Coping With Cat Allergies
Before making any decision to get a cat, you should look into whether you and your family members are allergic to cats. Many people are allergic to cats, some more so than others. Too often, people bring home a pet only to find out later that they or their children are allergic to cats.
Although pet allergy symptoms can be keep under control, in many cases for some allergy sufferers, the various sneezing, stuffy nasal passages and itchy, watery eyes become too much to bear. Eventually, it becomes virtually impossible for them to stay with the cat.
As a result, many cats are sent to animal shelters each year as their allergic owners can no longer bear the severity of their allergy symptoms.
Even if you do not suffer from cat allergies, consider others close to you who may no longer feel comfortable
