We like to have family and friends visit us, but my husband is allergic to a lot of things, including animal dander, so we ask them not to bring their pets with them, but some of them still do it and sometimes the effects last a long time after they are gone.
Queenie, how do we make them understand?—Concerned wife
I hope you have an enclosed yard or some place outside your home where the pets can stay while their owners are visiting. If not, try to arrange for such. Otherwise, you will have to strictly enforce your “no pets” rule, even if it means seeming inhospitable at times.
