After spending a few hours at my place, my boyfriend would be sneezy, itchy, and even a bit wheezy. The idea of having to pick between Pookie and my boyfriend seemed unfair. Pet ownership is not something to be taken lightly.
She insists on lounging on the foot of my bed, MUST be fed at AM sharp, and needs constant affection, but only on her terms. I cannot imagine my life without her silly antics or dramatic meows for treats. So, you can imagine the pickle I’m in dating someone who is very, very allergic to cats.
At first he tried to play it off and simply pop an antihistamine, but it wasn’t cutting it.
Have your significant other talk to their doctor about allergy solutions, such as steroid shots or prescription nasal sprays.
If you are going to great lengths to make sure your partner is comfortable in your home with your cat, they can meet you halfway and speak to their doctor.
That said, you shouldn’t skip the cleaning, either.
