Pet Allergies

http://www.hsus.org/pets/pet_care/allergies_to_pets/index.html

This is a great article I found by the humane society of the United States about allergies to pets. What a cruel world it is that people can be allergic to our furry friends. I know the feeling….I’m allergic to cats and went for allergy shots (as mentioned in the article) to help lessen the burden. Though I can be around cats for a little while without too much reaction, long-term exposure causes issues for me and therefore I can’t have a kitty. I’ve read that children who are brought up with pets have less issues with allergies, but it didn’t work for me as we always had cats and dogs around. Luckily, I can still have a dog with no issues.

The article is long, but worth the read.

The Random Sibling is allergic to cats (as is The Random Mother) though I thankfully dodged that bullet. We've noticed - for those needing help - that the generic form of Claritin (available over the counter at drugstores) seems to do wonders for both of them when they come to visit our house. That, and The Random Spouse vaccuums the day they arrive and every third day thereafter if they're staying a while. We also keep the guest room "cat free." We have three cats, but both of the "allergics" have been able to stay with relatively little difficulty, so the methods seem to be working.

We have noticed that Bengals create less allergens
than most house cats!
