Question by Gareth B: Cat allergy?
Ive been allergic to cats and dogs all my life. Only have to be in the same room as one and thats it, eyes nose start to run, rash appears etc.
Moved in with my GF last year and her 1 year old cat, Murphy. Was dreading it, knowing what im like with them. Murphy wasnt allowed in the bedrooms, to keep my allergy under control. I work shifts so the first week of moving in I was on nights, first night I woke up with Murphy sleeping next to me, straight away thought oh god, im going to be bad, but no, felt like i didnt have an allergy.
So that was it, we became best buddies, While play fighting I would come out in a rash if he broke my skin, sometimes would make my eyes and nose run, but rare.
Sadly Murphy died after our neighbour through water at him while on our extension roof, he fell off awkwardly and knocked his head.
R Friends have just got 2 cats, but im really bad with them!
hy would this be? Murphy was a short hair black & white domestic, friends r SH dom

The only thing I can think of is that all cats are different, and Murphy’s body chemistry may not have been irritating to yours. That and you were around him a lot, so you could get used to him.
Could be all in your head too. You liked your gf and wanted it to work out, so you convinced yourself that Murphy wouldn’t cause irritation.
Hey, stranger things have happened.
