help, because how used water is processed could be very different. Sep 19 '20 at 7:43

    In general you should never flush any cat litter down the toilet, biodegradable or not. That stuff clogs up the sewer and causes lots of trouble in sewer treatment plants.

  • Anything that doesn't leave a lot of dust is a good choice. Sometimes you can buy paper scraps looking like a shredded paper, they don't take it out so eagerly like the tissues :)
