You're right (about the scooping the stool - I'm not sure about the flushability) - You scoop the stool out, and the pellets that have been soaked turn to sawdust. Shake the box whenever you scoop so the sawdust goes to the bottom, and when there is a significant amount of sawdust or any odor, change out the box. I've never tried to flush it, as I'm paranoid about stopping up the pipes.
I think the reason some cats don't like it initially is that the pellets are rather large, so the litter texture is quite a bit different from what most cats are used to. Most cats seem to prefer very sandy litter, but I
don't, because it ends up being tracked everywhere
- I'd even find the stuff on my pillows! The feline pine stuff doesn't track very much, compared to most litters.
If you want to start using the feline pine litter, the recommendation on the bag is to start by mixing small amounts of the pine litter in with the regular litter, gradually increasing the amount of pine used until it's all pine (be sure to take it slow).
