cat poop found in leaves-are the leaves no good for mulch?
This is probably a ridiculous question to ask but I really am not sure.
I have been slowly collecting leaves falling in our courtyard and the leaves on the sides of the road as mulch for my tomato plants.
Today I decided to go up on our roof (its flat) and there are enough leaves up there to fill around 3-4 65 gallon trash bags.
I collected one trash bag worth and went through about a 5th of it to rid them of the little twigs and to crush.
While doing this I found about 5-6 clumps of dried cat poo and I am assuming if a stray cat would poop amongst the leaves it would also pee.
I am assuming there is going to be more poop clumps in the big bag... should I throw all the leaves out or are they ok to use as mulch so long as I take out all of the cat poo?
