I find this article online about cat ladies being at higher risk for suicide. It say:
"Researchers discovered that women who are infected with Toxoplasma gondii (T. gondii) — found not only in cat poop, but undercooked meat and unwashed vegetables — are possibly at a higher risk of suicide."

Possibly, maybe, could-be...And they go on to say that one third of the world is infected with the parasite which can be gotten in places other than cat pooh. I mean, this just a seriously vicious attack on cat kind. We are being a victim of racial profiling.
More cat haters out to get us and our loving caring cat ladies.
I think most responsible cat staffers know the danger of handling cat pooh and wear household gloves or some similar protection when they clean out our box, just like when they clean out their own toilet. Maybe they should do reverse study, see if depressed people more like to be infected with bacteria because they don't take proper care with their toilet habits and foods.
Just a thought.
On a side note, Sparkle cat want to know if I watch sky booms from UTB. I do not. I watch them with my bean.
My bean is very, very brave and not afraid of anything, including the sky booms, and so when I am with her, I am not afraid either.
We live by the river and can see the sky booms from our front yard, so every year we have friends for Bar-B-Que and then we sit and watch sky booms. I sit on my bean and am not afraid at all!
