It's called toxoplasmosis. It generally does not affect healthy adults, but can cause brain and eye damage to an unborn baby. It is a parasite that are in cat feces, generally in cats that are outdoor cats are most infected, but it can make its way to indoor cats too. It is not the litter, be warned as it warms up, cats do tend to crap in flower beds. ALWAYS wear gloves if gardening, or have some one else do it for you. I would stay away from the cat box all together.
