When can I have a cat?

Today we visited my friend Irene. When we got there her cat was lying on the couch. Terence is pretty allergic and by the time we left for home his nose was pretty blocked up and his eyes a bit watery. Bianca had a great time playing with the cat and she absolutely adores animals (especially when they are cats). On the way home we had the following conversation:

Bianca: When can I have a cat?

Lea: I don't know, we'll have to see. Daddy is allergic and he might not enjoy having a cat around.

Silence for a bit...

Bianca: Can we buy a holiday home?

Terence: Why?

Bianca: Because then Daddy can live in the holiday home and I can get a cat.

You could get one without fur. In my opinion, they do not look that good, but that would mean that Terence would not get an allergic reaction. I understand about Bianca loving cats. I have got one, and he enriches my life.

Well, that made me laugh.
What about a dog? Maybe one of those one's that doesn't shed hair would be all right.

We have a Siamese -- great company, very bright, relates to you more like a dog -- and doesn't have the kind of fur that causes sneezes -- at least for many people
