Question by Amethyzt Moon: Is someone in a household has asthma, is raising a cat a bad idea?
I have a short hair cat that I’ve had for 2 years now, and my father who has asthma says that we need to get rid of her because she’ll irritate his asthma. I love my cat, but of course my father comes first, but I need to confirm whether cats irritate asthma or not. What do you think / know about this?
Also, she has been peeing and pooping sometimes in random places (she is litter trained but she’s been bad ever since about a year ago) How can I fix this?

That will depend on why he has asthma. If it is sport induced asthma it probably wont affect him. If his asthma is a result of an allergy then a cat probably isn’t a good idea. He should talk to the doctor that prescribes his asthma medicine and ask if a cat is a bad idea.
