    Thank you all!!! Trey seems to be much better this morning, but I think I am going to put a call in to the dr. since he loves to play with the kids upstairs. He knows now that he can't pet the kitty anymore, unfortunately. He is fine with our bunnies...isn't that silly? He was also fine just being in their apartment until he was petting the kitty apparently. Very weird.

    Actually it is not the strange at all, he is probably allergic to the cat saliva, and the cat probably had just given itself a bath (a good lick), and then of course your son touched the cat, and then rubbed his face, typical kid thing...
