  • Toxoplasmosis from cats, worms are transmittable to humans, cats can actually carry chlamydia in their eyes. But people in your house can bring those same things in. health care.

    Animals who are cared for, house trained, and well behaved are a great help, I think. I couldn't imagine walking off braxton hicks contractions without my dogs pacing the floor with me. And they are really empathetic when I'm having pregnant munchies!

  • False, they just say that you should not change or clean cat litter because their poop can contain toxoplasmosis but if you use gloves and a mask while doing it you are fine.

  • If you allow your pets to take a crap and piss in your house then yes. All you will smell is amonia (sp) thats not good for anyone.

  • Cats can. You are not to change the litter box. However, dogs can be great pets! Just remember to take care of them and not let them use the house as a potty.
