ugh doc won't answer! please help!!

Today my cat accidentally scratched me, we got her from pet Co as a baby and she's never been around other cats she's been outside once for like five minutes and never caught any rodents or birds or anything butI'm scared she could still possibly have toxoplasmosis and possibly give it to me cuz they use their claws to scrape the poop in their litter box after they poop...I'm 34 weeks i left a message for my doc and the nurse at the hospital had no answer...i need reassurance/help :(

Yes but that's only if you sniff it hardcore lol. The only reason why I know is because I have a kitten. & he's now a large cat. He was inside pet but I took him out because he was messy with the couch and his litter and toys. But the pee is not that bad. That's only if it stays for long periods of time. It penetrates in the air and it becomes smelly but we don't realize how toxic it really is. that's why doctors don't recommend changing litter boxes without masks or gloves. But don't worry. You're okay.

I would be freaking out if my kitty did that too but I would say if you used peroxide or something to clean it out well you should be alright!

Just keep an eye on it for infection. It's highly unlikely ur cat has been exposed to toxo. Being an inside cat. They get it from like u said  eating small animals. (wild). just keep it clean was it a bad scratch or just a lil?

As long as you washed it out you are fine :-) there is always a small risk for cat scratch fever but that's really only if you didn't wash up and your cat is dirty which it's not. Your baby is also fully formed now so no worries. Try to relax momma :-)

With my first born I.was 10th weeks and got bitten and scratched by my sisters indoor cat..never been outside..ever.. the next day it was super red, hot and swollen. I ended up having to take antibiotics and go to the Dr every 3 days till it was healed! It was the scariest thing ever.. it ended healing just left a nasty scar and the baby was okay! But definitley go to the Dr if its red and or hot!!
