It's my understanding that the only risk associated between cats/kittens and pregnant women is toxoplasmosis. Even then, if the cat's an indoor only cat and UTD on all vaccinations, there's no need to worry. The risk comes when a pregnant woman changes the litter of an outdoor cat. Then there is a chance that 1. the cat could have toxoplasmosis and 2. it could transfer to the pregnant woman through the dirty litter.

So, in my expert (haha) opinion, it's not an issue if the kittens vaccinated and is an indoor cat. If you want to be extra careful, don't change the litter. Btw, I've had two (indoor, UTD on shots) cats with my last 3 kids and have changed the litter throughout (unfortunately) and have had no problem.


Post a pic if/when you get one!
