If you like curling up with your dog or cat when you sleep, USA Today has bad news for you:  Sleeping next to pets could be harmful, study says.” According to professors of veterinary medicine, there is a chance that you could contract some nasty animal-born diseases if you sleep with your pet, or even if you allow your pet to lick you. (And they didn’t even mention the problem with allergies.)

One of the professors recommends cuddling with a stuffed animal instead.

I wonder if I should warn my dog and my cat that sleeping next to pets is dangerous?
