Does kitty make you sneeze?

Cat allergy is the most common pet allergy, and affects nearly half of asthma sufferers. If you're allergic to your cat, rest assured in the fact that there's a lot you can do to lessen the effect of your pet's dander. Take action: Vacuum the carpets, floors and beds thoroughly each week; bath your cat weekly – cats bathed from an early age generally don’t mind being bathed; ban the cat from the bedroom; wipe down the bedroom walls with a damp cloth to remove allergen deposits regularly. Regular airing of the home and thorough vacuum cleaning will reduce the level of cat allergen.
