I spoke with someone awhile ago who said something that cats are deadly to goats. I really like cats in the barn for rodent control..... But the next person I mentioned cats to said to "vaccinate your cat for distemper which will prevent illness in the goats". So I look that up and can't find a thing that says distemper passes to goats but that toxoplasmosis can be a BIG problem. My question is, is distemper a problem? AND I had kind of a thought, if toxoplasmosis is the problem....why not have a litter box in an area of the barn which is easy to clean so there is no chance the cat would defecate in the hay thereby infecting the goat with toxoplasmosis?
