Can you put cheese in the compost?

No, you shouldn't put cheese in the compost pile. Dairy products, greasy or oily foods, and meat attract foraging wildlife. Generally, once a hungry critter finds a food source, the stop becomes permanent on the animal's nightly rounds.

Why can't you put cheese in the compost?
Because of the fat content and animals being attracted to the rotting cheese. The decaying vegetable compost is normal smelling to animals but the smell of rotting meat or dairy products, besides smelling bad to your nose would get the local animals all lined up for a free meal. Meat and cheeses and fats in general rot much slower than vegetation. They also make your compost stink and hang around too long.
