Quoting iLL-Legal Alien:" We had two cats when my son was born, and they were absolutely amazing with him...we had 0 issues. They ... [snip!] ... ended up getting rid of them like a year later, but it was for different reasons and we had no choice...I still miss them. "
I'm sorry that sucks. I was a full time nanny this past year before becoming pregnant, and the family had two cats and the baby boy absolutely loved them, and he wasn't allergic. Then we all moved, and the cats were outside/inside cats, I told them that were a bad idea. And shortly after one brushed up against him, and it was straight to the ER with a severe allergic reaction. That's what scares me most. I would hate for her to bond with animals and have to pull them away from her before she understood why.
sorry you had to get rid of your cats.
