To make a long story short, last night DH and I found a lost cat in our neighborhood. We carried her to our friend's house where she spent the night, and this afternoon I took her to our vet to get her scanned for a microchip and tested for a respiratory infection (she had been sneezing). I spent a lot of time handling her yesterday and today (including after she pooped in the cat carrier on the way to the vet and got it all over her paws). The vet tech said since I grew up with cats that I shouldn't worry about toxoplasmosis too much, since I have probably already been exposed to it. I still can't help feeling really nervous and guilty about potentially exposing our embryo to it.
Right now I'm trying to figure out if I should go get myself tested, and possibly treated, just to be on the safe side, and whether I should refrain from handling the cat from now on. It just didn't even occur to me last night that carrying her and taking her to the vet could put us at risk. I have been very careful, and showered immediately after getting home yesterday and today, but I'm still anxious about this.
Does anyone have advice or info or experience with this? Thanks in advance.
