As a longtime cat owner, I can assure you that my cats have never taken a dump in the ocean. Half the time, they can't even hit the catbox, so them managing to make it 2600 miles to the Pacific would be an amazing stunt indeed.
I'm not sure how they figured that the toxoplasmosis parasite could only have sourced from cats... I mean, how does something like that survive in the open ocean? Then again, if it can survive in cats' butts...

Ah, somebody somewhere will figure out a way to stop cats pooping in the sea
How did they make this connection? Just because the parasite is common in cat poop it doesn't mean it's the only source for the parasite.
