In brief: Pregnant Moms only

Toxoplasmosis generally causes no harm to non-pregnant females, only to pregnant moms to be and fetus'.
It is transmitted to humans through emptying the litter box, which we ask pregnant moms to avoid. A blood test called a torch titer can identify antibodies/infection in pregnant moms.
