I want a kitten but my boyfriend is allergic. Is there anything he can take to stop the allergy?
My boyfriend is fine with dogs but when it comes to cats, he is very allergic. I've always wanted a kitten, but of course I'm concerned about his health since he has asthma too. Are there any really good allergy meds out there?

Hmmmm, first of all, I HAVE discussed this with him. Second of all, I am NOT living with him. And third, of course I care about my partner, and if I didn't have any doubts, I wouldn't be asking this question now would I? Jump to conclusions somewhere else.

Decide which you want more - the boyfriend or the cat. Sure he may be able to take allergy meds but why should he?

If you really care about your partner, you won't subject him to a decade of allergy Medication. That's not cool. Eventually he will get sick of having to take so much medication that you will have to get rid of the cat, which is unfair on the animal.

Just don't get a cat. It isn't fair on anyone. Some allergy medications are expensive and have nasty side effects.

Have you discussed this with him? Perhaps he doesn't want you to get a cat. Shouldn't he have some input as well? After all, if he is living with you, he should have some control over the environment of the home.

don't get a cat. decide if his health is more important than your needs.

Apparently you are too concerned about his health. Even the cat dander on your clothes will be enough to trigger an attack. Get a little dog, or get a new boyfriend.

special k :)
there are cats that dont have much hair on them like the Cornish Rex varitey (may be a good alternative for you). to me they look kinda odd without all the fur you'd normally get but am sure the personalitys would be a winner, guess it depends on a whole lot of stuff in your situation but cats are great pets to have and you dont have to walk them like you have to walk a dog and they dont have that doggy smell and are a pure joy to have around when your on your own. you could get a cat and if you find your partner is too allergic to it the cat would then have to be "free to a good home"
good luck :)

depends how allergic he is. most people with asthma arent affected by cats.. its a lame excuse. and it doesnt matter how furry the cat is either-it has to do with certain chemicals on the cats tongue that are released into the air. i have a friend who is RELLE allergic to cats and cant even be around them or in my house because of my cat. his throat almost swells shut when he stays too long (thats bad- dont get a cat if he is like this!!!). if your bf is one of those ppl that use that crap excuse that their eyes get watery and their nose runs, when the touch it and touch their face that is no reason to not get a cat. that happens all the time. you just dont touch the cat and rub your eyes relle hard (as i have done before), its just the hair irritating you. i know a couple ppl who put off getting a family cat because of that reason and its just an excuse for people that dont like cats.

If he is not severly allergic, you can see if he can take benedryl, or Rx meds ( like singular, Nasonex or asmanex). Get an airfilter and put it in each room to filter out the danger and other crap. If the cat causes him to have an asthma attack or anaphlaxis, you are out of luck.
See if there is a short hair breed cat that poses the least threat to allergies. A cat breeder would know. I hope this helps.

When I met my husband I already had a cat, the love of my life and getting rid of her was out of the question. After a while he became less allergic because his body built up antigens to the allergy. About 2 years ago he decided he wanted to get rid of the allergy altogether so he started getting shots for it (and many other allergies he has) and at this point he is so much better, the cat is allowed to sleep in bed with us!

Don't listen to these other people who want to shame you for wanting the happiness of a pet in your life, if your boyfriend loves you he will do what it takes to ensure your happiness, I assure you that your house is not the only place he will have to deal with a cat at in his life, getting the allergy properly addressed by a doctor is the best possible way to handle the unfortunate allergy.
