Its not the smell of it, its the possibility of a parasite being in the feces, causing toxoplasmosis. If you do have to clean the pan yourself make sure to wash hands good after and wear gloves.

And cat poo only has toxoplasmosis in it if the cat has toxoplasmosis.  Some cats go their whole lives and never get toxoplasmosis.
