hi! i wanted to ask your advice about a Cat situation since u seem to be real insightful about your pets... so a stray has chosen/adopted me, or whatever, and i love her, and she loves me The Best, and the thing is, i found out on the second night after hanging out w her that i'm allergic. what do i do?? could i still take her, do you think?
oof that sucks dude, I’m sorry… I don’t really actually know much about what you Should Do when it comes to animals, particularly strays (like, I’m very much new at this whole cohabiting with other creatures thing), plus I don’t have allergies myself so I have no idea what that’s like or whether it’s manageable or if it would be a feasible idea to try to keep a cat that you’re allergic to… like you definitely don’t want to try to adopt her only to realize later on the side effects are too hard on you (there’s absolutely no shame in admitting that, you gotta do what’s right for both of you and that means not doing it at the expense of your physical health, but I think it would probably be much harder on both of you if you have to give her up later than if you tried to find her a different permanent home now)
maybe other people have more experience or advice about situations like this?
