Well, you can get horrible diseases from that type of cat too. That's not the only concern. If you aren't careful a baby will come out and grab you. lol

The infection is "asymptomatic in most healthy people" anyway, so it is still very likely I'm among the 50% infected.

Interesting article!
I've been around cats all of my 33 years of existing so I probably have it for sure. I thought I'd share it since many members here are quite fond of cats so I'm glad you enjoyed it. Hopefully you and others find it useful.


If you're healthy, you probably won't know you've contracted toxoplasmosis. Some people, however, develop signs and symptoms similar to those of the flu, including:

Body aches
Swollen lymph nodes

In people with weakened immune systems

If you have HIV/AIDS, are receiving chemotherapy or have recently had an organ transplant, a previous toxoplasma infection may reactivate. In that case, you're more likely to develop signs and symptoms of severe infection, including:

Poor coordination
Lung problems that may resemble tuberculosis or Pneumocystis jiroveci pneumonia, a common opportunistic infection that occurs in people with AIDS
Blurred vision caused by severe inflammation of your retina (ocular toxoplasmosis)

I'm a Christian. What is a Christian? Checkout my YouTube Playlist Understanding Salvation

Many believe they're going to heaven because they're a "good person." Are You a Good Person?

I'm not religious. Salvation isn't about religion. Religious people had Jesus killed.
