CAT ALLERGY #shorts (funny video)
A cool little video about cat allergies. It's funny; the mix up is very easy to make. When we speak of a 'cat allergy' it can mean two things: a person who is allergic to cats or a cat who is allergic to certain things like food or environmental allergens.
So, if you say something like: I am looking for a treatment for a cat allergy it's not really clear what you mean. You have to rephrase it like this:
'I am looking for a treatment for my cat who suffers from allergies to unknown allergens'.
'I am looking for a treatment for my allergy to cats'.
It's boring, I know. But the jokey video is based on this weakness in the English language which is ambiguous on the issue of cat allergies!
