Here is a prior post on the subject of cat litter in drains -


https://answers.angieslist.com/clumpi...


For a kitchen sink, basically it is not worth trying to snake it - I would remove the trap and the tube from the other drain/garbage disposal and clean that out, then snake from the trap down into the drain pipe to clear out adhered material in the drop pipe.


If it went down the garbage disposal, I would use vinegar while the disposal is running to try to dissolve the buildup.


For professional - Plumbing - Drain Cleaning would be your Search the List category.


Then don't dump down the drain again, both for drain clogging and sanitary/feline disease transmission prevention reasons - dispose of in the household trash, or if in a rural area maybe dig some 2-3 foot postholes in the far corner of yard away from dog and child access and where nothing will ever be built, keep covered when not in use, and dispose of in there as needed, with a bit of hydrated (outhouse) lime and a thin dirt covering after each dumping, moving along in a line of holes over the years.
