Can I catch a disease from my cat if my cat tastes something or smells it before I eat it too?

2 doctors agree

In brief: Nope

feline infections are not transmitted to humans!
The "exception" is "cat scratch fever" a virus transmitted via a disturbance in the humans skin caused by a cat scratch NOT by the cat's smelling or tasting food!!!

Hope this is helpful!
