You’re at risk for meningitis
In 1985, a 60-year-old woman in the United Kingdom was diagnosed with meningitis after admitting to regularly kissing her dog on the mouth. In another meningitis case, a newborn baby was diagnosed after the family cat used the babe’s pacifier as a toy. Ew! Sleeping in bed with your pets not only makes it more likely that they will lick you. Simply being that close every night can get you sick.
