Cat Litter!
Sun, 09-09-2012 - 11:17am

Okay, I've always heard not to mess with cat litter while pregnant... but I'm here alone for a few more months, and I do believe I'll have to change the cat littler at least a few times! :smileytongue:
So, should I wear gloves and a mask? Is it airborn or is it through skin?
I should add she's a totally inside cat, so idk if that makes a difference

I have had cats and pretty much changed litter boxes throughout all my pregnancies... Some people are super causious, others not so much, same with docs... From what I have gathered if you've had your cat for awhile, it's an indoor cat...then you may already have immunity to toxoplasmosis... I would say that you should be fine with gloves and a mask and washing your hands...    I have heard that you can ask your doc to do a test to determine if you have an immuntity or not... baby center has a pretty good article on it..Though with anything you look up, results can be scary.... HTH...
