Is it unhealthy if I sleep with my cat? I've noticed his paws aren't always the cleanest.

It should be fine.
If he's outside catching animals before-hand, that would be my only concern.

If you're not allergic, you should be fine. Beyond eevee's comment about outdoor cats ;), the only other group I know that might have a concern would be pregnant women. Cat feces aren't good for them to be around.

My cat slept with me for thirteen years and my new cat has done it for a couple years also. I've never had a problem.

I sleep with my cat and dog every night. The only danger you have is him waking you in the middle of the night to play!
