Cats and Allergies

Many people mistakenly believe that if they have allergies to cats, they must not have cats.  The reality is that it's VERY possible to own a cat and have allergies.  Adult allergy sufferers have access to many new products such as air purifiers and medications that were not previously available.  Most of the volunteers who work at the shelter have allergies.  It comes down to a choice.  One must decide that the joy of having a cat is worth the little extra effort required.  The inconvenience of using these products is arguably worth the many rewards of having a loyal pet friend.  Here are some links to articles concerning pet allergies as well as products that might be helpful:
