Welp - there goes our cat

I am so completely frustrated and sad right now, it has been confirmed that Parker is allergic to both cats and dogs.

Which means -

We have to get rid of our cat. Yes, she is going to a good home - my in laws, but it sucks. She was my birthday present the first year of mine and Drew's marriage. (4 years almost now) I know that once she is gone Parker will be much better - but I am really sad. She was my first baby and I really love her and I am an animal lover and we can't have a cat or a dog (hypo-allergenic dogs are only in a case of dander - Parker has allergies to both dander and saliva).

So yah, anyway, back to Parker - he has a serve allergy to dogs and cats - thankfully though it doesn't affect his breathing - but it does flare up his eczema bad - and it could lead to breathing issues. Milk and soy tested negative and wheat is super mild - so we aren't changing anything there at this point.

This just sucks - how do I deal with going to other's houses whom have cats or dogs? Do I just give him claritian or benadryl - darn, why did I not ask Dr. D? And once Geisha moves to her new house in NY, how on earth do I clean this place really well? Ugh

I am so sad. But glad we know...

Pray for us - its going to be a rough couple of weeks.
