Vitamin Ee-ew.

Too tired and deadline-frazzled to write much these days. (And my blog is still broken, which is depressing.)

Just one question: Would it be wrong to take a prenatal vitamin that has been licked by a cat? I had the pill sitting next to my computer, and G. decided to have a taste.

He didn't like it anymore than I do.

I know I should throw the darn thing out. I only hesitate because they're so expensive.

My vet told me that kitty-bites are amazingly dangerous, because cats have tons of icky bacteria in their mouths. For that reason it might be worth tossing this one pill. Bummer.

YES. Because toxoplasmosis is transmitted through cat poop, and cats lick their paws (which step in the dirty litter) and their, er, moneymakers, so it's very, very likely that there's fecal matter in your cat's mouth.

Please don't take it.

Good advice. Thank you.
Don't worry. I think it was the late hour and the fact that that was the second-to-last vitamin in the bottle that caused me to have a moment of, "Well, maybe..."

Hee, it's good these sensible souls wrote in before me, b/c my response was hey, why not? (But then, my cats regularly lick my face, and while I try to keep them from licking my mouth, they do in fact do so sometimes...) Maybe it's dogs' mouths that are so much cleaner than ours, then?

You mean there's no ten-second slobber rule?
