Need to know. Thanks. (I'm using Arm&Hammer Baking Soda cat litter-clumping)

Some research suggests that when cats ingest it (through their licking) it can clump in their digestive system, causing health problems ranging from minor to lethal.

I believe there are also concerns about how the clay is mined.

Can't dig up links right now--maybe someone else will provide.

To be safe, we avoid clumping clay and use corn- or wheat-based clumping litters instead.
