Will it ever end?

It's me again!  I took my cat to the vet yesterday for her yearly check up.  Do I need to be worried about catching toxoplasmosis from the examination room? Or is this disease only contracted from cats by direct contact with cat feces? (meaning it couldn't have been on the counter, touched my clothes, I touched my clothes and then touched my mouth later....yah I know it sounds crazy).  I'm just worried

Take care

Hi again!
Not to worry -- this is just contracted by eating raw meat or direct contact with feces.  You should be fine!  Good luck!
