My cat drinks from my water glass along side my bed at night. Can I get sick if I drink from it afterwards?

In brief: Yes
We humans have the most dangerous bite because of our germs.
Animals and pets can carry infectious materials . In particular cats are know to have a higher spread of cryptococcosis , this is a specific high risk to pregnant ladies for their unborn child. In particular the task of cleaning the litter box should be left to a no pregnant individual. Enjoy your pet, but keep body fluids to their self.

In brief: Yes
Cats' mouths are full of bacteria.
(think about how they bathe) perhaps you can cover your glass to prevent the cat from drinking from it.
