ause disease in sea otters and humans alike.
A young cat can shed up to 100 million oocysts - little egg-like structures - in its feces. All it takes is one oocyst to cause an infection of Toxoplasma gondii.
Largely, the parasite is asymptomatic in humans, but it can sometimes cause problems for infants born to infected mothers - including hearing loss, mental disability and blindness. People with compromised immune systems, especially those who have HIV/AIDS, may also develop serious complications.

"I sorry Mr. Otter."
How about we feed liberals with cat feces to protect those poor, cute sea otters?
“Chain of cat feces” = terrible name for a punk band.
Make you think twice before having a cup of Kopi Luwak.
Chain of cat feces can’t be good for anyone.
Didn’t Aretha Franklin sing that song ?
Sorry, cat lovers; this is why cats are vile, vile, vile.
How about “Fecal Cat Chum”
My cats are very offended by your statement!
That’s it....I am calling.....ATTAAAAACKK WWWAAAATCH!
Dohmer? Is that you?
Not a bad idea Max.
Speaking of cats, of my dads cats is just as spoiled as the dog. The cat hunts. The other one is still shy around people. Someday she may come around.
Life is challenging.
Isn’t that the cutest? I want a Scottish Fold so bad but don’t have a decent setup to have a cat.
It should be emphasized that the cute house cats shown in the photo accompanying the posted article are very unlikely to be infected with the parasite; only about one percent of cats are infected. So cat owners in general shouldn't become overly up tight about this.
“Sorry, cat lovers; this is why cats are vile, vile, vile.”
Not true! All you need is a better recipe.
This is BS put out by NOAA and the communists at the Monterey Marine Sanctuary.
It is globalist garbage deigned to break the bonds of property rights into a million pieces so they won’t exist in this country anymore.
The basis of their claim is the watershed is more important than any man made boundary. If you allow your pet to ‘go’ outdoors then you are harming the watershed, and so your right to your own property is superseded by their need to control you.
By controlling you they can enforce new building and health codes on you, which can force you off your property by expense, or they can tax you, kind of like the impervious surface tax going around some counties to punish you if you have too much concrete or asphalt, in their view, in your landscape.
Its nothing but another globalist attack on YOU!

Thank you for a voice of reason. I think journalist wake up in the morning and ask themselves, “how can we scare our readers today?” I was a NICU nurse. By my 4th pregnancy I was told not to eat cold cuts (listeria), no sushi (thank God I wasn’t Japanese), and I couldn’t touch my house cat. A beacon to brainwashing. If I lived in China I might actually heed that advice, but in over regulated U.S.A., not so much. I ate uncooked pork sausage off a pizza as a kid, and uncooked bacon once. So far haven’t developed trichinosis. Sadly, thanks to Obamao, we might have to start paying attention to these warnings as we descend into 4th world status.
Chain chain chain...Chain of poo...
including hearing loss, mental disability and blindness....Shiite. I thought it was just old age, but Mr. Fluffy is out to get me.
I'm not entirely sure we can trust the objectivity of the source...
It was “Chain of stools”.
