In brief: Prevent toxoplasmosi

If the cat is infected with toxoplasmosis (virus) , you can get infected.
The feces of the cat contain the virus and if you claen the litter box and touch your mouth you can become infected with the virus. If no one is there to helpp, avoid contact with the feces, wear gloves and of course thorough handwashing when done.
