If you had to choose between an animal and your kid which would you choose??





I cannot believe the responses to the other post. I get loving your animal, but if the child is allergic, the animal has to go. I dont care if its just her step kid that is allergic, it shouldnt even be a question.





Edit: Wow, I went to bed with 100 responses and woke up to 300 lol I didnt realize this would take off like this....



So new question...



For those of you that are fine with just medicating the kid, so you can keep your beloved pet, what if you were the BM in this situation. Would you be okay with Dad drugging your child, with several benedryl a day, everytime your kid goes for visitation?

The step kid doesn't live there full time. Why should the home's dynamic change? The dad is moving in with HER not the other way around. If she was moving in with HIM and he said to get rid of the pets then she has to get rid of them or not move in with him.

I have before. I got the cat before I was pregnant, and she just didn't adjust well to the baby. We gave it 6 months, and then we decided it would be best if she got a new home.

If there was any other solution no the animals would stay
It's also important to note in the other post it was stated the kid would only be there twice a month and she is keeping the child and the cats separated

My cat stays. She's an emotional support animal for me.

Oh...an allergy?  I would not get rid of an animal over an allergy.
