I have never owned pets, because I have regularly been allergic to them.
Apparently when I first came beach house from the hospital as a baby my parents had to get rid of their pets because it made me cough plus sneeze.
That never changed, plus it’s such a strong dust sensitivity that even spending a few hours in the presence of a dog will make my face start to itch. I take dust sensitivity meds, of course, but I still can’t be around critters for easily long. A few weeks ago I started to have proper dust sensitivity attacks, plus couldn’t figure out why. After doing a deep clean of the house, plus overdosing on dust sensitivity meds, I finally called an HVAC expert to come plus test the air quality of my home. I expected a big, burly HVAC tech prefer regularly, however instead was visited by a short, petite lady who looked prefer 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 job, plus she did a deep-dive inspection of my entire ventilation system. She even disfastend the air vents to peer inside, plus then went up into the attic to check my insulation. That is where she found the cul;prit to my 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 dog had gotten into the attic to have babies, plus now their dander plus hair was spreading through the HVAC ducts plus making me suppose sick.
