My bloodworm came back yesterday, and it showed I have never been exposed. I was pretty shocked.
I have five outdoor cats who bring home mice every night all summer long. I work at a vet. There are almost always five cats on my desk at work. I grew up with outdoor cats, my job was to change the cat box. I spent summers volunteering to help out in an animal shelter (often changing boxes!) I have spent years gardening without gloves, not stressing about hand washing. Before I was pregnant, I often would pick up a little half dead mouse from the cat and release it..with my bare hands. Yet I was still never exposed?!?
I don't change the cat box in any case, these days. But has anyone come back as having been exposed? I would have been certain that I'd been exposed. I guess not?
