Cat owners: Be careful with kitty litter

Posted: Updated:

A warning before you change the kitty litter -- cat feces can cause a harmful parasitic disease called toxoplasmosis.

Toxoplasmosis is a parasitic disease caused by the protozoan toxoplasma gondii and can infect humans and cause serious birth defects and neurological problems, and disease experts from Johns Hopkins are calling for a national health campaign to educate the public and properly clean up after America's felines.

FOX 9 medical expert Dr. Archelle Georgiou discusses the parasite and what you can do to protect yourself.
