Q: Is Purr & Simple septic safe?
A: Purr & Simple is made from nutshell by-products, the shells from tree nut crops of Northern California to be more specific.
Q: Since P & S is made from nut shell based materials should I be concerned about nut allergies?
A: Nut protein levels are extremely low. Our most recent data from the University of Nebraska, Lincoln Food Allergen Research Program indicated only 14 ppm, (parts per million). While this is an extremely low level, people with extreme cases of allergies specific to tree nuts, should be cautious or avoid contact entirely. Our products do not contain or come into contact with peanuts.
Q: Is it unsafe for pregnant women to handle unused cat litter?
A: Unused cat litter is safe for handling by pregnant women. However, pregnant women should avoid handling used cat litter. Toxoplasmosis, an illness characterized by cold or flu-like symptoms, can be transmitted by cat feces. It is especially serious in pregnant women because it can cause birth defects. Immune suppressed persons may also be susceptible to toxoplasmosis. For further information, consult your doctor.

Q: How can I dispose of the cat litter?
A: Cat litter and pet waste are accepted as Wet waste and must be placed loose in see-through green bags for curbside collection. Cat litter should be placed in the green see-through Wet bag. If you have a large quantity of pet waste to dispose of, and it fills a bag of its own (as might be the case with a backyard clean-up), you must place the green see-through bag full of pet waste within another green see-through bag. Double-bagging helps prevent bags from tearing open at the curb or during collection. Pet waste disposal options may vary in your location. Check with your local waste management service for more information specific to your area. .
