I'm pregnant and I have a cat. Do I need to worry about toxoplasmosis?
Cats can pass on a parasitic infection called toxoplasmosis that can cause infection in pregnant women and lead to birth defects. However, by taking simple hygiene precautions such as washing your hands after handling cats, the risk is very small.
