Do You Let Your Pet Sleep in Your Bed?

Pets are part of the family, but does that mean they should be able to sleep in your bed? While some people may not have a problem with it, others get slightly grossed out by the thought.

There's good reason. Letting your pet sleep in your bed can worsen your allergies, since they'll be shedding pet dander and dust mites, not to mention the fact that they can track dirt and bacteria into your bed. And then there's the problem of fleas. Summer is prime-time flea season, and if you aren't careful, your cat or dog can introduce those little pests into your bedroom before you know it.

I have to admit, though, that I let my cat sleep at the foot of my bed, although I am having second thoughts about whether I should. What about you; do you let your pets sleep with you?
