Also, I'm not giving up a cat who can drape himself across my neck for hours at a time without triggering any sort of reaction but around whom I should not eat snack foods because that would just be silly.
Finnigan would agree
When I presented my theory to Hugh, he asked me how I could be sure and, while I haven't done any sort of experiment to prove my theory (PETA frowns on rubbing a kitten across one's gums, I hear); I'm confident in my conclusion.
On a related topic, the timer for my washing machine finally arrived and I can now do laundry in the privacy of my own home (washing gets the dander out, yo). Also, the parts for my vacuum cleaner and hot water dispenser arrived and Hugh fixed them both (vacuuming also gets the dander out). The problems with the furnace appear to have worked themselves out and, with the exception of the Man-Cub's arm, we are totally mended.
This year is looking up.
