42. hello there ...
Edited on Tue Jun-03-08 12:26 AM by CountAllVotes
I too have been told since I was a youngster that I am allergic to cats. The problem is that I LOVE cats. My life revolves around my cats as I don't have any children (THANK GOD FOR THAT!).

I was recently told to get rid of my cats and I hedged. My husband said, "Well we can get rid of the cats and see if you feel better, but I suspect you will feel much worse." He was so right. I couldn't live with myself if I had to get rid of my precious cats!

I now have three cats and I deal with the allergies. I take Allegra-D if they are really acting up and I take Allegra 60 2X a day to control them. If I miss a pill, I sure notice it quick. One of my cats is basically adhered to my side at all times (devotion - this is what you get from a rescued cat I've found). :D

I also have these sponges made to pick-up pet hair and they are called "GONZO" sponges (do not buy the faux ones as they aren't nearly as good). I buy them on eBay. They help to control the problem along with vacuuming at least once a week.

I'd recommend having cats with short fur rather than long fur if possible. Luckily, all three of my cats do have short hair. The less fur the better.

Best of luck to you and your cats and yes, I know exactly where you are coming from.

As for Senator Byrd ... :cry:

He is one fine man and a hell of a Senator. I hope he recovers as I hope Sen. Kennedy does too. It really is all too much! :(
