If you’re allergic to cats, that’s extremely unfortunate because then you’ll never get to experience the joy of living with a furry dictator who controls your every movement in your own house. Still, some people allergic to cats want them anyways, despite the problems it may cause.

So if you insist on getting a cat despite allergies, take time to minimize the problem. You may need to take daily doses of medicine to keep your allergies at bay. In addition, give your cat a bath once a week to reduce the amount of pet dander floating in the air.

Also consider getting an air filter that can clean the air of floating dander from your feline. With enough preparation, you can live with a cat despite any allergies, although why you’d want to torture yourself to do so shows the power that cats already have over humans.
