I have Crohn's and I get remicade infusions every 8 weeks for the past 3 years and it keeps it under control quite well. I've been thinking of getting a cat and I just wanted to know if that's a wise thing to do. I know there are basic things I should do like wash my hands after cleaning the litter box (duh! who DOESN'T wash their hands after cleaning a litter box, whether they have Crohn's or not?!) But is it generally safe to have pets when using Remicade? I don't really get sick. In fact I think I had a cold once in the last 3 years and it didn't last any longer than it normally does. Any thoughts from anyone? Anyone here have pets? Do they make you sick? I've Googled for advice but I just keep getting links to pages about cats and dogs who have crohn's, so not much help out there.
