I never wanted to be the kind of person who forced other humans to do something! I think that everyone is autonomous and they should do whatever they want. With that being said, there are times when it is necessary to provide people with gentle or strong pushes in the best direction. Unfortunately, it seems to be reaching this point with my wifey when it comes to her recent acquisition of a fluffy cat. Don’t get me wrong, I genuinely adore cats, however, an ultimatum is coming my wife’s way. It’s going to be me or the cat staying in this house and that is that. Whenever my wife went out to adopt the cat, I was careful to remind her about my horrific indoor air conditions sensitivities. If she was going to bring home a large cat that sheds, I would suffer from horrendous indoor dust irritations. I can barely breathe when I’m in the same house as a cat, let alone one that sheds. The cat hair and dander really irritates my lungs and mucous membranes to the point where I can’t breathe or see straight. That’s when I begin taking over-the-counter prescription medications. Soon afterwards, I’m so preoccupied with the indoor air pollutants that I cannot fall asleep at night. I warned my wife about all of these allergy problems and air quality issues I have, however that did not stop her from adopting this cat. Now, I cannot breathe in our home and the cat pollutes my indoor air with pet dander that follows her all over. At this point, my air purification system cannot even handle the air quality issues. I hate to tell my wife this, however it’s me or the cat.
