young kittens & litter & vet visits

I have been looking for a nonclumping sandy litter here in Korea for a whle now. However, I have not found one. My only options are corn/bean/or something like that. I choose not to use those because if the kittens becom used to it they may not use the sandy litter when they arrive at their new homes.

I read at one site that "clumping" is bad but "scoopable" is okay. If this is so, can I use the flushable arm & hammer? Do you all think that is okay?

A second question I have is what (and when) do I need to have the kittens checked out, and medicated, for (ie. deworming etc...).

With litter it is up to you what you want to use. I have read on the internet and in books that clay litter can over a period of time cause uri in cats because of the dust that comes off of the product. Also if clay litter is ingested by the cat it can cause intestinal problems because the litter will soak up any liquid it can. I am not sure what the arm and hammer litter is made of but most likely clay. To me a litter that is made of wheat, corn, or something else that is a renewable resource is probably the best way to go in my opinion. It is safe for you cat, environment, and is flush able. But I always welcome comments and suggestions from others about this topic.

You should have you kittens checked out as soon as you can.
Hope this info helps. Good luck.
