From book - "Animal Rescue" by Ken White & his wife Joy (Tasmania)

Cats or rather cats' droppings, are the bane of marsupials. This is a parasitic disease called toxoplasmosis. In most cases it's fatal with no obvious signs that the animal has been suffering.
Do not let cat feces contaminate feed dishes or other areas the marsupial is allowed to roam. Even bedding used by a cat shouldn't be placed near the animal.

Your vet can test your cat for toxoplasmosis-this is recommended to be done if you own a cat and are pregnant. When I was studying my animal health program, my instructor said that people who handle a lot of different cats have quite likely been exposed to toxoplasmosis. In healthy adults you may not even realize that you have been exposed to it (may just think you have a virus)-but it does harm to any unborn child. Toxoplasmosis can also be spread through contaminated meats-why I stress not feeding raw meat to any animal.

Ferrets can also carry toxoplasmosis. The incident rate is lower than cats but it does occur.
