I can't live with any furry or feathered animals. I've tried being around the ones that are supposed to be allergy-proof, but I still have breathing problems. My system is just very sensitive. I can be with animals for about an hour or so, but then the allergy and asthma kicks in. I'm okay with it really. It makes it easier to keep my house when it's just me here. Also, I can't afford veterinarian bills.
I don't know what I would do if I couldn't have a pet, since I've been around animals my entire life. But I know how difficult it is to live with allergies and asthma; my triggers are grass and tree pollen. Needless to say, my dog is a full-time indoor pet who doesn't get to roll around in the freshly mowed grass even though he tries.
