Are you not worried by the toxoplasmosis parasite that is likely in your cat's fecal matter???

As long as you are washing the produce well, it shouldn't be much of a problem. But I would stop using the dog and cat waste as fertilizer. It's one thing for a stray cat to poop in your garden, but using it as a direct fertilizer is not recommended. Especially considering their diets are full of meats which don't fully digest and are contained in their waste which then takes a while to break down... Probably where the stink is coming from....
