My DF's parents have been telling me all day that I need to get rid of our kitties. Here is there reason... They have a cousin who got cat scratch fever while pregnant and because of that her son has downs syndrome...
Sure. I'm not an expert on downs syndrome at all, but a disease like that isn't going to throw in an extra chromosome. And even if it could, it sure as heck won't do it at 20 weeks
I wish people who at least research stuff before freaking pregnant women out about everything. They also think we should get rid of all the other pets (none of which are dangerous to pregnant women) because "animals aren't good for pregnancy and they want me to have a good pregnancy". I told them he is completely healthy and looked perfect, but they still think he could develop 3 heads or something.
