Mineral rock salt by far. Sand cat litter only gives better traction on snow or ice.

That sounds like a typical bite from a "black fly". They are very common in the northern states and Canada.

Yes, it is real. I did a "snopes" search to verify.

Yes, at most recycle bins. It would go in the "plastics" bin.

What is the question?

Cats | Answered on Mar 16, 2017

A cat reaches the approximate human age of 15 during its first year, then 24 at age 2. Each year thereafter, it ages approximately 4 "cat years" for every calendar year. So a 5-year-old feline would be approximately 36 in cat years. Your kitty is very old, if measured by these figures. I found this info on the Internet. Google "how can I tell how old my cat is in human years" and you'll get a lot of information. Good luck.

If you have more than one cat then you must always have at least one more tray than cats and if some don't get on then make sure the victim has a tray in a location it feels safe from being disturbed. If you only have one cat then make sure you have at least two trays in different locations and make sure they are away from food bowls. Try different types, I have cats that won't use covered ones, cats that only use covered ones, cats that don't like covered ones with doors. I have cats that like to 'perch' so need a good heavy tray that won't tip if they perch on the edge. I even have one that will only use an empty tray ie nothing in it, maybe newspaper. Litter type can make a big difference; some like granular, some like clay, some like wood or paper, some like fine powder. Make it deep. Here is a tip, chicken feed pellets make a good litter and is much cheaper! Much of the above comes from the fact that cats don't like dirty trays so make sure they always have clean trays even if you must clean it several times per day and change often. Many also don't like to use a tray that others use hence the 'extra' tray suggestion if you have a few cats. With all these tips I still see the occasional mistake so my last tip is go to Tescos and buy the 'Rug Doctor' wipes. They are often beyond the tills where they rent out carpet cleaning machines. They are fantastic at removing odours and smells (I should not have to tell you that leaving the odour will attract repeat fouling) They also do a miraculous job of removing all stains.

I gave it to a raccoon and it worked, so give it a try.

if the cat has been doing this for a while then it is not harmful to it or it would be showing some distress or sickness
take it to a vet as it may not be getting all that it needs in the diet and you may have to change the diet to a better balanced meal

Yes, they can be infected by the bite
