The big question is why can we not somehow end our culture's addiction to keeping cats as pets? Or at least find a way to ensure they and their owners (servants, staff?) are not infected. Isn't there a hue and a cry whenever any other popular part of our culture (for example, tobacco, trans fats) poses a significant health risk? How is it that cats are somehow immune to criticism but Toxoplasma gondii is not?
