  • Not sure if your having some kind of allergic reaction due to being pregnant, but don't change the litter box there is something in their urine I forget,but it can make you sick when your pregnant.

  • Your chances of getting sick from the poop in the litter box are the same as getting it from meat cooked wrong..... which is low, but still if you can make someone else go for it. I have one cat that makes my DH itchy and none of our others do. I just think he has different fur and it bothers him for some reason. Are you just itchy? I dont see that as a good reason to get rid of the cat. Unless you are having terrible hives up and down your body, thats different. Clip the nails every week or two if you can, they can't scratch you as bad that way. Also Benadryl is completely safe to take during pregnancy, so that might help you with the itching. Good luck!
