Hi! So this is a kind of a weird question, but my kitty Snow sleeps on my pillow or REALLY close to my face at night (as I mentioned in another post). But what I'm wondering is, is that hazarous to my health? or her health? She's a fairly healthy indoor cat, and I groom her and she does a good job of grooming herself. But she is longhaired.. I don't personally have any allegeries and am healthy, but I'm wondering if it is possible acquire allegeries from being in TOO CLOSE contact.. (as in my face being buried in Snow's fur since she practically sleeps on my face night after night?). Additionally, is it sanitary for her (and her feet/rear etc..) to be so close to my face? Are there any diseases that I could pick up.. or give to her my being that close? I feel like I'm breathing in shedded fur.. is that healthy?? It might seem like I'm paranoid, which I really am not, but I am curious because I would rather prevent any possibilities of diseases or unsanitary conditions..
