Many people ask, is it dangerous for pregnant women to scoop the litter box?

This has a lot of truth, but there is NO need to get rid of your cat.

Toxoplasmosis is a parasite that a cat can carry without showing signs. This parasite, which can be acquired by handling their feces, is a concern for pregnant women because it can be detrimental to a developing fetus. While it is best for someone other than the pregnant woman to scoop the litter box, it is generally safe if scooped at least once every 24 hours.

Pregnant women must also be cautious of this parasite when gardening and handling raw meat. Wearing gloves is best.
