no, that just means changing the litter, and I have also read somewhere that if you must change the litter yourself, make sure it is done within 24 hours of the fecal matter being put there, that is how long it takes for the disease to start growing.

Ditto that.

Just all the more reason to put hubby in charge of changing the litter box

This is the same reason that lots of docs recommend careful gardening and wear gloves -- all kinds of neighborhood cats can be in your garden without you knowing it! mzdawnalina is right -- the key thing is get to the litter every 24 hours if you have to do it, rather than waiting.

Yea husband! I've already put him in charge of the boxes every time I'm in the 2ww -- no reason for us to do it when dh can do it! I figure if we have to get fat and have m/s, then they should get something crummy too!

They told us in our ob class not to clean the litter EVER. They also said to be careful of gardening because stray cats come and do their thing in your flowers or veggies.
