outside cat question
Hi, I live on the edge of some woods, and our cats are outside cats. What this means is that they have their cat flaps, and they go out and do their business, and we never need to worry about litter trays, which is a nice luxury.
But, my wife worries that having all the cat droppings up there in the woods is somehow not healthy, either in terms of groundwater contamination, or in terms of the risk of walking on it.
Does anyone know if this is truly something to worry about? In my view, animals have been doing their business in the woods forever. But it would be nice to hear an objective outside viewpoint.
