After many years of advising pregnant women to avoid cleaning their cat's litter box, medical experts say new research suggests soon-to-be moms not only should change the kitty litter but perform the task as frequently as possible.

"It's a huge change in direction. Now I even advise my pregnant patients to offer to clean the neighbor's cat boxes, too," said Dr. Gummo Schiltz, a self-proclaimed expert on human reproduction whose doctorate is actually in meteorology.

Until recently, doctors thought changing the litter box could expose pregnant women to a harmful parasite call toxoplasma gondii, which, according to Schiltz, is not related to the late Mahatma.

Readers of Yo Momma, a blog for expectant mothers, generally supported the change, although one woman wrote, "I HATE changing the litter box. I only got pregnant so I wouldn't have to do it. I hate kids, too."
