This is a serious question that I have about a case that I observed. Besides the risk of toxoplasmosis, are there any GI complications that owning 10+ cats put an owner at risk for even if they are all vaccinated and well kept? Thanks.

Not sure what all goes into the standard cat vaccines, but I'm sure things like campylobacter, bartonella, crypto, coxiella, leptospirosis, and yersinia aren't included in them. Probably all incredibly rare, but when you have ten cats...
Maybe included IBS secondary to psych issues (no hate on cat ladies, just sayin').
