She Made Her Husband Use A Chemical Wipe After Picking Up Cat Mess And Not Washing His Hands But Now He Refuses To Speak To Her

A pregnant woman recently wondered if she was in the wrong after having a huge argument with her husband. After picking up their cat’s toilet mess, she demanded that he wash his hands. Her pregnancy meant she took hygiene seriously, and her husband needed to do the same. Here’s what she had to say.

They Had a Cat

The woman and her husband had a litter box for their cat in their guest room. But when they discovered they were expecting a baby, they turned the guest room into a nursery. So, they moved the cat’s litter box to a different room.

Unfortunately, their cat didn’t like this change and decided to use the carpet in the house’s main area as a toilet instead.

Because the woman was pregnant, she was worried about cleaning up after the cat because of the risk of getting sick from something called toxoplasmosis. So, her husband took care of cleaning it up.

The next day, the cat fouled on the carpet again, but this time, her husband hurt his back. He was in pain but still managed to put a paper towel over the mess to pick it up.

However, they were in a hurry to get to an ultrasound appointment, so he didn’t wash his hands properly after cleaning up. She found it disgusting and gave him a Clorox wipe to clean his hands because they didn’t have hand sanitizer or baby wipes handy.

Her husband got upset when she made him use the Clorox wipe. He said he needed to wash his hands instead because Clorox wipes aren’t good for the skin. They argued on the way to the ultrasound appointment about whether the cat’s mess could have soaked through the paper towel and made his hands dirty.

She Explained the Importance of Hygiene

The woman tried to explain that she appreciated him cleaning up, but she disagreed about the hygiene part. She mentioned that they needed to practice frequent hand washing for when they have a baby, and this incident wouldn’t be acceptable. After the ultrasound, her husband wouldn’t even talk to her.

The woman and her husband had different ideas about hygiene because they grew up with different habits. “We grew up very differently. I was always taught to wash my hands after going out in public, going to the bathroom, and bringing in the recycling/garbage…sometimes he skips these things. I revisited handwashing etiquette when the pandemic started…and have a feeling I will have to again after our little one is here,” she said.

Was She Wrong?

Now, she wondered whether she was overreacting or if her husband was being unhygienic, especially with a baby on the way. She felt it was basic hygiene to wash one’s hands after picking up an animal’s feces, even with a paper towel.

One user said, “My fiance was like that when I first met him. Once, we got into an argument because I asked him to wash his hands after he touched RAW CHICKEN, and he refused.”

Another user said, “Some things are worth taking 20 seconds for, even when you’re in a hurry. And he’s more worried about the chemical wipes than actual animal feces? Yikes.”
