Allergic to cats? No problem!

Allergic To Cats Can Still Keep Their Cats

Does it necessarily mean that if you are allergic to cats that is why you should not have any or should you give up the cat you already have? Now you can learn how to minimize pet-related allergies by only doing some little changes and adjustments to your environment. Trying to control your allergies does really take much work and time but if you do really want it, be positive! Yes you can do it!

Allergens-substances which are usually invisible to the human eyes such as pollen, dust, mold spore and food additives is the cause of allergic reactions. It is rare for people with allergies to be allergic into just one thing. The skin, follicles, hair and saliva of your pet is where we can found also its allergens associated in these parts. Most of the cause of pet allergies are from dander - a natural-occuring combination of saliva and skin cells that your pet is continually shedding. The protein content of this dander causes those allergic reactions. Dander can imbed in commonly in your furniture, in your draperies and carpet. It can be anywhere which remains to cause more allergic reactions.


A cat allergen called “Fel d 1” is one of the major alleregic reaction causes to cats. Fel d 1 protein in the saliva is deposited on the furduring your cats cleaning process where it licks their body. It can be produced also by sebaceous glands. It is the gland responsible for keeping the skin and hair sleek and shiny through the oil it secrete. Female cats produce lesser allergen than un-neutered cats usuall. Even the protein found in the urine of your cats can also trigger allergic reactions.

Some other animals are more tolerable because they only produce lesser allergen in their body. There are no non-allergic animal, unfortunately. Other pet owners would claim that the hair length of a certain pet can alter also the animals allergenicity, well it is not true. Somehow, an allergic person may have this one kind of a breed on which it's allergen is tolerable for you.

Usually, allergies are cumulative. It is still the total allergen level that causes a reaction, though the allergic person is sensitive to a more than one thing. It always depends on how many allergens are in the environment you are in, whether or not a person has symptoms. If the allergen level of a certain environment is below the allergy level threshold of the allergic person, there will be no any noticeable allergy symptoms be found. If allergen level is plenty enough to exceed the certain level, now the trouble begins for it will surely react. Minimize exposure to airborne allergens that may exceed the tolerance threshold that could trigger attack, that is the goal.
