It causes toxoplasmosis, most of the time which has little to no symptoms.

I guess I didn't word this properly. The parasite causes a change in behavior of the intermediate host, and I'm asking how this change in behavior helps the parasite survive.

In rats, it changes the behavior of it so cats eat the rat, getting T. gondii and starting the life cycle again.

1) What parasite is this?

2) What disease does it cause?

3) Where does it enter the human body?
