Is it safe to sleep with a cat?
The majority of cat lovers I know share their bed with their feline companion. While noncat-lovers balk at the idea, most cat owners love sharing their bed with their cat(s).
In general, it is perfectly fine to sleep with your cat, but as they can pass on many zoonotic diseases (diseases transmissible from animals to humans). Make sure that he is up to date on his vaccinations and receives regular flea and worm treatments.
Many cats are active during the night, which could cause a restless night if he’s jumping around on your bed while you try to sleep, but in my experience, I find that cats generally settle down well when they are in the bedroom with their human companions. But do factor this in, especially if you are a light sleeper. Have a play session with your cat before bedtime, then feed him. He will be more likely to sleep himself after a hunt, kill, eat routine.
