    During my pregnancy should I avoid changing my cat’s litterbox?

    I'm 26 years old, pregnant, and have a cat. Is it safe if I change my cat's litter tray? I live alone, so there isn't anyone else that can do it, and I live in an apartment. I'm worried it could be harmful to the baby.

    It’s best to avoid changing cats’ litterboxes. If you have to do it, it’s best to wear rubber gloves and a mask, and wash your hands thoroughly afterwards.
