It is the first time a litter box in Australia has been sold online, after a “fatal” accident left a “huge” litterbox with a “very large” amount of cat feces in it.
The cat litter box was found by a local resident in a backyard, who found it at about 8pm on Tuesday, and contacted the Queensland Fire and Rescue Service (QFS).
The QFS is the state’s fire and rescue service and has a cat litter kit, which is used to dispose of litter boxes.
“The incident involved a cat that had gone into a cat hole, which then opened and left a litterbox that had a large amount of litter inside it,” a QFS spokesperson said.
“When the box was opened, there was a large quantity of cat faeces inside it, which we were unable to retrieve from the box.”
There was a lot of urine and feces that had been left inside the box, which had caused a serious accident.
“The litter box has since been taken to the QFS for examination and has since gone back into storage.
The Queensland Fire & Rescue Service said it was investigating what caused the incident, and was working with the cat litter supplier, the Cat Litter Company, to determine what will be done with the litterbox.”
It’s important that the customer and the operator of the litter box are aware of any potential hazards,” QFS said in a statement.”
If it is discovered that the litter is in a state where it could potentially cause harm to the public, we would encourage the customer to dispose or dispose of the product safely.
