Cat Tales ~ 'Doggone Good Potting Soil'

Did you know that it is estimated that the 166 million cats and dogs in the U.S. produced about 15.4 million tons of droppings in 2011?

Mommy has been reading the newspaper again. This time she found an article about a local company, EnviroWagg, that takes the waste from dogs and turns it into potting soil! No $h!t! {{snicker}}

EnviroWagg has begun working with a local animal shelter to dispose of the 2.5 tons of droppings {{eeewwww}} the shelter generates every year. At EnviroWagg the droppings are mixed with sawdust, straw, pine bark, and other carbon sources, spiked with enzyme and heated to 145 degrees. Then it is tested to make sure it is pathogen-free. And the result is less landfill waste and some "Doggone Good" potting soil mix. 

Finally! Those silly Doggies are good for something!

Jeez, that's one factory I'm glad I don't work in, especially when they heat up the doggy-doo. Ewwwww!

Wow. With the amount of animals we have, perhaps I could start a side business? :)
