We add ours to the compost after first removing the poos. It breaks down very well and helps to balance the nitrogen content from grass clippings.
Its a funny thing, but it is unusual to use carnivore poo in the compost and garden. Herbivore seems to be fine though.
I would never use carnivore poo (or even the litter) in compost - carnivore poo contains a high level of pathogens and bacteria, most notably toxoplasmosis which can cause severe damage to the foetus in pregnancy - I have worked with children affected in this way.
Although I am well past the age where this would affect me personally, and I do try not to get too het up about neighbours' cats in my garden, I would never intentionally add this sort of dangerous contaminant to my compost.
Hi, I use a mix of wood shavings and wood pellets in my letter trays, if I remove the poop, can i put the wet litter into my compost bin and would it be ok to use on a veg patch after maybe 18 months - 2 years
As long as the pellets and shavings are not made from treated wood, then they should be fine after this period. You will probable find that they are totally composted by then.
