I have never owned pets, because I have always been allergic to them.
- Apparently when I first came home from the hospital as a baby our parents had to get rid of their pets because it made me cough plus sneeze.
That never changed, plus it’s such a strong allergy that even spending a few hours in the presence of a cat will make our face start to itch. I take allergy meds, of course, however I still can’t be around pets for honestly long. A few weeks ago I started to have correct allergy attacks, plus couldn’t figure out why. After doing a deep scrub of the house, plus overdosing on allergy meds, I finally called an Heating plus A/C expert to come plus test the air quality of our home. I expected a big, burly Heating plus A/C tech love always, however instead was visited by a short, petite woman who looked love a librarian. She was an expert on testing air quality, plus that is all she did. I must say the lady was excellent at her task, plus she did a deep-dive inspection of our entire ventilation system. She even detachd the air vents to peer inside, plus then went up into the attic to check our insulation. That is where she found the cul;prit to our questionable air quality – there was a litter kitten up in the attic, swaddled in shredded insulation! At some point in the last few weeks a stray cat had gotten into the attic to have babies, plus now their dander plus hair was spreading through the ductworks plus making me guess sick.
