So I walk into Boots with an idea of finding a nice soft baby brush to brush Mira's tummy because she likes having her tummy stroked but the metal comb we have would hurt her.

Assistant in Boots is walking through the baby aisle and sees a lost looking person and offers to help.
She shows lost person to a plastic baby brush and comb set.
Lost person says - Oh thank you, but no, it would hurt her tummy.
Assistant goes off to help someone else.

I re-run the conversation in my head but from the Assistant's side.  There are other chemists I can go to while I live in Birmingham, possibly for several decades.

I became allergic to quite a few things but including cats about sixteen years ago.  It followed a long stay in hospital.  I was and raised in the country and have often been told I can't be allergic but I am.

Various experiments of sniffing visiting various pet owning homes and sniffing various cats belonging to friends have taught me the following;

1. It amuses peoples although the cats' reactions range from disgust to "oh, the can opener is showing me love".
2. Houses without wall to wall carpets mean I'm less likely to have a reaction.
3. Shorter haired cats (Buzz, Ish, Horus, Lester) are better which runs contrary to advice I've found on the net.
4. Boy cats seem easier which again is contrary to advice I've found on the net.
5. I sometimes react to maine coons and sometimes to other long haired cats but recently didn't react to a long haired cat but that was at a wooden floored house.
6. Abyssinians seem to cause no problems.(Ish & Potchka)

So I'd love a Norwegian Forest Cat.  Am I dreaming?
