Toxoplasmosis and Cat waste
Cat waste can contain the parasite Toxoplasma gondii. If humans become infected with it, we're normally able to fight it off, but those with compromised immune systems may not be able to. Symptoms from parasitic infection can be flu-like — aches, pain, fever — or people can develop the disease toxoplasmosis. Toxoplasmosis can cause fatal development disorders, loss of eyesight, brain damage, premature birth and death. Many water treatment plants aren't designed to handle those kinds of pollutants, let alone a parasite like T. gondii; they're designed to handle human waste.
