David and everyone, I have gotten pretty used to composting everything but plastics and cardboards/papers with crazy inks, but I am struggling with one final element: cat feces.

I've been told not to compost or chop'n'drop all kinds of other things my whole life until permaculture kind of woke me up to what I already knew but ignored, which was that everything works itself out in nature. For some reason though, I cannot bring myself to throw the cat poo into my compost.

Should I wait to move on using cat poo until I have a nice humanure system to which I can add it? I saw someone mention they use dog poo.

So, I just read all 7 pages of the DE conversation here and am wondering why Paul nor anyone else in the know has addressed the few people who raised question as to the sustainability of using (and telling masses of people to use) a product which is: 1) finite, to whatever degree, having taking this long to form, and 2) opposite of closing loops and providing for our own means

I am also interested in someone who knows addressing the post about mining one's own DE for consumption. I assume there is a nice, fancy machine at the DE "plant" where they process it to a specific granule size, thus trying to manufacture one's own would not work out great for consumption purposes?
