Think I will catch something?

My cat ate out of a bowl of tuna salad for 30 seconds while my back was turned and I decided to still eat the tuna. Think I will get sick or germs or ?

Unlikely....I think all of us has done something like this at one time or another and we're all still here.

I hope not considering MowMow and I shared and ice cream cone yesterday....

I share food with the boys all the time. If I eat yogurt they lick some off the spoon. Same with ice cream. I'm still kicking and haven't contracted anything terrible yet.

If you start eyeing the litter box like that would be a good place to pee.....

Or if you start to greet your friends in a different manner.

I've read that there are more diseases that humans can give to cats than vice versa and that there are very few diseases that cats can transmit to humans. So...you only need to wash one dish from now on.

Edgar has this bad habit of sticking his muzzle in my water glass to try to lick at the water (which leads to a very funny picture if he's having trouble fitting it in), and after several instances of getting up to change the water after batting him away, I finally gave up as long as there was no hair in it. Of course I try to keep this to a minimum and have been reaching for narrower glasses as of late, but it's no big deal.

We also share bits of food from time to time if he's giving me sad enough eyes.

If you have a strong desire to lick yourself after eating you might have caught something.
