The parasite, which is excreted by cats in their feces, is called Toxoplasma gondii (T. gondii or Toxo for short) and is the microbe that causes toxoplasmosis—the reason pregnant women are told to avoid cats’ litter boxes. Since the 1920s, doctors have recognized that a woman who becomes infected during pregnancy can transmit the disease to the fetus, in some cases resulting in severe brain damage or death.


It's accurate. So is this:

Rather get toxo from my cat than the plague from a dog.

I've been tested to toxoplasmosis.. a few years or so ago (actually 4 years or so) when I was having some issues with my mental health, because my Dr knew I was obsessed with my cats. I was negative for it, fyi.

My current cat Fiancee is negative for toxoplasmosis too. Testing is important in any relationship.
