Anyone who has allergies may worry about the safety of feeding a cat. Good news to them is that it’s safe for cats and people with allergies to live together. Actually a lot of things you can do to make your life easier.
Cats’ allergies are caused by reactions to several proteins primarily found in secretions from a cat’s skin and a cat’s saliva. These proteins have a close connection with your cat’s hair and skin and, and are released into the environment when they start to shed.
Some people claim developing immunity to their cat. But you can’t depend all hopes on it. The allergic reaction would get worse with more exposure.
If you have a cat, frequently cleaning the house is vital to avoid allergies:
Wipe down the dust in smooth surfaces in the home regularly, and vacuum frequently as well
Frequently wash any bedding that your cat has contacts.
You may want to restrain your cats to move in certain areas of the house. Never let them enter the allergic person’s bedroom.
Rooms with hardwood floors contain less allergen and they are easier to clean than carpet.
If you have carpets in only a few rooms in your house, you probably should keep your cat out of those.
Upholstered furniture pieces contain a lot of allergens so you should keep your cats off them.
In addition, a weekly brushing can be a good way to provide a clean environment for your cat. It is extremely helpful in reducing allergic reactions because it can prevent loose hair from getting into the air. Pay close attention to groom during springtime when your cat is shedding its winter coat. Regularly cleaning the litter box can make a favor as the proteins could lead to a reaction in saliva, hair and dander found in urine. If possible, all grooming should be done by someone who isn’t allergic to cats. An outdoor occasion would be better if possible.
In all, you should consult your doctor about which anti-allergenic drugs you can take to deal with the problem.
