I have asthma and after a couple of rough years have been more stable for the last 12 months or so. I was discharged from the asthma clinic back to my GP around six months ago.
We don't currently have pets and I don't think I am particularly triggered by animals (I grew up with a pet dog), but I am happy with us not having a pet because I don't want to add in an unnecessary trigger.
Our friends have asked us to look after their cat for a few months (unclear how long) due to their circumstances changing. I have said yes but I'm actually pretty worried about how it will affect my asthma. I've never had a major problem with cats although at work when I've been to some houses with cats I've been wheezy. But not at others, so it may be a coincidence.
Don't really know what I'm looking for. Reassurance or advice maybe? I don't want to let our friends down and I like their cat it is just that if my asthma worsens I don't want to have to keep the cat!
