Yesturday I was playing with the dog after I was eatin my "after school" snack and the cats startin goin nuts so I had to get the doc since they were goin after her eyes. I went for the dog and the cat(tanner) went after me for gettin the dog. So he bit me in my butt so I screamed cause it hurt(went thru my jeans and all) it even made me bleed. So when I screamed it didnt help and so he bit my leg like crazy and I was really bleedin down there and already bruised..I was cryin like crazy. Ryan says its not good to get bit while pregnant cause the baby can get something. Is that true? Im new to all this stuff since its my first pregnancy so I thought you girls(ladies) could help me since u helped in the past. Thanks bunches
~heather,ryan, and baby(not here for another 4 months *tear*)

Cats can have a disease called toxoplamosis, but im not sure if you can get it from being bit (maybe from licking themselves and having the nastys in their mouth and then you gettin bit?) but you can get it from cleaning the kitty litter. Usually outdoor cats get it so as long as your cats are up to date on their shots and are strictly indoor cats I dont think there is anything to worry about... If they are outdoor cats (or have contact with any outdoor cats) you should call your doctor (or vet?) and see what kinds of things you and baby could have been exposed to.

I think ur reffering to the 'disease' most cats carry, toxoplamosis..But u get through cat feesies (lol sp?) so otherwords litterbox* but most people that are exposed to it are exposed b4 pregnancy and become immune.

Indoor cats are very clean sanitary animals. A dogs mouth is cleaner than a persons mouth and I believe its the same with cats too. Although outdoor cats are just as bad as raccoons and other nasty dirty animals.

I wont be living there. Ill be living at ryans house and staying at his house for good once the baby is here. I already told my mom when I come to visit if the cat goes nuts im gonna kick the cat. Dont get me wrong I love animals but if the cat bites my kid im gonna be one pissed off mom.
