THE MENAGERIE AT THE PORCH
CATS

THAN YOU CAN GET FROM CATS

And yet it should be recalled: no matter how sacred our four-legged friends, they can unconsciously, involuntarily, to bring grief to the family, where they live,- "give" owners diseases. About rabies, strigosum versicolor and worms heard everything. But it is not the speech. Talking about toxoplasmosis, which mostly lies on the cat's conscience. For adults the organism Toxoplasma gondii not afraid - be unwell, as with influenza. But for future children, or rather, for pregnant women microbe terrible: newborn possible deep brain damage, blindness...

Alas, toxoplasmosis is not uncommon: in the United States each year, 500 babies are born crippled. What's the matter? That's what. Research conducted in Scotland showed that in the cat body is formed incredibly stable form of the germ, not reactive nor heat, nor cold, nor disinfectants. Once a cat's excrement, say, in a pond or sand, microbe years saves. Great he feels and animal skin. And, petting a furry pet, a pregnant woman should remember that after you do this, be sure to wash your hands so that the microbe has not reached the mouth.

Well, where is take Toxoplasma cats? They become infected by eating mice, birds or raw meat.
