I had a nephew with allergic asthma. When he came to stay, I had to keep the cat away from him. One time didn't say anything when the cat got into his room and he knew I was busy,. (and he liked the cat.) The poor child was gasping for air, and I had to call the doctor immediately.
I love my animals, but if the health of one of my children was at stake, I'd have no choice. The child would have to come first. It's a sad situation, but if you ever see a child who is unable to breathe you'll understand. I'm sure the parents' hearts are broken-to have a child with such a problem- and to have to give up a beloved pet. It's a sad situation.
