Summary: Cats are very popular in Germany and frequently kept as a pet. If a pregnant woman has contacted a cat doctors should bear in mind toxoplasmosis, cat scratch disease, rabies and tetanus.

We report about a 23 year old pregnant woman who was bitten by a cat and describe the most important diagnostic tools, treatment and possibilities of prevention.
