Composting Cat Litter

I was thinking yesterday about recycling or composting all of our trash and we had a discussion in the comments about compostable cat litter. I've learned that even if the litter it's self is compostable (like Yesterday's News would be, since it's just made from newpapers), you can't add the cat waste to a compost pile. Cat waste often contains a harmful bacteria, and so it isn't good to use as fertilizer. That's also why pregnant women and people with immune definciencies should never clean a cat box.

Here is a site on composting and a little down the page is a chart of what can be composted and what should not be.

Take a look at Nature Mill products. It is a bit expensive. My wife and I were considering the product: http://www.naturemill.com/products.html

Composting is one of the best option to recycle the waste and thanks for coming up with this idea.

I have to endorse the nature mill product as well. It might seem a little pricey but its great for apartment composters.

I think there might be a safe way to compost cat waste but that it probably involves managing the heat in the compost pile to remove the possible danger of bacteria and parasites esp. toxoplasmosis?
