Can I burn wood with cat pee on it?

I'm (30) weeks pregnant...
I think the ammonia will burn my nostrils, but others think it is 100% fine!
What do you think or know?

  • it will prob make your house stink .. but i would say it was safe! they say your not supposed to come into direct contact with animal pee or anything like that while pregnant .. but your not in direct contact so if you can handle the smell i guess so!

  • We are burning it outside! And the cats peed on the wood in a friends house, so they are pulling the wood up and remodeling!

  • If you are burning it outside I think you should be fine.... At first I thought you were wanting to burn it in the house LOL, was gonna say don't do it, pregnant or not- it would smell pretty bad LOL

  • We honestly couldn't even smell it, so I think the cat just sprayed on their floors...
    But, to be safe, I stayed in the garage and inside the house while it was burning!

  • I'd definitely stay away from any burning Construction wood. It can be loaded with a LOT more toxic things than just cat pee.

    In my city it's illegal to burn any construction materials for this very reason. You might want to check with your local codes, laws and ordinances.
