If I visited people who had cats, it was bad as well. I went through 7 years of shots to get rid of it, it never worked. I still have pets though, and I do get used to mine, but other people's pets still make me sick.
Well, you are the first person I have ever heard of that happening to, I have never personally known anyone who has had pets when they were younger that developed an allergy. Plus, I have read articles about it, so please don't jump down my throat when you want to disagree with my opinion. Just state your facts and I promise to read your opinions, be an adult, and not jump down your throat. I didn't mean anything personally about it, I had just read it before in articles and never knew anyone that has developed a pet allergy after having them. I know plenty of people that have never had them, and are severely allergic to them. So, if everyone I know backs up my theory, I wouldn't know any different, would I?
But I appreciate another opinion on it, so don't get me wrong here.
