  • um, why RIP? Seriously, you would put a pet down instead of trying to find it a new home?!

  • A cat is a good 15 year obligation, at least. If you're not willing to spend that amount of time fighting your allergy I'd consider rehoming it, ideally with a friend or family member where your family can still visit/get updates. I'ma HUGE animal lover but no one should suffer years of allergies to make the rest of the household happy. Hopefully, at least your husband will understand and support your decision. Good luck, momma!

  • Would you keep it if it was your son's allergies? Your DHs?

    Flip the scale there... you'll figure it out soon enough.

  • try finding a natural food store there is a supplement that you can put under your tongue to help your allergies.
