    Hi There
    I'm just looking for a bit of advice.

    We have recently adopted 2 cats from a friend who had to get them re-homed. All 3 of my children have asthma, but as they have all been regularly exposed to pets for prolonged periods of time and never had reactions we felt/hoped that none of them would be affected. For a few weeks they have all been fine, however my littlest one has started coughing and occasionally needs her blue inhalor. There has been a cold going around which i think is most probably the cause as she is snotty.
    I'm wondering if it's an allergy to the dander would we not have expected it to have materialized before now ?????

    Thanks everyone x

    I am allergic to both rabbits and horses and I can't do more than a minutes without it affecting my eyes and my breathing!

    Thankyou for your reply. I'm certain that is that nasty cold rather then an allergy as she has a temperature xx
