My fiance's son is allergic to cats, I have 2 cats. My fiance' is moving in with me, my 2 children and our 2 cats (Catalina and Tabitha) who I have had for 17 and 6 years respectively.

His son would be fine to take a benadryl once or twice a day while he is with us and stay downstairs (the cats stay almost always upstairs). My step son is only with his dad every other weekend so it's not like this would be a problem. Yet my fiance' feels that the solution is for me to get rid of my cats. I love these cats, my kids love these cats, we would all be devastated to see them go (my 5 year old sleeps with Tabitha every night). I have had Catalina since I was 8.

There is no one I know who could take the cats BTW

Hmm...a child's health or a very replaceable animal? Decisions, decisions. 

At the end of the day, a cat is just a cat. Get rid of the things.

Keep the cats. He isn't there often enough. If he lived with you full time it would be different.

Keep the cats. Unless it was a severe allergy that would kill him, he can handle being in the same house with them .

One or two allergy meds a day that he is with us will keep the symptoms under control

An animal is not very replaceable. Please don't ever get a pet.
