okay this sounds stupid I know.
But...we have a cat and she was upstairs and got upset (she's a little on the crazy side) anyways she peed on some clothes in the bathroom floor...and so I put them in the wash and I smelled them of course to see if it was out or not...and it wasn't...and I was just wondering if smelling cat pee could hurt the baby?
I don't clean the cat box or anything..I have someone else do that...but the smell of cat urine...is that the same as toxoplasmosis?
so now I have to wash the clothes again....
just curious ....I am sure plenty of people why pregnant have smelled cat pee...and are fine...but I just don't want her to be blind ro deaf..
Yeah, sometimes that cat pee can smell SO strong, that I worry. Even if dh hasn't cleaned the box in 2 days, you can smell it often (just after they go--we have 2 cats). But anyways, like the pp said, I'm pretty sure it's the poop that can be harmful, so I wouldn't worry. Good luck getting that stain out of your clothes!!
Don't worry about it. Pretty much smelling anything in your house, unless you're mixing bleach and ammonia, is pretty safe to smell. The only concern about smells is that you don't want to get nauseous from it... oh, and you don't want to be overcome by fumes so much so that the fumes displace oxygen. I highly doubt the cat pee, on once-washed clothes nonetheless, can cause any problems. Try to relax a little bit.
