Pregnant women can be tested to determine if they have had prior exposure,
in which case they have acquired immunity and there is no risk. They can also
take precautions to avoid contact with fecal material from cats by wearing
gloves when gardening and cleaning the litter box.
Prevent the disease in your cat by keeping the cat from roaming and hunting.
Wear disposable plastic gloves when handling the cat’s litter. Remove stools
every day from the litter box. Dispose of the litter carefully so that others
will not come into contact with it. Clean and disinfect litter boxes often
using boiling water and a diluted bleach solution. Cover children’s sandboxes
when not in use to keep them from being used as a litter box by stray cats.
