Hey Admin,

Another suggestion- tee hee. This site needs an article on toxoplasmosis and the risks to pregnant women in owning cats. PLEASE. Because I tire endlessly of the excuse, "I need to get rid of my cat because I'm pregnant". I had wrote an excellent article years ago for a parenting site, but I've lost it since- LOL.

Anyways- you are more at risk gardening outdoors or handling raw meat then changing a litterbox. As long as you aren't munching on cat turds- you aren't going to catch toxo.

Figured ya'll do articles from time to time and this is an issue that needs to get out there online more often!

When I was pregnant for the first time, this was of course a concern as I had always had cats, and was a dog groomer at the time. My OB told me not to worry about it, chances were I had already been exposed to it and it was a very very minor concern. Keep the cats, but tell hubby he had to do all the litter box chores until the baby was a year old:Laugh:

Its one of those may things doctors like to scare people with, but really, if you are eating cat poo you gotta expect to get sick!!!
