Owning a cat while being pregnant should not be a scary or stressful experience. Pregnancy should be all about that ‘glow’ and late night Nutella with pickle cravings. For most woman pregnancy is a beautiful thing but it can be over shadowed by the many questions and concerns in regards to the safety of them and their child. A parasite called Toxoplasmosis is one of them. While the infection generally causes a mild, symptomless illness in people with healthy immune systems, it’s risky during pregnancy because the parasite may infect the placenta and your unborn baby causing the risk of birth defects and possible death.

What is Toxoplasmosis?

Toxoplasmosis is caused by a protozoan (one-celled) parasite known as Toxoplasma gondii. These parasites are usually found in cat feces and can be transmitted from pet to owner through the litter box and even soil if not careful.

Cat’s contract Toxoplasmosis by eating infected rodents, birds and other small animals. So keeping your cat indoors throughout your term and only feeding them commercial food or well cooked meat reduces the risks significantly.

 

Poopy Cat provides the perfect litter box solution to your household. A cleverly designed, hygienic and environmentally conscious product that is safe for you and you and your whole family to use. The covered litter box ensures that your cats waste is contained and not spread to other parts of your house (sadly we can’t say the same about all the hair!) but once the Cat litter box is unfolded and constructed there is no need to have any direct physical contact with your cat’s litter. The disposable cardboard scoops provided allow you to remove your cats waste and dispose of it safely and immediately. It’s as easy as 1, 2, poo!

It is highly recommended to clean out your cat’s litter tray daily even though the Toxoplasmosis cysts in the litter box require 48 hours to become infective. For extra precaution wear disposable gloves and wash hands immediately after use with an antibacterial soap. At the end of the week, simply close the litter tray and throw away! It’s that easy! Poopy Cat has the perfect and inexpensive solution for you and your family’s health.
