how bad is it...

To clean the cats liter box ONE time. My finace does it everyday when he gets home from work, but its over time season so he wont be home for awhile and it HAS to be done asap. We have 2 cats who pee in the floor if the boxes are too full. Like what is it we should be around, something we shouldnt touch or smell? I know its in their poop. Just curious how bad itd be to do it one time.

Put on gloves. Try wrap your face with a bandana,or,something. I honestly don't know enough information,but I know,it's dangerous and considered a risk to the baby: (

Ammonia can be harmful but cover your face and wear gloves. The real risk is contracting toxoplasmosis. Which is food borne but also can be caused by exposure to feces. I have a cat, and scoop the box every couple days. Its not a big deal.
