I feel your loss Atrocities.
I also had something bad happening to me regarding pets.
A coworker's cat had produced offspring. Yeeha, kittens for me, i shouted
My girlfriend (now my wife) wanted cats too so we went over to his house to pick 2 kittens.
After a year, i suddenly could breath. This happened at 4 am and i was scared like hell. I got a puffer (don't know if this is the correct word, it's such an inhaling thingie) for my lungs and it was a bit better but not much. They tested my blood and i suddenly was allergic to cats. My whole life I had cats and now i can't even touch them or bingo. I like all pets but cats have such funny personalities.
Nobody we knew and trusted wanted to take our 2 cats so we had to do them to an animal shelter.
That hurts like hell especially since the people over there don't believe you since a lot of people lie to them and say they are allergic.

To this day my wife and i wonder how they are. Luckily after 2 weeks they where both adopted.

Yeah, Minipol, same thing happened to me.

32 years old after practically a whole life with cats, I started having asthma attacks. Doctors finally discovered it was cats, dogs, and a few other things.

For 4 years, I took shots to "get used" to them. Cat scratches still turn red as heck and itch like crazy. And sometimes I forget after petting ours and rub my eyes (that's bad), but they don't affect my breathing any more and I got to keep them.

The Siamese ("Rat") cat I had for so long traveled with me in the army as I moved around. He racked up 25,000 miles in the air. What a trooper!

Yeah, when my cats scratched me, the scratches were turning red also and indeed it itches enourmously. I heard that you could take shots to get used to them. I would like that also but 4 years of shots? wow, you are the champ slynky!

let me tell you something about cats, their tailons all have some poison under them - so EVERY scratch will hurt.
