“you can get toxoplasmosis from kitty poop. you can change it but you must use gloves to be safe.”
not just gloves.
You’re not supposed to inhale [breath, smell etc] the fecal matter (or urine) either — if you can smell it that means there is particulate matter in the air which you are in fact inhaling. Since the lungs are one great big mucous membrane made up of capillaries, anything that you inhale goes directly to your bloodstream.
THAT’S why you aren’t supposed to change the cat box when you’re pregnant.
If I absolutely had to do it I’d be wearing an N95 hazmat mask [personally-if I were pregnant].
sorry for the OT… glad you were able to have a constructive talk with your husband about this.
