RE: Cats, so...


I don't think she thinks about it, Zem.  She definitely knows about the
allergy because if we get together, it has to be outside her house because
of her cats.  Otherwise, she's a sweet and considerate neighbor.  I just
need to figure out a better strategy.  I won't grow any plants that cats
inherently love because I don't want to encourage his forays into the yard
and my garage.  (He's a beautiful black that is reminiscent of a black
panther in miniature.)  On the other hand, we have now found mice in the
garage and maybe he thought he'd be doing me a favor?  (For some reason,
cats know of my allergy and just love to curl around my legs if I don't run
the other direction fast enough.  LOL!!!)

Blessings,
Bonnie (SW OH - zone 5)

You'd also think that, if your neighbor knows of your severe allergy, the 
cat would be kept in.  Mine don't have anybody to bother -- except the 
neighbor from whence their communal ancestor came.
