What is Toxoplasmosis?
Toxoplasmosis is a disease caused by a parasite known as Toxoplasma gondii
. As it is known to affect unborn babies, some pregnant women are understandably concerned. Recent studies suggest that, while cats are involved in part of the parasite's life cycle, human contact with cats does not increase the risk of infection to humans.
It is important to practice good hygiene when looking after your cat and preparing food to eliminate the spread of disease. This is even more important when you are pregnant. To find out more about Toxoplasmosis, watch our video below or read our guide.
