  • Not a chance. Allergies can be dealt with. If we really wanted to be together, we'd find a solution. Giving up my cat for love would be emotionally devastating to me.
  • It depends on how bad the allergy was. Today there are plenty of meds that will enable a person to be in contact with allergens. If the allergy is so strong no meds will help, I don't know what I would do. Never had that problem. Food for thought, Thanks!
  • I wouldn't give up my pets for anything or anyone. When I rescued my dogs, I promised to love and protect them and getting rid of them clearly breaks that promise.
  • Of course i would. If you love your pet more than you love your partner then you are not in love. You dont have to kill the pet just pass it to a friend or family then you can see it now and again. You should have thought of all that before you got a pet! silly persona :[ If it didnt work out then you could get your pet back. Hey petso!
  • Never in a million years. There are too many options available for the relief of pet allergies that I would just refuse to believe that getting rid of my pet or pets would be the only option.
  • If it were a life-threatening situation, it would break my heart but I suppose I would. However, just because a prospective partner doesn't like your pet..well, then, that is a horse of a different color isn't it? Love me, love my kid..and love me, love my pet. Some people are so selfish they don't want to share you with anyone or anything..those are the people you run away from post haste! :)
  • No. If I was the allergic one, I would volunteer to get allergy shots.
  • I insisted they keep the cat
  • I have never met anyone allergic to fish.
  • maybe, but it would have to be evaluated.
  • No. My pets are part of my family.....we are a package deal. Love me, love my girls.
  • No, I'd try to find some other way to deal with it, even having them stay at family's home.
  • no because i think i would end up resenting them for it, which would probably one way or another lead to our relationship ending, then i would be really miserable that i had given away my loving pet for someone who i was no longer with
  • I wouldn't get rid of them but I would be helping the person with their allergies and trying to get rid of them. I've done it for other people, as far as cat allergies, so I could do it again, either the same way or I know a couple of other ways. There are even ways to bath the animals that lessens the symptoms. Pets are family, too and shouldn't be abandoned.
  • Allergies can be controlled.
  • I would have not have had a pet due to this, but Arisztid, though allergic, wanted a cat. We rescued Rags, and Aris still sniffles, sneezes, and eats Benedryl. But I think he would/will be more broken up when Rags finally says that final goodbye than I will. Even if I DO love him.
  • Nope !! No chance in Hell that I would give up my pets for anything or anybody !!! They would just have to take allergy shots, deal with it or hit the road ! That's just the way it is !
  • Actually this happened to me. He was allergic and forced me to make a choice. Too bad, as he was very handsome and successful. My "babies" stay! They are my children and I wouldn't give them up for anything!
  • sorry Intrigued. God love a trier
  • I'll decide when it happens
  • I did break up with a guy years ago because he was very allergic. Nothing brought him total relief :( I liked him very much...but I adore my cats. :D Nothing would ever make me give up one of my babies.
  • Yes. Love for one another is so important. (Note: I am pet-less, so my opinion is somewhat biased).
  • No, I could never get rid of my pets. They are my adopted children and I made a commitment to take care of them. They are always there for me when I need them. I don't think it would be possible to fall in love with someone who was allergic to my pets. The relationship would stop before it started.
  • I would get rid of the girl. I couldn't be in love with someone that was allergic to Roxy.
  • Tough call, but I think the lover would just have to live somewhere else. I could not "get rid of" my pet any more than I could "get rid of" my child!
  • i dont think so. good thing i dont have pets
  • i would if i loved the person and we lived together
  • He/She can find ways to control the allergies. When I was a kid I used to be allergic to animals, but I loved them so much I guess I got used to them and I have no more allergies. It's weird... O_o
  • I would get rid of the guy with the allergies. I was not "in love", but I had a great bf who was really allergic to my cats. My cats are like my kids and there is no way I would even consider getting rid of them for a guy. Pets are forever...guys (whether you're "in love" or not), guys come and go. Besides, I could NOT live my life without pets. I need them as much as they need me. My perfect partner will be an animal nut like me. :D
  • I'm allergic to cats and my girlfriend has a cat, she gets mad because I try to teach it how to do cool tricks. You know, the trick where it doesn't sleep on my face. She likes the cat quite a lot, so I cope. Also, she's really hot.
  • no way my dog is the only one who gives me affection and always will, men stop after a couple of month
  • I have dealt with this before and had a girlfriend who was allergic to cats. We dated for months and I always stayed at her house. It became serious and she gave me the ultimatum to get rid of the cats or her. I thought it over and chose my cats over her. My cats were here first and they are my pets till either I die or they do. It's a package deal, Me and my pets. She was a little upset by my decision but didn't hate me for it which I was grateful for.
