That and a blankie while sucking one's thumb should work at calming them down.

Otherwise the airlines can permit smoking again and hand out cigarettes along with the Biscoff's.

Blame the scammers and liars. How did we ever function so long without support kittens?

How about the woman who tried to take a damned Peacock on a flight, claiming it was her support animal?
Many actually do need a support animal. Many just need an excuse as well.

We even keep treats for them, but the people who can not function without a dog, cat, or alligator by their side have problems a pet ain't gonna fix !

I realize there are some people who are emotionally not all there, but this whole thing has gotten way out of hand. If I couldn't go somewhere without my cat Lucky there to make it ok, I would stay at home.
The local Costco posted a sign outside the entrance a few months back that says ESA are not allowed. Service animals welcome but NO ESAs.

I’ve seen them stop people with their dogs and get cussed out, yelled at and otherwise abused. We were coming in one time and they had security there because some guy was trying to force his way in with his dog. These people are unhinged.

Or leave the damn dog at home.

They can't ask for proof. The only two questions any business can ask is "is that a service animal" and "what tasks is it trained to perform?" Anything further is a violation of ADA.



Also service animals cannot ride in carts or sit on chairs or any other public seating.

The last time I was in a Walmart was a week ago, the largest store in the entire chain, in Albany NY. When I went through self-checkout there was a woman who had either a min-pin of chihuahua in her arms at one of the other kiosks. Someone let her in with that dog.

You can still take animals on a flight, though, yes? They just have to be a certain size to fit under your seat or they have to fly cargo.

Well, that is the solution. A person may encounter a dog or cat at any time outside their home, that includes flights.

Nobody should have to take an allergy pill for *support* dogs. Service dogs, fine. There's nothing those folks can do about their very real challenges.

Cat allergies can be particularly bad. I know two people who were on allergy and asthma meds and inhalers and both were hospitalized after being in homes that had cats.

And as I posted earlier, these dogs aren't trained and people have been bitten. It's not just about allergies.
