I was probably the one that posted it. The main concern with cats is many of them carry bartonella and you wouldn't even know it. They usually don't show the signs but it can be transmitted to humans via scratch, lick, bite or from fleas. I'm not saying to get rid of the cats but they could pass it to a human and the symptoms for bartonella alone could easily be just like lyme. Something to take into consideration.
According to the typical medical system. Bartonella is another one of those "hard to get and easy to treat", they even go as far to say it usually does not require treatment. I have to disagree. I think most doctors don't even understand it.

Beth: I am so glad your allergist didnt recommend that you find a home for your dogs. That often happens. I had two golden retrievers for years that meant the world to me and I could not part with them no matter what. I did the drops also for years but shots are offered out here in Dallas. I got relief from both of them. The LOVE we get from out fur-babies is so important!! D
