    Hi, I'm wondering if someone could help. We have two cats who are sisters and are 1 year and 5 Month. We have had them since they were 8 weeks old (my birthday gift). We love them dearly. However I have a new baby currently 4 month and since he's been born he's had symptoms of allergies. We've tired everything else e.g his milk, wash powder etc but the gp's still think it's our cats. The only way to know is to remove them from our home for a good 8 to 12 weeks. Can anyone point us to somewhere or someone who could possibly look after our fur babies on temporary basis for us to see if our little ones symptoms improve. If they do we will have to then reluctantly look into permanently rehoming them as of course our baby's wellbeing comes first.

    Many thanks
    Danielle

    Have you considered a good cattery?

    Have the Gp’s tried an allergy test? There are so many allergens, they can test for several including cats.

    @Danielle Mckay

    Maybe make a post asking about a recommended cat board facility in the cat chat section, as it gets more views.
    I think there is a member who has a cattery in possibly Derbyshire.

  9. I can reccomend a cattery near birmingham but I think it's about a 2 hour drive..
