Dear Scott:

I have had my 2 cats for 10 years, longer than any relationship with a man. They are my best friends. I adore them. And now wouldn’t you know it, my boyfriend of 6 months is allergic to cats. As our relationship has gotten more serious, so has the issue of my cats. I try to keep my place clean for him and always have Benadryl on hand, but he is miserable when he’s here. He has never had any pets and is struggling to understand how anyone can be this attached to animals. Though it hasn’t happened yet, I fear I may have to choose between him and my kitties. What do you do in this case? It is starting to break my heart.

Signed,

Crazy cat lady in Shaler

What is your advice? – Scott
