2. Contact with cat feces
Perhaps even more worrying is the fact that most people in the world will come into contact with cat feces on a semi-regular basis, without even knowing about it.
It gets everywhere, and certainly doesn’t just stay within the confines of the litter tray, even if you can convince your cat to use one. Trampled all over the place by our furry feline friends, it can prove very problematic in the spread of toxoplasmosis, given that a particular stage of the life cycle of the parasite, occurs in cat feces. The stage of the lie cycle, known as oocysts, are shed with a scattergun approach within cat feces.
Unfortunately for humans, and for any other red-blooded mammals within the vicinity, these nasty little things can cause the infection to transmit when they are ingested orally. Yep, that’s eating cat poo we’re talking about. Just a little bit, but it’s still eating cat poo.
