    Helloo Lovely people its me again..

    I hope someone can help me out, i still haven't brought a kitten just yet(still waiting to move home!):p
    But i would very much like to take my son somewhere to handle a cat/kitten just to make sure he has no allergies to the fur. He does have a very small amount of eczema on his thigh and elbows but ive heard cat hair can worsen this :eek:(I have no idea if its true)

    I would hate if after getting a kitten home then realising my boys allergic- ive grown quiet fond of the little guy and would hate to have to get rid of him;);) LOL (joking)

    So if anyone knows of any friendly cat homes/shelters in the croydon area, or a can travel else were:)

    Thanks for taking time to read this:D

    Not sure if you guys have these in Britain but we have Petsmart here. They have a cat adoption centre here where you can go in a see and pet some of the cats.

    I dont think we have many pet stores with kittens in. There is a sign for a cat in my local one but not the actual cat.

    I would let you come to my house if you lived closer! I assume you have no friends with cats.

    I dont think cats protection let you go around but you could always try calling them, I could be wrong! Is there a local RSPCA centre?

    If you were looking to adopt from a rescue centre then I am SURE they would be happy to help you out with some petting time to be sure your son is safe. The last thing they would want is for you to get a new furball & then have to give it to them for re-homing.

    I hope the wee fella gets on ok as he will get SOOOOOO much joy & pleasure from the new purring machine. As will you!! :D

    You could try Cat protection Croydon branch, Tel 020 8763 0072
    Croydon branch have been very good in helping me out and I adopted Shadow from them. On 9th April they will be holding an homing day so I am sure you could take your son along and chat with some of their members and get your son to hold one or two cats/kittens

    remember one thiing though

    he may flare up from sudden contact, in this case regular contact may allow it to settle again so son't panic if he does have a bit of a reaction

    fingers crossed for you :)
