Just rigged up a compost bin from some old pallets I found in the back of the shed that came with our place (officially my first homesteading project as we just moved in last weekend) and Iâm wondering about dog/cat waste in the bin. I did a search on this forum and seem to find conflicting results. Is it that I can compost the dog feces or cat litter for the non-consumable gardens (i.e. flower) but not for compost that is going to be used on consumable vegetation (i.e. vegetable/ herb/ fruit/ nut gardens)? What is the problem with it? Is there some science to know here or is the taboo all just hearsay and hocus pocus? Thanks in advance.
