Suffering From Allergies ? You Can Still Adopt a Cat | NBC New York
Hi, I was wondering if the new cat allergy shot was out yet, and if it is cheaper than the weekly shot?
Other Ways of Curbing Cat Allergies Until the new vaccine becomes widely available, the Humane Society of the United States suggests that you try these five steps if your household includes one or more cat-allergy sufferers:
Some very good news is that the same research know-how that resulted in the new cat-allergy vaccine is being applied to allergies caused by dust mites, ragweed, grass, birch tree and moulds. In the future, most allergies may therefore figuratively bite the dust.

A research study reports a new vaccine for people with cat allergies may soon be available. This new vaccine lasts eight (8) times longer than existing vaccines.A couple of years ago I was getting really stuffed up so I went to an allergist and I'm now also allergic to trees and grass but my cat allergy has lessened. My allergist said it's very common to develop new allergies later in life. She also said that yes, you can build up an immunity to your own cats. I'm fine with my cats but my friends cat gives me the worst reactions I've ever had. The cat also hates me and is the only cat who's ever reacted that way towards me. I just think he's evil.Even if you do develop this immunity, remember that it’s only to your specific cats. Most likely, your allergies will flare up all over again if you are around new cats.Never had trouble with cats before, but just got a new housemate that has one. I'm sneezing a lot and my eyes are itchy. Could I be allergic to cats? Why would this be happening now, when I'm 28?I brought home a new kitten (Morbier from my Molly’s fosters) and my husband thinks he’s allergic to him. We have another cat who has a double coat of very long fur without any problems. Since I married Bob, we also had Bobo a Russian Blue mix with long fur. Morbier has short fur. How can you be allergic to a small kitten and not two big furry cats? I gave Morbier (now Sparky) a bath in our shampoo and towel dried him until totally dry, in case he had some allergens on him from my daughter’s house. AND Bob does fine at her house with five resident cats and assorted foster kittens. I am confused. Any suggestions? Help!I am technically allergic to both cats and dogs, however, there was no way that I was going to go through my entire life without having a furbaby to love and call my own! Roll back the calendar to 20 years ago … I was a young mother to my 4 year old son who had been begging me for a kitten for as long as he could talk! One day while out shopping in the local mall, we saw one of the most beautiful long haired kittens in a pet shop window (she turned out to be a Maine Coin cat). We both wanted her soooo bad, but I knew what was in store for me if I were to bring her home, so I immediately went to the pharmacy before even bringing our new kitty home, and had my allergy meds prescription filled! I won’t lie but it felt like I was living in hell (feeling like I was sick with a cold or flu for 3-4 months straight). After I realized that I didn’t need my allergy meds anymore, I started hanging out at friends’ homes that had multi cat households, and it only took a couple of weeks to get my immunity up with them too!! So what’s the next thing I did? About a year after I got our furbaby, I ended up rescuing 3 kittens by bring them to my home.
