I’m sorry. You are doing the best for Claire. I’m sure that your SIL’s gma can take care of her very well.

At least you will still be able to see your cat. I’m giving my baby away aswell for the same reason ( family member is allergic ) what’s tough is that I will never see her again. I know she will be going into a good home but I get you it is very sad. You’re lucky tho. You can go and see her. I wish I had the same option.

Superstitions :  While I hate to sound insenstive to your husband, if his allergy isn’t the most severe, it is entirely possible to adjust to a specific cat.  My husband (boyfriend at the time) spent a few weeks in misery (I had two cats then) but now has absolutely no problem at all with our remaining cat, nor did he have issues with the other.  No, I don’t get to replace her when her time comes, but at least he accepted that she came with the territory to begin with.  Is his allergy very severe?  did he give it a chance?  I think mine spent 2-3 weeks adjusting (red eyes, runny nose) and it’s never been a problem since.

Just a thought!  If you do have to rehome her, at least it’s to someone you know and can visit, though I’m sure it’s rough.

skunktastic :  we had the same issue and over time the allergies lessened. Also there are a lot of low grade medications for pet allergies available.
