Same here!! Can't tell you how many times I wake up and push my cat off my head or her trying to sleep under my chin. And on the funny side she does act like she sees something in the ceiling corner of a room or does this growling thing at an invisible entity!!!!

I totally agree. My cat also sleeps on my head everynight and has for years. So much so that my hair is permanently flat on top of my head.
I read you can only get toxoplasmosis from changing litter boxes and touching feces, which is why they advise pregnant women not to change the boxes. But it is definitely okay to pet your kitty.

The article says it's a protozoa found in the cat's feces.
Just dont handle or consume the poo and you'll be fine lol
It's a shame some cat owners are not responsible for their pets.

My cat is more likely to make me go crazy by sleeping on my head all the time.
Although cats are often blamed for spreading toxoplasmosis, contact with raw meat is a more significant source of human infections in many countries, and fecal contamination of hands is a greater risk factor
