I am wondering why it's not safe to empty the cat box while you are pregnant? Also why it's not a good idea to take hot baths and hot showers? Thanks

You can contract toxoplasmosis from changing dirty cat litter. Do a google on and you will find many articles about the dangers. --- Pregnant women can take hot baths and hot showers for relaxation as long as it is not too hot. Hot tubs and saunas MUST be avoided as you run a higher risk of having a baby with birth defects due to the extreme temperature increase that your body will undergo. Also, you need to be careful that you do not faint from heat exposure, as some women feel lightheaded while pregnant and heat can make it worse.

Hi, toxoplasmosis is a parasite and some of the dangers of it are eye and brain damage, especially in the baby and symptoms are not always there from birth. So its best to keep away from your kittens all together during pregnancy. Also make sure any meat you eat is thoroughly cooked because underdone meats can carry the parasite too.
