    Default Ttc and dealing with kitty litter?

    I hope this is the right section & someone can help me out,
    My partner and I are currently trying to concieve a baby and we have two indoor kitties one of whom is VERY finicky and while **** on the floor when the litter box is substandard,

    This is not normally an issue as I deal with the litter box however since we have started ttc I told him it had to be his job (we discussed this prior to ttc and he agreed, we also BOTH choose to get the cats)

    However ever since it switched to his job the box is often unclean (which makes the house STINK) and I end up just dealing with it as we have another child and it is NOT healthy for him to be in a house that stinks of cat poo and pee,

    my problem is that as it has been left I have to also clean the whole area as the cat has pee'd on the ground near the box,

    I know it is NOT a recommended thing but does anyone have any experiance or what I can do to limit the risk of exposure to a potential pregnancy?

    what kind of measures are required to stop that risk?

    I would highly recommend having a talk to you DH and convince him to do it when you ask, but if you HAVE to do it gloves and a dust mask would be your best option.

    I know exactly what you mean because when I was pregnant it was a constant battle with DH to change the litter tray.

    Gloves and a mask. If they've always been indoor cats you've basically got zero risk so I wouldn't worry too much!
