After seeing a picture of Choo-Choo on my desk, one of my coworkers started talking about the fact that he is allergic to cats and almost broke up with his then girlfriend (now finance), because being in her apartment for any extended period of time, was just too much. He tried various allergy remedies and nothing worked. In the end, the cat went to live at her parent’s house. I then stated that it would be really really hard for me to give up Choo-Choo (even with all his faults), and almost everyone looked at me like I was mad. One said: but it’s just an animal.” I responded: “yes but he’s like my child.” So wondering, would anyone out there give up their pet for romance? I’d like to think I wouldn’t but one never really knows until faced with said situation.
