Flying allergic to cats

Paula Borowska

I hate cats. I always have. I am not sure why. I never owned one and have very few friends who have them. My friend Shari has a cat and her cat likes me. I am not joking. Her cat Mirin really likes me. She follows me around when I am over to their house. She jumps on me. She rubs up against me.

I try to be nice. But not only do I not like cats, I am allergic to them. I quickly pop an Allegra when I am there. That act lead to my not so good reaction when mixing it with champagne. Yeah I know, not my best act. I actually forgot that I took the Allegra when I drank the champagne. But all turned out well.

I wonder if I am allergic to tigers. I think I must be, but am not so sure. Or lions, I bet I am allergic to them as well. And cougars, pumas, cheetahs, and others. I am not sure I will ever get close enough to any of them to really know for sure. And truth be told, it doesn't really matter. It's just something to think about and it makes me smile.

I am also not superstitious when it comes to cats. I like it when they cross my path as long as they are not coming towards me.
