No, it is not a good idea to use this compost on the veggie garden, though you can use it on flowering plants...just be sure to wear gloves. Both dog and cats are prone to parasites which can become a threat to us. Here is more information that should help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/composting/manures/cat-feces-in-compost.htm
