...or does anyone else see a house filled with cats. Although I wouldn't want to put that mom in the situation of having to choose between the cats and her daughter.

Actually although I see one cat inthe clip, I would guess that they should have ruled that out as a cause (or a least I would hope so). Usually I too have an allergy to cat and dog fur, but after staying at my brothers house, along with his two cats, for a few days, the symptoms go away, or at least reduce to almost nothing. This being the case, I would imagine that the cat in the house should not be the problem, but having said that, there is absolutely no question in my mind that if the cat was found to be the cause, it would be sent to live out it's days with friends or family elsewhere...how could anyone even hesitate if it is the health of ones child at stake?
