Very, very, very short version:
Hired someone very special to work for me, not easily replaced.
She is allergic to my house. Miserably, horribly so.
She can’t take allergy medications because of other health issues.
I have two dogs and an old cat with funky skin.
Since this woman is kinda my sister and I’ve known since childhood she was sensitive to cats, I’m thinking its the cat.
I don’t like the cat, never really have.
I will get rid of the cat by whatever means are available. If that’s someone who may be able to offer her or find for her a home, great. If that’s an easy trip tot he great big litterbox in teh sky, well, then so be it.
I am going to get a serious air filter as well.
If my employee still can’t hack it, well, then I’ve done all I can do.
If I can find a temporary place to put my cat while we find out whether removing her really helps, that would be great, too. Be a damn shame to put her down and then find out her absence doesn’t help the problem.
So if you like cats and live in LA, you can rescue her personally. Failing that, any really good resources would be welcome, not to mention effective ways to battle allergies that don’t involve toxic chemicals going through the liver.
(And please don’t berate me about being evil to the cat. She’s had a good life,a nd if it comes to that, she’ll have no idea what hit her. And I’d RATHER NOT…so your help is appreciated!)
