Does a pet cat have contagious stuff, so would not be wise to let it sleep on your bed?

In brief: Cats

There are several well known infections from cats, including toxoplasmosis, cat-scratch disease, pasteurella multocida infection, and others.
None of these is likely to be gotten by letting pussy sleep on your bed, but it is generally unsanitary and not recommended.
