Dangers Of Using The Same Eating Utensils With Cats?
Good afternoon. I want to ask, is there any danger if we eat using plates that are used for cat food? R nI don’t have any cutlery, cm people at home I like to feed cats using my cutlery … plates and bowls used for family meals are used to eat cats then washed n used for family food again .. a sponge for washing cat food used is also the same as a sponge for washing family food utensils. Honestly, I’m actually very amused and disgusted. Is this dangerous? Or am I just being overly and fussy? R nPlease help answer y .. beforehand thanks ..
Using utensils together with cats should not be done. If the cutlery is washed clean, the possibility of contracting a disease is actually quite small. However, using utensils together with cats still has the risk of contracting a disease such as gastrointestinal infections, to Toxoplasma. Especially if the cat is a wild cat.
Gastrointestinal infections can cause symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, fever, and abdominal pain. While Toxoplasma infection in most cases is asymptomatic, Toxoplasma infection can be chronic. Toxoplasma infection in women can cause recurrent miscarriages.
So you should avoid using cutlery at the same time as cats. Wash your hands when you eat.
