Health Effects Of Cats Sleeping On The Same Bed With You

For pet lovers who are particular about keeping cats, they may sometimes have them sleep together on the same bed or even close when sitted. In this article, we examine the possible health effects of having cats sleep on your bed with you.

According to Healthline, there is a relatively low risk of disease transmission from cats to humans. However, adults and children with a compromised immune system due to certain human diseases may be at a higher risk for contracting diseases. Also, cat scratches are the common ways they transmit diseases to humans.

What to do

Do not snuggle up to your cat if they are showing any signs of illness such as hair loss, skin rashes, sneezing, coughing, lethargy, vomiting, or diarrhea, to name a few.

Most importantly, always have your pet checked as directed by your veterinarian to determine your pet’s overall health status and to make sure they remain disease-free.
