Please Help!! ¬†My 7mo DD has a severe allergy to my cat so I have installed air filters and tried not to pet her very much without washing my hands. ¬†The problem is I must have handled this wrong. ¬†Now my cat clearly resents my DD and has tried to attack her on several occasions. ¬†This last time she launched at me while the baby was in my arms. ¬†My husband is adamant that she MUST GO!!! ¬†For 7.5 years, my cat has been a very sweet and wonderful cat. ¬†She is very affectionate and loving but I can tell that this relationship will not work anymore. ¬†ANY SUGGESTIONS?
i would talk to a behaviourist and get a vet check, anytime personality changes drastically a full vet workup is warrented as there may be a health issue involved.
I'm generally against the whole idea of "disposable" pets, but if my cat attacked my baby, he'd be on the next train out of town.¬† Forget the feline psychotherapy and ask your vet or a no-kill rescue group to help you rehome your cat ASAP.
Off to put on my flame-resistant suit...¬† :)
