So, are you supposed to not clean the litter box while bfing as well as pregnant?
Or do I get to resume that lovely task?
so I think that means pooper scooping is OK...

DS, 10/07. Allergies: peanut, egg, wheat. We've added dairy back in. And taken it back out again. It causes sandpaper skin with itchy patches and thrashing during sleep. Due w/ #2 late April, 2012.
but even if your cat is indoor/outdoor, as long as you don't let the feces sit in the box for more than 24 hours, and as long as you wash your hands and/or wear gloves, you should be fine!
To get toxo, first your cat needs to have it. Then it needs to sit in the feces outside of the cat for 24 hours, then you need to ingest it.
There is a greater chance of catching toxo from handling raw meat or digging in the earth than from your cat!
Thanks for the replies! I'm thinking that I'll resume helping with it, but make sure I wash my hands real good afterward. My cat has epilepsy, so he sometimes goes outside under supervision, but he doesn't have free rein.
If I wait for others, *ahem* DH, it would get nasty and the house would be a biohazard.
Hey I don't mind- seems fair as I take care of all that goes into the family- why shouldn't he oversee what comes out
