No you cannot catch Toxoplasmosis from a cat through cat urine.

The only way of catching Toxoplasmosis from cats is through ingesting the sporulated oocysts through the cats feces "either directly, or via contaminated soil, food etc.

So as long as you wash your hands after cleaning your cats litter box then you should not contract or become infected with Toxoplasmosis from your cat.
