She invited me to go with her to the get together, but I wasn’t sure I could handle
Recently, I had the opportunity to talk to a tiger. I know how ridiculous this sounds, but she was dressed as a tiger. I had never heard of furries before, but she was a member of this phenomenon that is happening. It seems that there are a lot of people who like to dress up as animals, and they have regular get togethers. Some of their outfits costs them thousands of dollars, and they truly look authentic. I was teasing her about the fur being a problem, and she told me only with her air filters. She said that she needs to brush the fur to keep it fluffy. A lot of the hair flies into the air, and it gets into her air ducts. Then she has to clean the air filters so that she has good airflow in her house. She said she also has three tiger cats in her home. Along with the fur and dander of her ‘babies’ and her own tiger hair, it was a constant battle to keep the air filters clean, and the hair off her furniture. I didn’t laugh or even crack a smile the entire time I was talking to her. She invited me to go with her to the get together, but I wasn’t sure I could handle. I told her that I was allergic to animal fur and I was afraid I would end up sneezing and having an asthma attack. I didn’t want to ruin her get together. I saw the hair flying as she walked away and I realized it would be a problem for her air quality, but I couldn’t help but wonder if she was someone I knew.
