Thank you all for your input and advice. I've decided that the moving scenario earlier described isn't in the best interests of my girls, and would ultimately not be in the best interests of my relationship, so I won't be doing it.

I think that the issue beloved SO and I will have to focus on will be the allergy issue, and that's quite enough without having to worry about the kitties in a small space, their reactions to a dog in the house and the other myriad issues that my move would have created.

As for the allergy issue, I've got outrite allergy for cats (cyberisme - props), febreze anti-allergen and I clean the apartment regularly. The cats aren't allowed in the bedroom.

Now, step two. Can anyone recommend a really good air-purifier? One that will help in removing allergens from the air? SO and I had a long talk about all of the kitty concerns this weekend. We both want to do all we can to make this work. There may be a sad reality of parting with the kitties eventually if it doesn't get better, so we want to do everything possible first.

We discussed:

Allergy shots (do they work?)

Air purifiers (suggestions welcome)

And, most sadly, alternate home for kitties. Fortunately, my mother has offered to take them if all else fails. She's a good kitty mama. But, I want to avoid that, so all thoughts and suggestions are welcome.
